If you think we just do engagement photos in luscious fields or oceanside bluffs, you’re wrong. Candice and Tony wanted to do something different for their engagement photos since their wedding will be at a beautiful winery (the Europa Village Winery to be exact). After looking over our location guide, we both agreed that an epic urban, downtown Long Beach engagement session would be the perfect contrast to their soon-to-be dreamy wedding photos!

We both knew Tony from working at Apple (he trained Nancy!) and we loooooove to joke around with each other. So it made sense that we were going to make the session focused on being silly!

And Candice and Tony did not disappoint. It was insane how easy they made this session. From running around the parking structure, to crossing streets, and dancing around in an alleyway, our time with Candice and Tony was effortlessly fun. These two were full of energy, and we love that they chose to do an outfit change!! Both outfits were the perfect complement to the downtown, urban backdrops we were working with throughout the shoot.

We finished off the night grabbing margaritas and tacos at a local spot called Padres. Pork belly tacos and margaritas to end the night? It was the literal picture-perfect send-off for us!
