Last weekend I met up with Brett & Odessa for a couple hours in Manhattan Beach to shoot their engagement session. I had met Brett and his family a few years earlier while shooting his brother’s gorgeous wedding. With the weather being perfect and the sun giving us outstanding light I couldn’t image this session being anymore amazing.
We started off at the iconic Manhattan Beach restaurant, The Kettle, where Brett and Odessa met for the first time one fortuitous morning at 5AM. They had been sitting back to back in different booths when Brett had to peek over at who was talking so loudly behind him. Obviously they hit it off! Here are a few fun photos recreating the first time they met.
A few more at The Kettle before heading out.
The amazing light and amazing couple make this session a blast
After a quick wardrobe change we headed under the pier and for stroll along the beach

I love this photo Justin took just as the sun was setting
I captured the opposite angle just as the sunset.
