Liz & Mark | Engagement | Montana Ave | Santa Monica, Ca

I would love to introduce you to Liz and Mark whom will be tying the knot next month at the SmogShoppe in Los Angeles. I can’t describe how much I enjoy hanging out with both Mark and Liz. They are two of the chillest and nicest couple you will ever meet. I met Liz way back during my freshmen year in college at UC Irvine. Flash forward 13 years later (wow! how time flies), she will be getting married to Mark next month. Liz is originally from Brazil and Mark is from the Bay Area. Anyone from the Bay Area will always have my love and respect, as that is where I was born and raised. For their engagement session, we headed out to Montana Ave in Santa Monica; “Santa Monica’s premier shopping destination. Just minutes from the ocean, Montana Ave. (from 7th to 17th St) is home to more than 150 high-end boutiques, restaurants, and service establishments”.¬†

Montana Ave was the perfect location for their engagement session as it was also the same location for their first date. We ended back at the same restaurant they had their first date at, ¬†Babalu Bakery & Restaurant, for a delicious dinner. It’s been such a pleasure getting to know Mark and Liz, I just can’t wait to see them on their wedding day!
