Doreen & Ely : Engaged : Venice, CA

I have this list – places I’d love to shoot my couples. Nothing fancy, just ordinary places, just being. Couch hanging, ferris wheel-ing, flying, thrifting. Lounging in a hammock has long been on this list. There’s something so romantic about a hammock – closeness, nowhere to be, wrapped in comfort. I can’t be the only one who squeals every time I see one so when I spotted a hammock on Doreen & Ely’s recent engagement session, I did just that. Lucky for me, they went along with my excitement. Following my lead, Doreen & Ely climbed into the hammock (in someone’s private yard!) like champs.  They melted into one another, slowly rocking side to side, relaxing as the summer sun began to set. And with that, I happily checked off a couple in a hammock off my list. I’m so happy to have couples like Doreen & Ely who graciously trust me and just let go.
