Photos by Anni Compton with some assistance by yours truly :)
About a month ago, Anni had an engagement shoot in LA and she was sweet enough to invite me to tag along. I was only there for 2 and a half days but boy did the West Coast ensnare my heart, we stayed in an airbnb pad a block from Venice Beach and that was pretty much perfection. Also, while waiting to get a table at Gjelina I totally spotted Owen Wilson picking up some take-out and Anni may or may not be a little bitter that I didn’t get her attention when he walked right past us. (Sorry, lady!)
On our first full day there, Anni and I decided to explore the neighborhood and bring her camera with us to capture some portraits of each other and take full advantage of the beautiful California light. It was so fun to play quasi-photographer–Anni prepared the settings on the camera, I pretty much just pointed and shot–and finally get Anni in front of the camera for a change. Don’t we all agree that she should do that more often, she’s pretty damn photogenic!
