A lot of people say that social media only causes insecurity, but I would argue to say that if don’t correctly, social media can be used to create some beautiful things, like a friendship.
When I first announced that I was going to Los Angeles, I immediately started asking around to see if I could find a couple to photograph while out there. I mean, it’s Los Angeles, and I’m a photographer from the east coast - how could I not do a session on the beach?
After a series of people tagging friends and commenting, I got a message from Paula about being interested in the session. We then chat on the phone for maybe forty-five minutes, and I immediately knew that I got the perfect couple.
After the beach, they took me over to the famous Santa Monica Pier. I may or may not have been internally geeking out.
Tom + Paula, thank you so much for showing me around Santa Monica. I had a blast with you two, and I cannot wait to see the photos from your wedding next year. Let’s grab lunch next time I’m in SoCal.
