I’ve been getting a lot of really great engagement sessions, so hoping to post a bunch of them this week. This first one was sent to me by the photographer and future groom – Tim Melideo. Lucky for Merrill-Ashley (his fiancee), Tim is a photographer. He took these himself with the help of a tripod, and I love the 50’s beach vibe of them. Tim told me these are mainly to display at their wedding (which is going to be at one of my fav locations, the Smog Shoppe). Merrill-Ashley (and Tim) run a vintage shop in LA, check out her blog for fab vintage finds. Thanks so much for sending me these and can’t wait for your wedding! Oh, and how cute is their puppy??!!
Such an awesome engagement shoot- straight out of a 1950s issue of Vogue. Love it!

jemmessica… the bathing suit is from urban outfitters. ready for this…. $9.99!!! on sale from $129. We got it last year, though, so I don’t think you’ll be able to get one. Check ebay :)
