I do rather enjoy a nice cocktail in a swanky wine or cocktail bar – especially with my gorgeous man. On the rare occasion when we are lucky enough to rope in a babysitter. We do try to make an effort, dress up a bit posh, and go somewhere special. That’s when I especially love to treat myself to a cocktail. I love the creative blend of delicious flavours, their stylish appeal in elegant glasses, and all the pretty trimmings. They can make me feel oh-so-glamorous (even if it’s only for one night!). So, for this reason (and many others), I was totally smitten with this Santa Monica engagement session beautifully captured by Christina Dely. Inspired by Hollywood glamour, this chic couple planned their shoot over two gorgeous locations – sipping martini’s at cocktail hour in an elegant Penthouse cocktail bar and frolicking in the surf at Santa Monica beach. It really is two amazing engagement shoots wrapped up into one stunning e-session, and I savored every delectable sip!
Photographer Christina shares: He is an actor. She works in Entertainment Advertising Sales. So it was only fitting Christina & Ezra were inspired by Hollywood Glamor and planned to shoot their engagement session at the luxurious and chic Huntley Hotel in Santa Monica. The couple spent the evening sipping dirty martini’s in the Huntley’s Zagat rated Penthouse restaurant and lounging among the carved African daybeds, drum tables, and leather-covered benches in the striking lobby designed by Thomas Schoos. Just moments away from the Santa Monica beaches, we wrapped up the engagement shoot by splashing & playing around in the surf. I cannot wait to shoot their beautiful destination wedding in Puerto Vallarta!
Thank you Christina for sharing this stunning shoot. We can’t wait to see their wedding in Mexico!
