The FI and I didn’t have engagement picture taken, but we wanted fun pictures by the beach, for our save-the-date cards.
We live near Long Beach, but we drove up to Santa Monica so we could try and have the ferris wheel that’s on the pier, in the background.
It was miserably crowded.
Well duh Lady Moriarty… it’s tourist season, end of summer, and a Saturday afternoon. I can’t believe I didn’t realize that until we got there.
There was no space anywhere. So we decided to grab some lunch, and head home and try some pictures by the beach near our apartment…
It too was awful, but for different reasons. The beach was quiet, not too busy, and there was plenty of room to get ocean shots, …but the wind was so hard, it was making my eyes water and both of us squint, and the sun was starting to set, so it was glaring on one side of our face.
Bummer. I’m exhausted… we drove so much today, and don’t even have 1 decent photo for our save-the-dates.
Plan B is now in action: a graphic save-the-date card. My FI is a graphic designer so, he’ll get a kick out of designing something fun. I’m just bummed because I thought I had this all perfectly planned out. Boo. 🙁
