beau & mckenzie : venice beach
this was definitely 100% a collaboration between Kenz and I. we phone chatted about what to wear and where we’d go, had a pinterest board going, all about what Kenz and beau wanted the photos to feel like. a romance classic and timeless and cinematic. to feel like a story (theirs).
I landed in LA that morning.
and was with Mckenzie and beau by noon. we chatted for a while in their home about harry potter and how they fell in love. their cat hopped up beside me on the table as McKenzie finished her hair. we parked, walked a couple blocks to an empty beach. just the three of us running around under thick grey marine layer. and then back to the car, a long drive downtown to an iconic bar. again it was just them and me listening to music and creating together under warm dim lights. and they danced. and i tried not to shout too loudly but it was magic—like fall backwards into a hazy lovely dream sequence, can’t catch your breath, your hands go numb magic.
you and me. utopia. utopia.
