Venice Beach Engagement Session by Los Angeles Wedding Photographer Brandi Potter

I’ve been obsessed with Venice Beach since the first time that I went back in 2012, and I try to go to the boardwalk at least once every time I’m in town visiting. I love all the different types of people that go to the boardwalk, and just really enjoy people watching. I’m not a huge beach person but this is one I will willingly go to and sit on just to hang out. There’s just so much to see, and so many people to interact with.

I think the main reason I HAD to go to Venice the first time is because I’m obsessed with The Doors and Jim Morrison. It’s basically where the band started and where Jim lived for a bit on rooftops while he would write songs. There’s also a giant mural (pictured in some photos) of him that I walk by every time I’m down there. If you’re a doors fan and get a chance YOU HAVE TO GO. No if’s, and’s or butts. Just do it, and while you’re there go down to Abbot Kenny and eat some Korean Tacos and get some ice cream at Salt & Straw. You’ll thank me later.
