An Engagement Shoot On Balboa Island - Avni and Andy

Gabriel Ryan

by day, he works as an english teacher and she works in the non-profit sector.  by passion... now that's a different context altogether.

avni and andy are a couple of aspiring novelists.  when we first met at the shade hotel in manhattan beach, over a couple of beers, i was inspired just to have met them, let alone to have the opportunity to photograph their wedding over a year away.  i immediately began to create this fantastical image of a young couple, living in a hip studio apartment in los angeles, who might do their best work with their iPod on shuffle, tucked away in the corner of their local non-chain coffee shop.  i had no idea if that is who avni and andy were, but i was excited to get to know their story.

and despite my unavoidable fear, in the midst of a couple professional writers, of spelling words like "altogether" wrong, or over-punctuating, or making up ideas like "over-punctuating," or simply making no sense with my words whatsoever, or making sentences way too long [case in point], i am thrilled to introduce you to avni and andy.

check out the photos of our time together, and then take a moment to hear a bit of their story, in their own words...
