santa monica beach engagement session

I met Xiaohang and Jeffrey for their engagement session at their loft overlooking the Santa Monica Ocean. It was suppose to be a sunny day however, things somehow took a turn for the worse I as arrived. The skies turned grey and it started to pour. Luckily, they had an amazing view from their balcony and cool architecture around their building. The showers were sporadic but heavy so we had to time our shots. Once we noticed the sky starting to clear, we took the PCH to Malibu to shoot a sunset shot. As soon as we arrived to the location, it started to pour. I said screw it and we ran out, got drenched (including all my equipment) however; I managed to pull off a pretty epic shot as the sun was starting to poke through the clouds out in the ocean.
