I was out shooting with Elise & Kristopher (one of my awesome couples :) in Venice, CA for their engagement session when we met Travis, who was working away on one of the public walls by the skatepark.
I had no idea btw that there were legal public spaces available to anyone who wants to create graffiti art!

Here's a link to learn more!

I've always loved & supported street art so this is pretty darn cool if I do say so :D.

We struck up a conversation with him, and the next thing we know, he's tagging their last name on a wall so we can take some shots with it!
LOL Travis, you totally made our day - you seriously rock \m/ .

 Travis, you are shirtless & also awesome XD! Here he is tagging their name on the wall!

The situation was very serendipitous, as we had scheduled this mini shoot due to the fact that a couple weeks ago we had to end our session a little early due to really crazy, unexpected, high winds - LOL as you can see from the image below!

This day though, ended with a beautiful sunset :) .
