Our Engagement Photos










During our Christmas trip, Alex and I were incredibly lucky to meet photographer Max Wanger and his beautiful girlfriend Margaux in Los Angeles. We played in a park, with a giant pink balloon, and, somewhat bizarrely, on a trampoline at musician Mark Mothersbaugh‘s house. (Their friend was housesitting for him.) Max just sent us the photos, and we are absolutely thrilled; I have probably looked through them a thousand times. See many more on Max’s website. Thank you so much, Max!

P.S. Plus, the photos that first made us fall in love with Max on Smitten.

  1. Great pictures, Mark and Beth. What great photographers to capture your dating and courtship so thoughtfully and well. It was great to see you at the wedding!

  2. After having some security concerns over the use of hydrogen to fill the balloons, the inflated helium balloons came into the fore.
    The helium gas is much safer to use and has one-tenth the lifting power of the hydrogen gas.
