Engagement Pictures

I love doing engagement photography in Los Angeles. The weather is usually predictable, the locations are endless, and the people are unique and in love. These two were adorable. So easy to photograph. When I asked them about spots around Los Angeles that were significant to them, they mentioned a little village coffee shop where Zak proposed, and then a nearby beach-cliff area where they liked to hike. So we hit both, right around sunset, and got an amazing set of engagement photos!

I love helping plan surprise proposals in Yosemite National Park. Jackson contacted me about it months before, and we set up a plan. Originally, we were going to meet at Glacier Point at sunrise. I was going to be photographing my dog or my husband and just happen to turn my camera at the right moment. Unfortunately, Glacier closed early that year due to weather. I was on my way up there and we agreed to meet at Tunnel View instead. He sent me photos of the two of them so I could recognize them. I advised them on and out-of-the-way spot we could get away from the crowds. On the day of, it was going past their time and I didn’t see them. So I went down to the main area to find them. Jackson instantly recognized me and “happened” to ask about an “out-of-the-way, secluded spot” where they could watch the sunrise. So, still pretending to be a random person, I offered to take them up to my favorite spot. While we clambered over spots, I asked if I could take their photo. When we got to the spot, I set it up so she turned away, then when she turned back around, Jackson was down on one knee. She was so surprised!!

For those of you who have looked through my website, you know I don’t do a ton of downtown LA engagement photography. But when these two told me about their relationship and how they had grown there, it wasn’t even a question. We started off at the Walt Disney Concert Hall doing the first engagement photos, and then wandered downtown in a route I planned while on a film shoot earlier that month.

Kevork and Melody are a unique couple. Kevork is a tall, gangly guy who loves his car. Melody is a graceful girl with delicate fingers and a gorgeous mass of thick, dark hair. As soon as they got in front of the camera, the engagement photos started going amazing. We did engagement photos at Lake Silverwood, California. I live near there, so I had scouted some locations ahead of time and knew exactly where I wanted to take them.

Leila and Jeff flew in from Chicago. They have spent so much time exploring the USA and wanted to take their Yosemite engagement photos at the national park as part of their travels. We met around 3pm, walked around, and made a fun circuit of Yosemite valley.

After much going back and forth, these two international kids decided it was time to get married. So although we were planning a big Los Angeles wedding last year, it never happened. But I am their Los Angeles wedding photographer, so I offered to do an elopement announcement session instead! I’m so glad they took me up on it! We went down to the beach and caught one of the most spectacular sunsets I’ve seen in quite awhile.
