Engagement Pictures

Amman contacted me early in the year, looking for someone to photograph his surprise proposal to his girlfriend. I was SO EXCITED. So we went back and forth for a little while, came up with a cover story, got rained out the day we were supposed to do it, rescheduled, came up with another story, and then we went!

When these two showed up, ready to rock, dressed super cute, and were willing to walk through tall grass and adventure in nature, I knew we could create something amazing together. They have an amazing festival vibe, appropriate to how they met. I loved doing their Los Angeles engagement pictures.

Back in December these two booked me for their Los Angeles engagement photography. We figured out a spot and met for sunset at the beach. As you can probably tell, we had so much fun taking these photos. They hadn’t really taken couple photos before, but they were willing to do anything I suggested and, of course, it helps that they’re both gorgeous!

I want to preface this by saying that I think all true professionals deserve to be paid for their work. Even if it’s an art, if someone puts time and effort and skill into creating something for you, they deserve to be compensated in some way. Engagement pictures in Los Angeles (and simply living in Los Angeles) are expensive. But it’s also expensive for the photographer, who spends hours both before and after the shoot preparing, then editing, as well as coordinating with you.

I love doing engagement pictures in Los Angeles. These two had a short window of time to make it work, and it happened to land on the most beautiful day in the fall. We got to meet at Chino Creek Wetlands, and then headed to the Los Angeles Water and Power building for an amazing view of the downtown skyline at night!

This is Vanessa and Steven. I was able to take their engagement pictures towards the beginning of November at Malibu Creek State Park in Los Angeles. Vanessa wore an amazing red dress and Steven was dapper in a crisp suit with an open collar. The entire look worked very well. They were both a little nervous but you couldn’t tell it from the photos!

I fell in love with these two. I feel like every good photographer just a little falls in love with each of their clients. As an engagement photographer in Los Angeles, I relish the chance to use nature in my portraits. And Multnomah Falls has definitely been on my photographer’s bucket list for awhile.

As a portrait photographer, I always have a running list in my head of beautiful places. And when a couple like this says, “Whatever you think is best,” this is the result. These two were so sweet and obviously loved each other deeply. Their affection wasn’t showy, but their little whispers and subtle cues showed they knew and paid attention to each other. They were a pleasure to photograph. I love doing engagement photos in nature. In the middle of this session, the wind kicked up and a storm whipped through. You can see the dust and wind in some of the ones by the lake. But they were willing to keep going, so I kept photographing. So proud of these stunning images!

I love doing engagement photography for cute couples. And the thing about my idea of a cute couple is that you don’t have to be particularly attractive, young, or thin in order to be a cute couple. To be a cute couple, you have to be in love. You look at each other with that little mix of adoration and let everything else (including my presence) slip away. Be willing to look stupid and try funny things because some lady with a camera told you to. Giggle, tickle, and be ready to tell your significant other what they mean.
