Engagement Pictures

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.

I think I’ll start a new thing. Adventure engagement sessions. Because this was a blast, despite the unexpected high tide. It helped that S and D were troopers, despite getting almost instantly soaked. S’s gorgeous hair held up, she was fine with her dress getting waterlogged, and we came out with some gorgeous sunset engagement photos from Victoria Beach. All credit goes to these two troopers, who were happy, smiling, and unruffled despite getting hit with wave after wave.

These two are gold. When Elizabeth threw her heart into planning this engagement shoot, her excitement was contagious. I typically do a lot more romantic/natural style engagement photography, even in LA. But I always love playing with engagement pictures. We get the time and flexibility to play, versus on a wedding day, when we’re a lot more pressed for time. So, as you can probably tell, we had an absolute blast. Even with the smoke-clogged air, we came out with some of my favorite photos of my career.

From the moment I met Mary, I knew we would get along well. We went out for coffee and ended up barely talking about wedding plans at all. She has the best smile, and when I saw her and Carlos together, I instantly understood the attraction. They adore each other. On one of their dates Carlos was teaching Mary to skateboard. When she took a bad spill he forced her to go to the hospital, where she found out she had cancer. But because she came in when she did, they were able to operate on it and she was fine. So he saved her life.
