This gallery of engagement photography showcases some of the couples that we've had the honor of capturing. There are dozens of interesting locations to shoot your engagement session. In Southern California we have such geographic riches – beaches, mountains, deserts, lakes, hiking trails, romantic cityscapes, quaint downtowns and so much more! The photos in this gallery feature gorgeous locations. To name a few, the famous Griffith Observatory in Los Feliz which has been featured in many Hollywood movies. It is a popular location for engagement photos with its art deco design and panoramic views of Los Angeles. The historic Pasadena City Hall built nearly 100 years ago boasts Spanish Colonial design, with a lovely patio, terra-cotta tiles, decorative fountain and spiral staircases. It's so romantic lit up at night. Some images feature stunning city views from the famous Mulholland Pass, popular with bikers. The Santa Monica Pier offers varied backdrops ranging from an arcade, crashing waves and the tranquil underside of the pier. If you like trains, Travel Town at Griffith Park is the place to be with stationed trains, some of which can be entered for interior shots. For the active couple, hiking trails at the scenic Malibu Canyons are the fun. For an elegant look with modern architecture, the Walt Disney Concert Hall is the best fit, plus there are many scenic areas within a short walking radius. We shoot at destination locations as well such as Denver, Maui, Santa Barbara, Spain, Florida, New York and Cozumel.
You’ll preview many aspects of an engagement shoot, including romantic sunset portraits, couples laughing together, and elegant night portraits. We take a storytelling approach to capture a variety of moments during an engagement session. We capture a mix of styled and artistic portraits complimented with perfectly timed candid moments.
YOUR ENGAGEMENT SESSION
Our goal for your engagement session is to capture your dynamic as a couple and tidbits of your individual personalities. What brings you together? It may be as subtle as a stolen glance or a shy smile. Whatever your essence is a a couple, we want to capture it.
To achieve that we'll have a consultation prior to your shoot. It’s like the making of a movie. We direct and you are the actors. We walk you through the logistics of finding the perfect locations that fit your style. Perhaps it’s a café where you had your first date or you want to feel like a movie star in a “set” like an airplane hangar or sports venue. We’ll help you plan the styling of your wardrobe and accessories to create the perfect mood matching each location. And of course we’ll plan the best time of day for the most optimal and flattering light. We'll spend several hours at your shoot and aim to use two or three locations within a nearby radius. The "look" and mood of the photos can be achieved by using various locations and wardrobe changes.
