DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS | LOS ANGELES, CA

isa and alex are having a destination wedding in the bride’s home country of spain this summer, but they wanted their engagement photos to reflect their life in los angeles together.

We started out near their home in Studio City at the coolest Barnes and Noble to capture the Studio City marquis in the background. Isa and Alex spend lots of time walking around this area so it was very fitting. We then went to the most quintessential of California eateries, In-N-Out Burger, where I was amazed to watch Alex inhale a 4x4 in 5 minutes flat. I’ve been wanting to shoot at In-N-Out for a long time and it did not disappoint with these two!

Then we of course had to get some palm tree lined streets with a view of the Hollywood Sign in the background before heading downtown to a rooftop overlooking The Ace Hotel and The Eastern Columbia Building. Isa really wanted to show off the variety of neighborhoods and vibes of LA, and adding the downtown LA background was an important part of that vision. She changed from her more casual LA look to a gorgeous red dress, perfectly offset by the turquoise background of the Eastern Building.

Isa and Alex are so in sync and in love and it really shows in their photos.

Enjoy this Los Angeles engagement session!

SABINO CANYON ENGAGEMENT SESSION | TUCSON, AZ

MARCI AND DEVON TRAVELED FROM NEW JERSEY TO GET MARRIED IN THE BRIDE’S HOMETOWN OF TUCSON, ARIZONA.

Two days before their wedding at The Lodge at Ventana Canyon, we ventured out to the east side of Tucson to wander around Sabino Canyon Recreation Area for a little wedding photo warm up. I highly suggest that all of my clients do engagement sessions with me for a couple of reasons: 1. It helps us get to know each other and you can get a feel for my shooting style (and learn all my moves so you’ll be a pro on your wedding day), 2. It both relieves the nerves and awkward feeling of being in front of the camera and adds excitement; suddenly your wedding starts to feel real!

Whether it’s 2 days or a year before your wedding, definitely consider an engagement session!
