This Los Angeles engagement session takes the cake for most epic photo shoot to date! And it could not have been with two cooler people! To start the bride-to-be Vanessa, has been my bestest friend since we were in the 4th grade! Sadly she moved to LA a few years ago, but it worked out for her cause that’s where she met Mike. Who is equally as nice, funny and cool as Vanessa, and I really am oh so happy these two found eachother!
The shoot basically serves as a small tour of the city of Los Angeles. We hit a total of 5 maybe even 6 different areas, with multiple locations at each location! Which means we got a ton of variety! The first spot on day one of two of our shoot was the beaches of Malibu, however we needed to make a stop in a field I saw from the car on the way there (I’m a sucker for fields with pretty light, what can I say?)
The next day we started in the afternoon and went all the way till night fall! Hitting a couple of Vanessa and Mike’s favorite LA spots. Which included the bar Ye Rustic where they met during a Chargers (her team) and Raiders (his team) game. We also hit up a favorite LA haunt of theirs The Dresden an awesome spot that has a lot of old hollywood charm, with it’s bright red booths, dark woods and low lights. In downtown LA we found some more sweet spots: The Walt Disney Concert Hall a place I’ve always wanted to shoot at, The Bradbury Building which has a gorgeous interior and has been used in many movies including a favorite of mine: 500 Days of Summer. That sounds like a lot of spots but there were still more to come! No Los Angeles shoot would be complete without my favorite place Griffith Park a spot that not matter the reason I’m in LA I have to go visit! And last but not least we went downtown to the John Ferraro Building which provides a gorgeous skyline backdrop.
So as you can see I wasn’t kidding when I said it was an epic shoot! I wouldn’t have changed anything about it, I could have kept going all over LA the next day too, so many amazing spots in that city!
