We met up with Jeremy and Jessica at Union Station in Downtown Los Angeles. We knew there was a possibility of rain, but we decided to take our chances and risk the rain for some amazing photos. As soon as we arrived, it poured down rain with some crazy high winds, but neither of us were discouraged. Luckily for us, they too saw an opportunity for an awesome session. They had no problem going out in to the rain and enjoy themselves. It turned out to be such a great shoot. The rain let off, and the rest of the session was all sunshine and clouds as we strolled around the Arts District in Los Angeles capturing these two enjoy each other, laughing, hugging, kissing and of course looking forward to their big day!
Patrick and Melinda are one of the coolest couples we've ever had the pleasure of working with! When we first met up with them we hit it off, they are so much fun to be around and have easily become great friends! For their engagement session we walked around Downtown Pasadena in this cute little area with little shops and bistros. We met up at Camilo's California Bistro where they have shared many dates. We had the whole restaurant to ourselves, so it was fun to recreate some of their dates and watch them enjoy themselves and play around. They really are such a great couple to be around, and we cannot wait to spend the day at USC for their big day!
With their wedding right around the corner, I wanted to share Sam and Greg's awesome engagement session! These two were so great to hangout with! I won't mention how much offroading or hiking we did to get to this spot, but they really are amazing for letting me bring them here! Because of our little adventure, it made this session that much greater, and I cannot wait for their wedding this month!!!
Maria and I have been planning this photowalk for almost two months. Our first one was a great experience, we had a nice group of about 15 people, we made some new friends, took some great photos together and enjoyed the idea of getting all of these artists together to share our love for creating.
For this photowalk, we wanted everyone to have a really great experience, we planned it at the beach, we were able to put together a couple of prizes for a giveaway towards the end of the event. And thanks to IE Photo Rentals, we were able to really spread the word about the photowalk and we had 30+ people show up!
What Maria did not know that besides planning the photowalk, I was also planning something special. Maria and I have been photographing engagements, weddings and family photos for over a year together now, and nothing has brought me more joy than being able to work professionally and creatively together with someone who shares the same passion for photography as I do, and this girl happens to be my girlfriend! I've known for a long time now that I want to spend the rest of my life with her, and I wanted to do something really special that combined all our friends and family and the thing we love most. So what better proposal, than at a photowalk.
The turnout for the photowalk was amazing, we had a huge group of photographers, everyone got to meet each other, we all took photos and prizes were won! I gathered everyone at the end for a nice group photo. On the last photo I sent Maria over to the camera to take the last photo, and when she turned around she had no idea what she was in for...
Thank you to everyone who help make this happen! I am so blessed to be surrounded by so many great people. I hope everyone had a great time at the photowalk, we really do believe in community first and cannot wait to host many more!
