Downtown Los Angeles
It was a beautiful summer afternoon when Wilson and I photographed Jessica and Michael’s engagement session in Downtown Los Angeles. Since these two live in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles, it is only fitting to host their engagement photography session here. We started off their engagement session in their cozy apartment even when they were getting ready for the photo shoot. The subtle details before the actual shoot made their story a bit more complete. We ran around from the heart of Downtown LA, to the public park nearby, Los Angeles Union Station, Chinatown, Little Tokyo, and wrapped up their engagement photo session at beautiful Hotel Figueroa. This may seem like a lot of locations, but luckily everything was in Downtown LA and was only a few minutes driving distance between each location. The most challenging part was finding parking!
Jessica and Michael wanted something more edgy and a bit of spice in their engagement photos. These two were not traditional at all and wanted their photos to reflect how exciting and fun they are, and I must agree they are definitely interesting characters. Michael requested that his favorite Jeep was to be involved during their edgy engagement photo session; why not, right?! After we left their apartment, we parked his Jeep on a dirt path and lit up our strobes for some really sweet photos! After we wrapped up the edgy engagement photos with their Jeep, Jessica changed into an amazing traditional Chinese dress for our next location at Los Angeles Union Station. I must admit, the choice of her outfit and the era of LA Union Station matched perfectly! Since she was in her beautiful outfit, we chose to add a few extra edgy engagement photos in Chinatown to complete their outfits. Before we concluded the night, these two changed into a more elegant gown and wrapped up our edgy engagement photo session at Hotel Figueroa with some more classic black and white photos.
I hope you all enjoyed their amazing engagement photo session here in Los Angeles. Keep posted and wait for their elegant destination wedding photos from Four Seasons in Santa Barbara!
