Engagement sessions are so much fun to do. The process of documenting and sharing a couple’s journey together is a pleasure. Our team is blessed with the most beautiful light at Los Angeles Arboretum and Botanical Garden and Pasadena for our wonderful couple – Nathan and Vanessa.
We started our session at Arboretum, embracing their love of the outdoors, and of course each other. We kept the shoot simple and prop-free but capturing the romance in it. We were lucky to have warm weather and a setting sun which gave us pockets of lights within the leaves and the trees which are vibrant and in full glory. They were both naturals in front of the camera and needed little direction from our team. We explained that we are looking for- basically for them to be themselves and we had already asked them to come armed to be affectionate with each other. No reminder needed! It was just down to me and Thet to choose our background and composition and work with the gorgeous light.
Our next snapping site was in the heritage of early downtown charm and historic alleyways with architectural accents of Pasadena. No fussy props or fancy location. Our couple was effortlessly, epically, head-over heels in love. We just capture the natural connection between Nathan and Vanessa and with such a simple back drop; this is an effortlessly romantic engagement shoot.
Every looked showed their love in their eyes – from the first time they met at downtown Fullertown until the present. Their eyes locked and just beamed at each other. It was really special. Nathan and Vanessa were super relaxed and have a lovely and fun relationship.
We are looking forward to shoot your wedding; it will be sooner than you think.
Here are few of our favorite images from our session of natural beauty of Vanessa in her smiley smile and our handsome police officer – Nathan.
One of the things, I think Thet and I loved about this job is the ability to connect with our clients. Photographing people is such a personal task, and making them feels relax and look confident in front of our camera is a challenge. We take it by heart. Just knowing that we capture the spirit of a person through images that we’ve taken makes us really happy. That’s how we keep going on and on, year after a year.
Khai and Kelly are one of those couples who instantly make the “friend” list the moment you met them. They are friendly and warmhearted. It is obvious that these two fun-loving souls are completely and deeply in love with each other. Although they are from culturally differently families; somehow their differences made up for each other’s lack, and that’s how the puzzle fit together. They’re faith, hope and love binds them together.
We had our beautiful morning session in the hybrid art form of Earl Barns Japanese Garden. Beautiful, serene, and every tree in the garden were bright. It was beautiful as sunset glow. We totally enjoy photographing couples in love. A connection is something that cannot be forced. Khai and Kelly are couples that we could connect and get along so easily. We had various locations for our engagement shoots. Our evening photo shoot in Los Angeles Chinatown has its own charm. Its colorful urban setting is a photogenic backdrop. The gorgeous session with our couple was surrounded by radiance and love.
After spending time with them this past weekend, we cannot wait to watch them become husband and wife. Thank you both for being such good and relaxed company. We are looking forward shooting your wedding day!
It is an honor from us to share real couple’s love story from all over the world. Enjoy our photos!
