Engagement: April + Josh, Downtown Los Angeles

downton los angeles business district engagement session

This year we have gotten to a very good start thanks to the support from you all.  We have finally getting a little breather with the weather less the desirable lately in LA, and I’m back on blogging again! yay!  In the coming weeks we’re going to roll off new slideshow options and we have also made some significant changes to how we compress our files and the site should load a little bit faster from this point on.

Without further ado, I want to share with you an engagement session we did a little while back in downtown LA near the business district.  We originally wanted to shoot at the Grand Central Market, and then move on to a nearby public park in front of the public library.  Unfortunately, (or fortunately), we were stopped at both places and they wouldn’t allow professional photography.  Bummer, so instead we decided to visit the nearby Bradbury Building, and we shot the entire session in the surrounding business district.  I’m in love with the results, and that gives me an urge to just try out to new locations.

It was actually a very cold day and the sun was hiding most of the session, and suddenly we got a glimpse of beautiful ray of sunlight through the buildings and turned the cityscape and sidewalk into amazingness. 

and we took one last picture in front of the cityscape before the buildings blocked off the sun before sunset

I look forward to your wedding in August!! =)
