I’m so excited to write my first blog post and share with you two of my favorite people! I met Elizabeth in grad school and we’ve been besties ever since. (yup, I just said “besties”…eww) She is one of those people that makes me feel happy just by being in her presence. Elizabeth and Miguel’s personalities balance each other out so well and they each bring out the best in each other. They actually didn’t start dating until a few years after they met! Luckily Miguel knows how to go after what he wants. :) I’m honored to have photographed their engagement session and to be a part of their wedding this summer.
We started with a few pictures at their downtown condo:
As soon as we started shooting, we made a new friend: (I’m a sucker for cute dogs!)
Liz and Miguel both claim that the camera doesn’t like them, but I have plenty of evidence that proves them wrong. They both relaxed and warmed up to the camera pretty quickly. LOVE these:
Then we headed to the Walt Disney Concert Hall before the sun went down. Liz and Miguel know I’m all about finding beautiful light, and they helped me pick out some great locations.
We worked up an appetite, so then we headed for some dinner. Walking along, we suddenly noticed the street was full of snow. Yup, that’s right, snow. In L.A. In one of the hottest months of the year.
Obviously, Hollywood must have something to do with it :)
Turns out we were in the middle of a filming for Batman, which is apparently taking place in a winter wonderland. We saw some crazy batmobiles driving down the road, and then the film crew actually made us duck behind some bushes so we wouldnt be in the film! I have photographic evidence of this, but it’s not so pretty. :)
And here’s one final image for you. I had a seriously difficult time narrowing down the pictures for this post, so a few more may pop up later! Thanks Eliz and Migz! love you!
