Del Cerro Park engagement session photos:

My first contact with Lisa and John was via email, with the couple requesting to book me as their Los Angeles engagement session photographer. I was excited to hear the story of how they met and became engaged when we scheduled a meeting at my studio in Downtown Long Beach, and right from the outset I knew that working with them on these Del Cerro Park engagement session photos was going to be a lot of fun.

Union Station engagement session photos:

We actually began the day at Union Station in Los Angeles where the couple had planned a vintage-style e-session incorporating some eclectic outfits and the retro atmosphere of the station. From the escalators to the reflective surfaces and even the Traxx restaurant, there were so many great features to work with. I particularly liked the natural light that was falling on some antique-style chairs and used it to illuminate the couple perfectly!

Downtown Los Angeles engagement session photos:

After photographing both upstairs and underground at Union Station, we headed into Downtown Los Angeles for a more urban setting, using the DWP building as a backdrop. Here we captured some close up black and white portraits and silhouette shots, utilizing the city skyline to frame the couple.

Del Cerro Park engagement session photos:

Our final destination of the day was Del Cerro Park in Rancho Palos Verdes, a good hour’s drive from Downtown LA with the traffic. We wanted to take advantage of the atmospheric sunset lighting in its beautiful natural surrounds, with the park boasting breathtaking views across the Pacific Ocean.

I have to say that it was actually quite windy and a little bit chilly as we took a range of wide angle shots and up close portraits. But Lisa and John were such troopers (and even used the weather to their advantage with some genuinely intimate and warming embraces!) and I thought that these Del Cerro Park engagement session photos were infused with their undeniable love for one another.
