Downtown Los Angeles engagement session photos:

Annelie and Camron found me online at the end of last year, and it was pleasure to meet them in person at my home studio last January and have them officially book me as their wedding photographer and for this Downtown Los Angeles engagement session.

They got engaged in France last Fall, with Camron popping the question while they were visiting the gorgeous 11th-century island abbey of Mont Saint-Michel. I really enjoyed capturing their love for one another throughout this afternoon e-session, with both of them absolute naturals in front of the camera.

Art District Los Angeles engagement session photos:

We began the afternoon in the colorful Art District Los Angeles to take advantage of its graffitied walls and vibrant murals. They had both opted for really classic, black attire, which allowed them to stand out against the multi-colored backdrops.

I captured intimate embraces in this grungy setting and creative portraits as the couple stood hand-in-hand outside rustic warehouses. I also grabbed a black and white of them kissing on the sidewalk and a romantic moment at a cafe when Camron lovingly kissed Annelie’s hand.

Downtown Los Angeles engagement session photos:

We then headed into the Financial District of Downtown Los Angeles to some of my favorite e-session locations. I captured Annelie and Camron embracing against the ochre-red walls of the MOCA Building and between its cascading fountain, as well as some shots incorporating the iconic white architecture of The Broad. We also took some portraits on the terrace outside the DWP Building which boasts fantastic views across the Downtown LA city skyline.

I got creative with a low-angle silhouette portrait of the couple incorporating the surrounding skyscrapers and a casual shot of Annelie admiring her ring with Camron leaning against a wall in the background. They needed no prompting from me when it came to creating chemistry, bringing a lot of love and energy to the shoot.

Vista Hermosa Park engagement session photos:

We ended the afternoon at beautiful Vista Hermosa Park to take advantage of the atmospheric light and its views across the Los Angeles city skyline. I photographed the couple embracing on the walking trail leading up the viewpoint, then captured romantic shots as they soaked up the vistas together.

They had brought a bottle of champagne and glasses with them to toast to their future, adding a touch of class and elegance to these shots. They then performed a “first dance” in the golden sunset light which I captured in a whimsical shot.

Downtown Los Angeles engagement session photos:

I had a lot of fun spending the afternoon with Annelie and Camron and getting to know them a little better during this Downtown Los Angeles engagement session. I’m looking forward to reconnecting with them in a few months when I capture their special day at the First Congregational Church of Los Angeles and Tiato in Santa Monica!
