Downtown Los Angeles Engagement Session

Downtown Los Angeles engagement session photos:

I first had the pleasure of working with newly engaged couple Henna and Thomas during their e-session at the Malibu Creek State Park back in January of this year. While that had been a nature-inspired engagement session, set within whimsical grassy fields and rustic woodlands, they also wanted to have a more urban photo session. So we scheduled a part two to capture these Downtown Los Angeles engagement session photos around the Art District and the Walt Disney Concert Hall.

Downtown Los Angeles engagement session photos:

We began in the southern part of Downtown Los Angeles, exploring the graffiti walls of the Art District. The vibrant colors of the modern artwork provided a really rich backdrop and worked in perfectly with the formal attire that Henna and Thomas had chosen. I captured some intimate shots of them embracing up against the painted walls, together with some more playful images of them dancing and Henna leading Thomas through the streets.

Walt Disney Concert Hall engagement session photos:

We then headed over to one of my favorite engagement session shooting locations at the Walt Disney Concert Hall. The strong lines of the modern architecture and metallic surfaces are just so great to work with, not to mention the Downtown LA city skyline that serves as a backdrop.

It was just approaching sunset, which meant the perfect lighting conditions to capture silhouette shots, as well as illuminating the couple beautifully. We explored all corners of the Walt Disney Concert Hall and I felt like these engagement session photos we came away with captured the full creative potential of the setting.

Downtown Los Angeles engagement session photos:

I have to give a big shout out to Henna and Thomas who both had full days at work before meeting up for this engagement session. They still managed to find the energy to laugh and love, and are just such an awesome, fun-loving couple to work with. I can’t wait to capture their multi-cultural wedding celebrations in September this year, which will bring together Henna’s Pakistani heritage with Thomas’ Chinese/Vietnamese roots in what I’m sure will be an unforgettable event!
