From the moment newly engaged couple, Quynh and Jonathan, came to my studio in Downtown Long Beach, we immediately connected. They are such an easy going couple with great chemistry and I was thrilled that they chose me to capture these Downtown Los Angeles engagement session photos.

Union Station engagement session photos:

Quynh and Jonathan had selected a number of locations that resonated with their personalities, starting with a vintage-styled urban setting at Los Angeles’ Union Station. While this is a busy, bustling modern metro stop, it’s also got a real retro feel to it, with some antique-style seating areas and ornate architectural features. We incorporated both settings during this e-session, staging some shots within a dramatically-lit waiting room and others amidst all the comings and goings of the modern station itself.

We then headed to Downtown Los Angeles for a more classic urban setting, with the couple posing in front of some colorful graffiti and in a green, leafy park with the iconic Los Angeles city skyline behind them. They had decided to include their much-loved Boston Terrier in these Downtown Los Angeles engagement session photos, and I loved his confused expressions in some of the shots!

While Quynh and Jonathan had changed into more casual attire for this urban e-session, they switched back into the semi-formal dress they had worn at Union Station and we finished the day at a couple of my favorite nighttime portrait locations in Downtown Los Angeles – the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion and the DWP Building. Both boast beautiful lighting and illuminated water features that gave these images a really elegant, glamorous feel.

I had so much fun getting to know Quynh and Jonathan during this Downtown Los Angeles e-session, and their energy and love really was infectious. I wish them well in planning for their upcoming wedding at Noor and look forward to reconnecting as their wedding photographer then.
