Rodeo Drive Engagement Session

Rodeo Drive engagement session photos:

I met newly engaged couple, Jennifer and Jesse, after a referral from a long-time colleague of mine at Nozza Studios, Trini Leon. She was working as the wedding planner for Jennifer and Jesse’s nuptials later in the year at the luxurious Bacara Resort and Spa, and had recommended me to not only be their wedding photographer, but also capture these Rodeo Drive engagement session photos.

All of the organization and scheduling for this e-session actually happened via email and it wasn’t until we met up at Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills that I met Jennifer and Jesse face-to-face. This beautiful couple were easy-going from the get-go and by the end of the engagement session I felt like we’d known each other for years.

Rodeo Drive engagement session photos:

As most people know, Rodeo Drive is renowned for its expensive boutiques and designer shops, and the couple opted for a shoot that encapsulated this glamorous lifestyle. Jennifer wore a bright red dress and Jesse a vibrant blue suit, which gave plenty of life and color to the images.

We captured some casual shots of them window shopping and strolling arm-in-arm along Rodeo Drive, as well as some more creative images of them reflected in the shop windows and framed by the architectural features. Needless to say, they were both absolute naturals behind the camera, making these Rodeo Drive engagement session photos such a pleasure to shoot.

Downtown Los Angeles engagement session photos:

We then headed to Downtown LA for a luxury-style, urban e-session, backed by the captivating nighttime city skyline. With Jennifer and Jesse both dressed in glamorous evening wear, we utilized the beautifully-lit fountain at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion as I photographed some intimate embraces and got creative with a few silhouette shots.
