When Emily and Free first contacted me about photography for their wedding, they already had the location for their engagement photos picked out – The Griffith Observatory. Usually couples who contact me need a little help picking out the location for their engagement session, but Free proposed to Emily at the observatory, so it was a no-brainer! I was very excited because even though I’d been there before, this was my first time shooting a couple at the famous Los Angeles landmark, and I’ve wanted to for a very long time.
These two have only been engaged for maybe about a month or so and they are getting married in January. For those trying to do the math, that’s a very short engagement! I’ve decided this is the way to go – they only have to deal the stress of planning a wedding for a few months and then they’re done! They get to live in wedded bliss and never have to plan another wedding again. I think many of us can definitely see the appeal in that. ;)
It was a beautiful day for an engagement session when we met last week. I was just coming down with what I would find out later was the flu, but I was having so much fun with these two that I really forgot how crappy I was feeling. That’s how you know you’ve had a successful shoot. Free is a graphic designer and is using several of the photos from this session for their wedding invitation – he even sent me the mock up already and it looks fantastic! I love, love, LOVE when couples use their engagement photos in creative ways and I can’t wait to see the printed version of the invite suite.
Here are a few of my favorites from our time spent at the observatory.
In this next one, they are standing in the same exact spot where Free proposed. Cute!
After a while Emily and Free changed into something a little more casual, after which I promptly made them roll around in the grass.
Thank you Emily and Free for a fun couple of hours! I am so looking forward to your wedding day!
