They met on the Metro headed towards Downtown LA. She caught it every morning from Riverside; he’d catch it in Diamond Bar. They’d transfer at the same place and take the train to the middle of Downtown before heading to their respective offices. Eventually, they began chatting during the commute. After time there was a date, and then the rest, as they say, is history.
For Jennifer and Joe’s engagement session we returned to the area where it all started. Downtown LA is home to many beautiful structures, but by far the most impressive is the Walt Disney Concert Hall. We began our shoot there and I did a happy dance more than once when stealing glances at the back of my camera. These two were a real treat to photograph – easy going, easy to laugh and up for just about anything. A perfect combo!
Thanks for hanging out with me, Jennifer and Joe! Can’t wait for your wedding in April!
This next shot is probably my favorite from the day. I just love the way Joe and Jennifer are having a moment together, sight unseen from the people and cars passing by on the other side of the wall.
Eventually we walked to the 2nd street tunnel. I already love me some light at the edge of an underground tunnel, but I really fell in love with the juxtaposition of the gritty tile walls paired with the prettiness and refinement of Jennifer and Joe in their dressed up attire.
I wanted to ask Joe and Jennifer if they were willing to stand in the middle of the street but I didn’t want to put them on the spot and feel pressure to do so. Turns out I needn’t worry because Jennifer asked ME if they could stand in the middle of the street. Heaven!
And, of course we had to hop on the Metro for a little something different.
