Brea High, 3rd St. Promenade, Los Angeles Engagement Photography – Annie + Henry9:45 PM
Dearest S2 blog readers, I’d like to introduce you to my friends, Annie and Henry. We visited Brea High School where they fell in love 10 years ago, Santa Monica Pier, and finished off at Staples Center with a stopover to the Nokia Theater courtyard. Annie and Henry scheduled their engagement photos to coincide with their 10 year anniversary, which is pretty rad in my opinion!
Thanks Henry and Annie for helping me knock out an amazing session! Love you lots!
Photography is all about lighting. Depending on the time of day, a location can look either awesome or terrible. For the image set below, we were at the bridge that connects third street with the beach. Growing up in LA, I’ve walked these steps probably a hundred times but never gave it much thought as a set for my couples.
To give you guys an idea of what the area looks like during the day and late at night, I’ve attached a few candid snapshots. From the looks of it, it’s pretty whatevs, but when captured at just the right time and angle, you get the rich blue skies and warm skin tones. No Photoshop here…
If you are a bride: Give your photographer plenty of time to map out the shooting schedule. Pick the best time of day and think about locations that are cool.
If you are a photographer: Find good light, not bad light. Make good decisions where to set your couple in relation to light and time of day. They will love the pix!
