Urban Lights Engagement Session

2:16 PM

My engagement session with Diana and Steven brought us to a few iconic spots in LA. For every couple’s first photoshoot, knowing what to do and how to ‘pose’ in front of the camera can be tough so I always start my sessions with a quick warmup to help my clients acclimate to the idea of taking tons of cute shots together. After a quick set at my favorite open trail, we visited the vintage Gilmore Gas station until dark and then it was off to the Urban Lights!
It was a particularly crowded night so while waiting for my ‘window’ to open (the ebb and flow of wandering tourists always lends itself to a very brief period of minimal foot traffic and clear backgrounds) the thought occurred to me, “Why fight the crowds…I should use them instead!” And with that, the resulting image is shown below: the combination of blurred traffic lights and pedestrian movement against my perfectly still couple. It captures, in my opinion, the essence of a downtown LA evening!
Special thanks to Grace Lin for the incredible hair and makeup. =)
