Darlene + Jerrold were great to photograph! They had a good amount of chemistry, which always helps while we're shooting. We met up with them at the Disney Concert Hall in Downtown LA, we had shot at this location before so we were determined to find a new approach. This is basically our mindset every time we walk into a new photo sitting, "how can we make this session unique to this couple?". I think we found what we were looking for and found an entirely different angle.








Love this random shot of the clouds Justin took.

We looked around and found an amazing view of the Disney Concert Hall on top of a nearby parking garage.



Darlene + Jerrold specifically wanted some photos with graffiti artwork so we went on a mission to find some murals. After much driving around we lucked out in the art district!

Last, but CERTAINLY not least, my favorite shot of the day!!! Graffiti and all!!!!
Darlene + Jerrold will marry in May, I'm definitely looking forward to it!

The shot of them walking from behind is absolutely killer - as is your off camera lighting shots. Fantastic shoot!

Amelia, I know you have no idea who I am but since I blog stalk you regularly I had to let you know how incredible of an artist I think you are!!! You could pretty much take any single person, couple or family and turn them into an amazing peice of artwork and make it look effortless! I really admire your work, your such an inspiration and I have miles to go!!! Plus, I love that your a mom too :)!

Amelia! I love you and your art!! When my fiance and I were searching for a photographer, we wanted a warm, talented person to trust to capture our wedding day and give us images we could hang as art pieces in our new home - you were the perfect fit! After our e-session together - we are convinced that only a beautiful person like you could produce such beautiful images! You rocked this session, as usual. Darlene and Jerrold and SUPER hot and lucky! ;)

wondering if the comment by Betty was serious.....did she really think that you accidentally took the image, overlooked the mistake, processed the image, resized it for your blog and then posted it? .....really? I think it looks cool. :)
