Wow, THAT was a long break for me to take from blogging! It was all due to us moving (only a 1.5 miles), but moving a family of five has definitely been a GREAT undertaking and yet SO refreshing! If you really want to spring clean your life, MOVE!

Anyway, I'm super excited to post this engagement session of Diana + Jon! We shot it at the Griffith Observatory in LA. I've shot there many times before, so I always challenge myself to come up with a whole new look for each couple, I want my couples to have images unique to them. This time we went up onto the roof of the observatory and explored with all of the white walls. I was having fun in the broad daylight shining on the white!

dj_eng_blog010.jpgAfter being at the observatory we headed down to the park area and had fun in nature!
dj_eng_blog014.jpgI couldn't choose between these three so all three of these next images are my favorite for the day!
I'm looking forward to the wedding in June up in San Francisco!

Amelia! I love this session! I've been loving the broad daylight photos too! I always thought that was supposed to be the worst lighting, but I love it now! AND YOU DIDN'T PHENOMENALLY, obviously. :) Happy to have you back up and blogging!

I really like the shoot, it's difficult not to get cheesy shots when you photograph a couple. But you've managed, I like the one from above close up on their eyes most. Emily

Great shooting , good catching of the atmosphere !! Just a question : Are the "sunstars"in some of your shots induced just by aperture, or do you also utilize sometimes one of those "Star Filters" ?
