When searching for a location to photograph Patricia + Art for their engagement session, Justin reminded me of the awesome colors we had seen a few weeks prior in Downtown Silver Lake. We decided to go there and we seriously had so much color to work with...I loved it!!! It was also helpful that Patricia + Art were great subjects to have in front of our camera, super photogenic and ultra fun to work with!paeng001.jpg


I know that this counts as two photos, but together they make for my favorite "diptych" of the day!


On the side of the road against this amazing teal building we saw this old school yellow bug bus...we had to take advantage of the situation.


Where's Waldo????


I literally saw this writing on a metal bar right next to where we were shooting, thought it would help tell the story a little better:)






Sun-glare and twiggy trees equals I'm in love!


Lastly, a shot of the city over Echo Park.

My favorite part of this shoot is the random little kid standing in the window of the teal building! Re-dick-u-lous!! But seriously, I love the way you pull out the beauty in your surroundings.

Wow. Your shots through the bus window are super inspiring! I really dig when you juxtapose a portrait image with another cool element, like the branches shot...your posts are always so stylish and well thought-out, not just a list of cool images. nice :)

long-time follower, first-time commenter here :) i just adore the way you allow these couples the freedom to star in their own "movie"--often your shots remind me of film stills or ad promo shots...which are wonderful, because each couple deserves that break from their life and a little spotlight to celebrate their love.

I'm totally writing this on your computer, in your office, at your house. Is this a first? Neither of you are in site, only voices from the bedroom saying "Roger...we'll be out in a minute.". Don't worry, I'll wait for you, actually I think your driving, so that's good. That's means I won't leave without you. As for this post, it makes me want a VW bus again. Doesn't everyone at one time want a VW bus? Awesome and amazing are you two.
