Surprisingly enough, I had never done an engagement session until Justine reached out to me for her engagement photos. As an old friend from high school, I also photographed her sister’s senior portraits! (I will get around to posting some highlights from those as well!) Although we hadn’t spoken in awhile, I feel so honored that she asked me to do this for her. I will say, considering this is my first engagement session, I am pretty proud of the end result!
We met midday at the LA Arboretum in Arcadia and I must admit, I was nervous! I never visited the location, but Justine and Joey were so full of love that my nerves eased immediately. I practically swooned when I saw the photos from the bamboo forest! The location itself seemed unreal; wild peacocks roamed the grounds unattended! Also, I love that there were different environments around the gardens. We walked through the cacti gardens, the greenhouses, the fountains, and other trails around the grounds! I could only imagine what it would be like at the peak of springtime!
Inspired by warm light and film tones, here are some highlights from Justine and Joey’s engagement photos! Which one is your favorite?
