Desiree & Gabriel: Griffith Observatory Engagement

Los Angeles Engagement

It was a beautiful day at the Griffith Observatory for Desiree & Gabriel’s engagement session, a little windy now and again but not too bad. I love exploring around the observatory to find new spots to take photographs and we found several little areas we liked. One of my favorite things about Desiree & Gabriel is their kindness. I can’t quite put my finger on it but they are just the nicest people ever! They have a beautiful love and just fall into each other so naturally. During their session anytime I mentioned giving a little kiss for the picture Gabriel was right on it, didn’t have to tell him twice. Oh, and I love their style! I might just have to go get me a pair of the booties that Desiree wore with her second outfit. So cute!

These two actually grew up living in the same neiborhood but didn’t start dating until later in life. Desiree had actually moved away but she still came back to visit her friends and because they had some mutual friends they ended up starting to talk to each other a little more. Their wedding is set for June of this year and I can’t wait to capture their lovely day! Congrats Desiree & Gabriel, you guys are such a beautiful and sweet couple!

Engaged: Jessica & Jimmy

I first met Jessica & Jimmy back in May for their wedding photography consultation and from the beginning they were super easy to get along with. They are both hard workers and Jessica owns a local dance studio named Turning Pointe Dance Academy. It may sound cliche but they are just down to earth people and a sweet couple to be around.

They picked the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles, CA as their engagement session location and I was super excited about shooting there. It was quite the hike and the place was packed but we had a great time! Congrats to you two! I am so excited about your wedding next year at the Hellenic Center!!
