Griffith Observatory Marriage Proposal - Francisco + Lina

I got a call this past Saturday afternoon from Francisco asking if I could capture his marriage proposal to his soon to be (and now) fiance', Lina. It was super last minute, but I told him that I was down to drive up to the Griffith Observatory, so I packed up my gear and made my way up to LA.

I had never met either of these two in person, so Francisco sent me a few photos of them so I could keep an eye out for when they arrived at the Observatory. When I spotted these two, I started to follow them in the least creepy way possible and without making it super obvious that I was there to capture their special moment. Francisco led Lina down to one of the lower decks where they could have a little bit more space to themselves. I could tell he was a bit nervous and waiting for the right moment to drop down to his knee. A few moments later, he asked Lina to spend the rest of her life with him. 

Congratulations, guys!!!!

Here's some of what we captured. 

Los Angeles Engagement Session - Ophelia + Jordan

Jordan proposed to Ophelia at the Griffith Observatory, so naturally they wanted to capture their engagement session at the Observatory. Before we ended up there, we took a little tour of downtown LA.

We started off our day at the Walt Disney Concert Hall to warm up. From there we took a stroll over to a local coffee shop since these two love their java and ended up having a some more fun at Grand Park. These two were a breeze to shoot, their love spilled onto my camera with ease. I can't wait for their wedding in a few short weeks! Until then, here's some of what we captured!
