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. 

Griffith Observatory Engagement - Laura + Sonny

Winter in Southern California isn't too bad.  I mean, where else can you shoot an engagement session in 70 degree weather in December?  Laura and Sonny's sesh at the Griffith Observatory went fabulously!  Perfect weather, awesome couple, and a beautiful location...we couldn't go wrong!

There's just something special about shooting in the hills and for my money's worth, I think there aren't too many better places to watch a sunset....and of course, capture these love bird's love for one another.

Here's some highlights of what we got!  Enjoy!
