Happy Thursday everyone! This past weekend, I was given the honor and privilege to photograph the engagement session of good friends Michelle and Shannon for their upcoming wedding in less than two weeks! Yup, less than two weeks from now, we’ll be having even more fun photographing their big day! But before that, we were able to sit back, relax a bit, take our time, and photograph at the historic Pico House building in downtown Los Angeles, by Olvera Street. The Pico house itself has been around for over 100+ years and it was so cool to be able to photograph there, in the essentially empty building. We were given special permission to use the building’s inner courtyard for our shoot, and it turned out to be a fantastic session. I was LITERALLY giddy the entire time! Plus, Michelle and Shannon are two of the cutest people you’ll ever meet, and boy can that Michelle rock a photo session! Seriously! Love it when my brides to be are just so free and comfortable in front of a camera. Shannon was a rock star too, but let’s face it, the women tend to rock more than the men. Just saying!
The surrounding areas next to the Pico House are also very picturesque as well, and afterwards, we took a few photos in front of the Chinese American Museum (CAM). Shannon and Michelle have an affiliation with the museum, and because of them, we were able to photograph at the Pico House, so why not photograph the CAM as well? Plus, the brick building and the light we were getting were spectacular!
I had so much fun on this shoot, and want to thank Michelle and Shannon for being such great models for the day. Loved what they did! A big thanks to CAM and Pico House as well for letting us photograph in and around the building. What a beautiful venue!
And now, here is a sampling of our work from Saturday. Enjoy!
Love this series!
Their wedding day shoes are going to rock even harder than these! So dapper though!
