It was one of most perfect days…75 degrees and not a cloud in the sky. On a recent trip to Los Angeles, I had the opportunity to connect with Samantha and Jamar. They have been together for 10 years and are currently planning their wedding celebration in Boston next summer.
Originally they didn’t plan to take any engagement photos, but after I spoke to her and she found out I was coming to the city, she was excited to have official engagement photos. We started out on Mulholland Drive. The view from the lookout point was breathtaking, only enhanced by this amazing couple looking out into the horizon at their new future together. Our second stop was a beautiful neighborhood, close to Beverly Hills. The hedges and the majestic palm trees were the perfect backdrop for their shoot. We literally stopped traffic to get these photos. People passing by wanted to know if they were celebrities. A self professed silly couple; their smiles and laughter showed the love they had for each other and how happy they are to be spending their lives together. Our final stop was a park near Rodeo Drive, they changed into casual attire and I let them do what comes naturally and on the steps I saw a serious side of them that I hadn’t seen and it made for some beautifully romantic pictures. But we couldn’t end on a serious note we had to add a last bit of silly with a running jump on his back…trust me the outtakes were hilarious!!!!
Here are some of the images from our afternoon together.
