Downtown Los Angeles Engagement - N+F

I love Downtown Los Angeles ~ to a little girl growing up in the San Fernando Valley in the 70's and 80's it's always had this amazing raw energy. Los Angeles is an amazing hive of activity, full of historic buildings, great places to eat or see a Laker Game.... In my world full of cars to and from everywhere, it was in Downtown where pedestrians ruled the streets...they still do. Downtown has so many amazing locations to explore - I could shoot 100 engagement shoots and still never shoot in the same location! The Disney Concert Hall, Union Station and the 4th Street Bridge were the urban backdrops for Nadia and Fabio's engagement shoot....and can I tell fit them perfectly.

Originally from Italy, Nadia trained as a ballerina and now edits documentary films. Her graceful movements, honed by years of ballet, brought a softness to our photos that I could never imagine and shooting her was like a choreographed event and her visual nature made it incredibly easy to collaborate on her shoot. Fabio, also from Italy, worked as an agent for photographers in Milan. Never one to enjoy having his photo taken more of a behind-the-scenes guy, Fabio truly shined in our photo shoot because he's just that cool. Seriously. He's amazingly real...they both are....and their chemistry is off the charts!

Here is one of my all time favorite engagement photos I've ever taken...we are at the Disney Concert Hall in Downtown.

I am so very excited about shooting their upcoming wedding at a historical Hollywood Home hidden in the hills with amazing views from Downtown L.A. to the ocean. I mean really - how crazy cool are these two? The wedding is going to be awesome! Enjoy the photos!
