Tonight I had the pleasure of photographing Jess and Steven's engagement shoot. They live in downtown LA so I was really excited to go exploring with them! They knew all the good spots nearby. First, we went to Elysian Park. They chose this spot because when they moved into their first apartment together they would hike the awesome trails! The park was extremely quiet so we practically had all the trails and scenery to ourselves! We hiked all the way to the top and awaiting us was a phenomenal view of LA. After we did some exploring, we went back down and continued our shoot at the John Ferraro Building. Again, gorgeous LA views and perfect for sunset! Not only is it a great spot for city views but this particular building was used in the movie Inception. Steven is a total movie junkie which made this spot even more awesome! These two are so easy going, especially in front of the camera! It was easy to tell that they have a lot of laid back fun together. We had a great time shooting and I'm so excited to photograph their San Diego wedding this March!
