So this past Saturday my wife got a call from Stephanie checking to see if I was available to photograph their engagement session next weekend... given that I had prior obligations scheduled, I respectfully declined.. then few seconds later, Stephanie goes "ok.. so how about tomorrow?" So with that, THANKS Stephanie and Brain for taking away my Sunday nap time! Just kidding :)
Last second call for an engagement session is sort of an adrenaline rush, there's no real time to prep, just pack the available gears and improvise. For Stephanie & Brian's session, the colors of the sunset proves that we picked a great day for a shoot... nap time well sacrificed :) Congrats Stephanie and Brian!
Griffith Observatory has always been one of my favorite spot in LA ever since jr. high. My buddies and I always tend to come over here to relax and hang out, feeling like we're on top of the world. During one of my email conversations with Trinh, she mentioned that this was one of the place that Ernesto had took her on a date! By all means I can't blame Ernesto, looking below you have an amazing view of Los Angeles, looking across the horizon you see the infamous Hollywood sign, and if you're looking for stars they have these ginormous telescopes within to look above towards the sky. Anyhow, before I digress, we had an awesome time shooting along the hiking trails and all over the Observatory. Trinh & Ernesto were such troopers hiking up the trails, fighting the tourist crowds, and jumping on top the ledges.
