Beatriz & Ryan: Downtown Los Angeles Engagement Session

Ryan is from the New York City area, Beatriz is from the Los Angeles area. East meets west. Yankees vs. Dodgers. And they’re still apart during their engagement but distance isn’t a factor when there’s a love that transcends miles. For for their engagement session, her home city of Los Angeles made the perfect backdrop to tell their story.

I’ve known Beatriz for quite a few years and it makes me feel old to say that she was in the girls Sunday school class that I taught when she was in high school. Fast forward her high school graduation, her college days, her starting to teach, and now her planning her wedding and here we are! I’m so happy she’s met a kind and striking young man who loves her dearly and flies out out whenever he can to visit her and her family. So you can imagine how thrilled I was when she contacted me to photograph her engagement and her wedding! Of course, YES was my answer!

You’ll noticed that the first half of her session is in a popular park near Downtown Los Angeles where the greens are as green as they can be with the recent rain we’ve had! And thank God for that! Her beautiful white dress was the perfect thing to wear too. After that, we made our way to the Walt Disney Concert Hall and then to Downtown Los Angeles to finish up with the skyline in the background. I always give my brides a list of options of pretty locations for their engagement session and I’m so glad she choose these ones! (I’m also delighted to shoot at new locations my couples suggest as well!) So for now, I hope you enjoy this preview of Ryan and Beatriz’s Downtown Los Angeles engagement session:
