Downtown Los Angeles Engagement

        {Downtown Los Angeles Engagement}

        I met Carrie when she was a bridesmaid for my friend Joanna’s wedding last year. I was thrilled when Carrie contacted me to photograph her wedding next year! Now Joanna will be matron of honor for Carrie’s wedding, which I know she will be great at! Carrie and Alex chose downtown Los Angeles for their engagement photos because they both enjoy going there to see theatre and concerts — something Carrie’s loved doing her whole life. I can’t wait for their wedding at the gorgeous Bel Air Bay Club next year. Here’s a little snippet from Carrie about how she met Alex…

        How about we… go eat gelato?  That was the date I had posted on  I figured anyone who replied and knew the difference between gelato and ice cream would be either a foodie or a traveler — instantly a cool person to hang out with for an hour.  Alex says he responded to my date because he was looking for a good gelato shop and he thought I was pretty.

        On our first date, I learned that Alex was well-traveled and appreciated good food (except strawberries).  That date led to another at a BBQ place, and another at LACMA, and, pretty soon, I couldn’t remember a time when Alex wasn’t around.  We both said it felt like we’d always known each other.  Almost 2 years after that first date, we got engaged in Santa Barbara — and when we got back to LA, we celebrated at that gelato shop.

        We will always treasure the photos from Joanna and Matt’s wedding. We know that Carrie and Alex will treasure theirs also.

        I love this shoot – it captures their joy and just makes me HAPPY…happy that my son has found such a wonderful woman, happy that this wonderful woman has found my son and brought him so much happiness. It all started with gelato – too perfect!!

        This is the sweetest comment! They were a joy to photograph! Can’t wait to photograph their wedding and meet you!

        Your work is beautiful! I am a serious photographer myself (totally amateur, but serious!!) and have shot some wonderful photos of them – but these are special. I know they are in good hands and that is just a wonderful little piece of all this that I am loving to know! Thank you!!

        Thank you Tina! That means a lot!
