This engagement session was taken around Los Angeles at Lacy Park, Walt Disney Concert Hall and LACMA. It was another special one to me. Linda and Tom are friends of mine and it’s a little different photographing someone you know personally. Photographers out there, you probably know what I’m talking about. You’re not trying to get to know the couple during the session, because you already know them, and you can read their body language more accurately than perhaps a couple you don’t know well. Most of all, communication is naturally open between you guys so you know exactly that they want.
All in all, about 80% of the session is similar to how other GYP engagement session goes, but that 20% is like hanging out with a close friend. It’s similar to a friend visiting you at work and hanging out all day. Pretty darn cool :) What makes it even more awesome is that I get to take part in this once-in-a-lifetime experience, an honor that I never take for granted.
Thank you, Linda, for being one of the bestest friends a gal can ask for. Thank you for being the epitome of what it means to be a friend, for always choosing honesty over superficiality, and showing your strong values through action, not words. Everyone around you, us, can all agree that you are nothing short of exceptional. May you find everlasting love, happiness, and balance in this crazy world with your Prince Charming! Love you.
