Melissa & Ira are the most adorable couple. They’re sweet and always so happy… such great smiles on these two! They seem to relax so nicely in to one another, so gently. Their engagement session is one of my favorites of this year!
Melissa & Ira really thought about their engagement session. They thought a lot about the locations and how it could be a really great representation of the two of them. They wanted to think a little bit outside of the box and settled on one of my absolute favorite restaurants, Bottega Louie, to begin our day. I am endlessly inspired by the interiors here and die for their portobello fries and the trenne pasta. I don’t think I’ve ever had anything else to eat here because those are so delicious and I can’t wasting a visit on something that might be slightly less amazing. When they told me it was one of their favorites, I knew it would be perfect for shooting!
Then, we headed over to Descanso Gardens. I haven’t been here in years, but Melissa & Ira were looking for a Japanese Garden as they got engaged in Japan last year. The gardens are incredibly beautiful and were the perfect balance to the marble interiors of Bottega Louie. I couldn’t be happier with this session!
Melissa & Ira – It was such a pleasure and, if possible, I am even more looking forward to your wedding next year! You two were so wonderful to shoot and made my job so easy. Thank you! Enjoy the images!
