Becky & Ben's Engagement
Becky and Ben wanted a classic urban theme for their portraits, so we decided to take their engagement photos at Union Station in Los Angeles. Seeing the relationship between two high school sweethearts come to fruition is quite an accomplishment, and the strength of their bond is evident in the way they interact with each other - so playful and a joy to photograph. We headed over right before sunset for that nice, beautiful light, which led to cool lighting and shadows (I love shadows, can you tell?) We waited patiently on the platforms for trains to come and go and were fortunate enough to catch two trains for some nice motion in the background. The final results were quite pleasing, even bringing Becky to tears! This is probably the most rewarding aspect of working with couples. We look forward to photographing their wedding in November for some more truly epic photos!
