Mutual friends introduced these two nearly a decade ago here in Seattle. They became long distance friends while Ha-Vi finished up school in Ohio. One day, after Ha-Vi moved to Los Angeles a couple years after their first meeting, she was driving down the street and was surprised to spot a familiar face… It was Freddie, who had apparently moved to L.A. around the same time. (Say what?!) They became good friends after that, and the rest is history.
We shot their engagement session in Los Angeles, the city where their relationship grew the most. I left it to them to choose locations for our shoot and they nailed it! We shot near the LA River, on a palm-tree lined street, and we even took a drive up to a quiet observatory overlooking the whole city just as the lights below started to shimmer. We watched the day fade away from way up high, one of my favorite things to do in any city.
Shooting in LA was a treat; California light is something special. Thanks for the adventure, guys!
