LA Photography: Kristi + Josh Engagement

LA gave us quite an excitement filled day for Kristi + Josh's engagement session. They told me about the LA subway (which I hadn't heard of and not many people know about) and we decided that would be a perfect engagement shoot for them. We had no idea the crazy adventure we had in store for us that day! The interesting story of how our night ended on the subway will be coming up soon...

Thank you Josh + Kristi for an amazing, unforgettable night!

LAengagementjoshkristi0001 We started at the subway station. LAengagementjoshkristi0002 I've always wanted to do a shoot in the New York subway and I got my wish, just in LA. I couldn't have asked for a more fun couple to shoot! LAengagementjoshkristi0003

Our first stop was one of their spots, Seven Grand, a whiskey bar in downtown LA. It was closed (we were an hour early) so we shot outside. LAengagementjoshkristi0005

Our next stop was the fun little diner called 25 Degrees connected to the Roosevelt. They gave Josh and Kristi free Champagne! LAengagementjoshkristi0012 LAengagementjoshkristi0010.5

As I was shooting, I was told I needed a permit (or something) so I snuck a few more shots before we left.

This picture was a total accident and I love how it turned out. LAengagementjoshkristi0022

The light bouncing off the buildings and the motion of this sequence are what I live for. LAengagementjoshkristi0023

First we got yelled at by some man preaching, which was weird. But then a man played Johnny Cash and it made up for it. LAengagementjoshkristi0030

They walked closer to tip him and enjoy. LAengagementjoshkristi0031

Seven Grand was calling us back. Kristi and I enjoyed a "Gold Rush" (so amazing, I like Whiskey now) while Josh enjoyed his favorite Irish Whiskey Tullamore Dew. LAengagementjoshkristi0033

We got in the fountains for about five minutes before we were kicked out. But not before I got some fun pictures. LAengagementjoshkristi0037
