Los Angeles Department of Water and Power Engagement | Rika and Mike
We met up with Rika and Mike at the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power for their engagement session. Rika had reached out to me earlier and said that they wanted a certain backdrop. I had seen these types of photos around with that background but I didn’t know exactly where it was. Which was actually a lot of fun. I love finding new locations to shoot! Luckily one of our good photographer friends knew exactly where it was and within minutes we knew exactly where it was. That’s why I always say it’s great to have a solid network of friends where everyone helps one another.
We started with Rika and Mike at the Walt Disney Concert Hall: one of our favorite spots in Los Angeles. The architecture and colors look amazing and Rika and Mike look perfect for the scene.The dress that Rika was wearing played perfectly with the metallic greenish tones in the background and Mike looked very elegant in his black suit. We walked around and played with different backgrounds and lighting. Rika and Mike were super easy to shoot with and since we had already done their first shoot at the beach, their posing was already down.
After shooting at Walt Disney Concert Hall we headed over to the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power. We knew that for this scene we wanted the LA lights in the background so we shot at Walt Disney Concert Hall until it got dark. Luckily there was nearly no one at the next location and so we were able to get exactly what we needed. We had an amazing time with Rika and Mike and genuinely can not wait to be there on their big day!
