Saho & Cliff Engagement | Harbor City, CA

Cliff is an old family friend that I met back when I was in the 9th grade! Over the years (too many to mention) we have ran into each other time and time again.  Our thing was to always sneak up on the other around Downtown LA and to try to scare the hell out of each other. Just last year I did the same to him, but unbeknownst to me he was in the company of his fiancé and her family that were visiting from Japan!!! We all quickly laughed it off and that is how I met Saho. Once she found out that I was a photographer she reached out to me to shoot their engagement and upcoming wedding.

For their engagement session I decided that we could meet up at the newly redone Ken Malloy Harbor Park in Harbor City. I love shooting on overcast days because the sky acts as one big softbox and it makes the skintones and colors pop. But no, there was none of that. The sun was out high and bright that day so I had to be mindful of the harsh shadows cast on the walking trails. 

This was the first time that these two had pictures taking of them so with a little bit of direction, we were able to get some pretty nice shots among the cascading trees and wild grasses. Engagement shoots are such a great way to understand how the couple interacts with each other in front of the camera. I can pick up on cues that I know will work well when I shoot their wedding.  In all, they were super happy with their engagement session and so was I.
