Los Angeles is known for many things, one of them being its lack of seasons. Though I appreciate the current rainfall we’re getting, it is usually bright and sunny like it was during Katherine and Patrick’s Angeles Crest Engagement Lifestyle Session! Throughout these sessions, Connie & I have been blessed with the opportunity to spend quality time with Katherine and Patrick, learning all about their story and their passions. We loved learning about how God brought them together during Katherine’s undergraduate years and how they are using their gift of medicine to serve others. Above all, we LOVE how open they were to do anything for the shot!
We finished off their Engagement Lifestyle Session by going up the Angeles Crest Highway to get some intimate portraits done as the sun began to set. There was one area in particular that caught my eye, but was incredibly risky to get to. To simply put it, I ask them if they were willing to go over the guardrail, walk along a narrow and rigid path that would eventually lead to the “perfect spot”. Though difficult to get to, Katherine and Patrick got to the spot and we were able to finish their portrait session by creating an amazing photograph. But the most heartwarming sight for me came afterwards. When they returned safely to the car, Katherine threw her arms around Patrick and gave him one of the most emotional hugs I’ve ever seen. I remember hearing Patrick constantly encouraging Katherine when she was a bit nervous as she made her way across this narrow mountain path, telling her she was doing great and to keep it up! I’m touched to see the kind of gentleman God has put into Katherine’s life and I am excited to document their wedding day next year in March.
Without further ado, I am proud to present to you Katherine & Patrick’s intimate Old Town Pasadena and Angeles National Forest Engagement Lifestyle Session. Enjoy!
