Los Angeles Engagement : Laura + Carlos

Photography

They met at an Italian restaurant. Not just any Italian restaurant, but Laura’s family Italian restaurant. Carlos and Laura worked at the restaurant and they quickly became friends. He made her laugh, and when Laura went through a tough time, Carlos was there for her at every turn in the road. Laura invited him for coffee one night, and their friendship morphed into something they didn’t expect. A love affair.

Carlos and Laura have bonded through the years and they attribute their beautiful relationship to their love the small things they admire. Carlos is patient, sweet, and loves when people laugh hard…Laura is kind, driven, and caring. At the center of their relationship is their passion for God and they’ve built their lives in such a way to share their love in small, poignant pieces.

They’re marrying in May at Hummingbird Nest Ranch and I’m super excited to shoot there again as it’s such a gorgeous venue. We met at Balboa Park in Los Angeles for engagement pictures and when Laura planned a vintage theme shoot, I was thrilled. Here are a few favorites from the day…

Laura, you’re fabulous. No, really, you are.

The light at Balboa Park was just amazing last week and I was in love…

I was beyond thrilled when Laura and Carlos arranged for a vintage car for the engagement photos…
