Los Angeles Observatory Engagement : Meg + Tim

Photography

With many thanks to UPS, they’re getting married. It all started with tickets that got lost in transit. While she insists she wasn’t a groupie, Tim proffers an askance look to betray insider information. Meg was in college and became smitten with Big City Rock, a band in Los Angeles. She and a friend bought tickets and when they didn’t arrive on time for the show that night, Meg emailed the band’s web master. In a short email response, she was informed her name was placed on The List (because, really, cool kids are always on The List) and to enjoy the show. The email was signed from Tim. Later that night at the concert, Meg looked for Tim to thank him in person. When she asked where she could find him, she was pointed to the bassist on the stage.

The oh-so-very cute bassist. Yes, the web master and the bassist were one, and his name was Tim. And he was oh-so-very cute. Meg approached him after the show to thank him for his help and in a single brief movement, Meg lost her heart. In the crowded venue, Tim placed his hand on the small of her back and pulled her in close to hear her words. Only the words didn’t matter. Tickets. Web master. Bassist? Thanks.

Seven years later, Tim and Meg have grown together and fallen in love. They’re getting married this November and they have UPS to thank for their chance meeting. But as fate knows, the tickets were never supposed to arrive. I was honored to shoot their 7th dating anniversary/engagement session in Silverlake last week and here are a few of my favorite photos…

Meg is the type of girl who loves to plan. She’s getting married this November, but organized the engagement shoot to coincide with her and Tim’s 7th dating anniversary. She decorated for the event and I got to take a Crumbs cupcake home at the end of the shoot! 😉

The ever fab, Meg…

This girl? She’s a party animal.

Remember oh-so-cute Tim? Well, here he is!

Rawr.

We walked around their old neighborhood of Silverlake for more engagement photos and had a little fun in the streets…

Within a two-block radius, there was a ton of spaces to shoot…that’s the thing I love about Los Angeles…the ever presence of urban appeal!

I love me some pretty light….

On our way back to the house, Meg took of her shoes because, well, fashion sometimes kills your feet. This was spray-painted on the sidewalk and it was quite appropriate…

After a quick change, we made our way to the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles…

A special thanks goes to Jaimi Brooks of Fiore Beauty for a lovely job on Meg’s hair and makeup!

The cool thing about shooting engagement photos at the Griffith Observatory is that there are just beautiful pockets of light and nooks of prettiness everywhere…Meg just happens to make things even more delightful…

I’ll end with this photo because, Meg, you look diviiiiine. F’real.
