virginia & sinh: los angeles engagement

“look of love”
I had an amazing time with Virginia & Sinh as we hit up some of Los Angeles’ most picturesque spots. Little did we know that we had picked to have our shoot the same day as this year’s winter solstice. What is a winter solstice you ask? Well, a winter solstice occurs exactly when the earth’s axial tilt is farthest away from the sun. And yes I looked up that definition on wikipedia. It marks the first day of winter and occurs on the shortest day with the longest night. And yes I looked that up too. The sky was incredible that evening and we could not have picked a more perfect day to visit the Griffith Observatory. Besides the breathtaking scenery, there is one particular moment that I remember so vividly from our shoot. As we stood on top of the Observatory, in awe of the gorgeous, amber sky, Virginia turned to Sinh and said in the cutest way possible, “is this what love looks like?” This made me smile. After spending just a few hours with them, I wanted to turn the camera around, show them what I had captured behind the lens and say “no guys, this is what love looks like”. So folks, please enjoy a little peek into what Virginia & Sinh’s love looks like:

We started off at one of my favorite areas of Los Angeles, Old Town Pasadena:

Next we moved on to one of my other favorite spots in Los Angeles – the incredible Griffith Observatory. Virginia & Sinh both play musical instruments (and both are convinced they inspired the other:)) so Virginia brought along her ukulele and Sinh brought along his guitar for our shoot. Aren’t they SO cute?!
