The Day After

Trash the Dress_CT_Vivian Lin Photography_14_2986Cindy and Todd live in Atlanta, so we never got a chance to do an engagement session.  Instead, we had a blast shooting the day after their wedding.  Since they still had the house, we took full advantage of the neighboring hillsides and the pool afterwards.  I love it when my couple is game for anything!  Cindy and Todd braved the prickly meadow (I know it looks romantic, but there were sticklers everywhere) and hopped into the pool just as the sun was dipping over the horizon.  Take a look–so worth it, right?!

A Vista De Oro Wedding

1 Vista de Oro_CT_Vivian Lin Photo_477I’ve known Cindy since she was a tomboy skater-chick, with chin length hair, baggy jeans, and dark brown lipstick.  We all felt a tug in our hearts when she moved away to Atlanta, and I get all sentimental when I see this woman she’s grown into.  Still headstrong and independent, she’s met kind and thoughtful Todd.  Her sister, Connie, had asked me to be there to document the moment he proposed to her, in front of her family moments after she landed at LAX.  I remember being thrilled for this long-time friend, for having found this guy who gets how important family is to her. I remember feeling rest assured upon meeting her amazing group of gals she’s befriended out there in Atlanta when we celebrated her bachelorette party.  And then came the wedding.  Part vacation, part reunion, they gave the Atlanta guests a taste of sunny, poolside California in this hilltop mansion that once belonged to Hedda Hopper.  Cindy, a talented graphic designer, created the invitations, escort cards, and check out her modern take on the bouquet!

Young Love in Downtown LA

Downtown LA Engagement_Vivian Lin Photo_7773

When it came to choosing a location for Louriz and Miguel’s engagement session, we easily went with downtown LA.  They both worked in the jewelry district, and their relationship blossomed over shared subway rides, lunches, and walks.  It’s such an urban experience that I romanticize, so I asked them to simply take me around their spots, and that I would shoot based on their stories, the light, and the space.  Feast your eyes!
