Griffith Park Engagement_ZY_Vivian Lin Photography_45Who knew there was a forest right smack in the middle of LA?  Who knew the long sleeping vegetation could survive all these years of So Cal drought and revive with a healthy dose of rain?  Well, Zinnia and York had every confidence in me finding a spot of green in Griffith Park.  Their engagement shoot took place back in December, before I realized how blessed we would be with all this rain, and it had been a while since I had shot there.  I was pleasantly surprised when I discovered this lovely location, with rolling hills and wintry trees.  It worked out great to incorporate the cheery blue bike Zinnia and York had brought along for their session.  The bike was the perfect personal touch for their love story.  Zinnia fell for York shortly after she expressed her desire to start cycling.  York went above and beyond by training Zinnia for her goal of cycling 70 miles.  Wow.  Thank you, Zinnia and York, for climbing hills, sweating a little, and being such an inspiration as a couple.  I had so much fun, I took Ray and our dogs back to hike that section of Griffith the very next weekend.Griffith Park Engagement_ZY_Vivian Lin Photography_3Griffith Park Engagement_ZY_Vivian Lin Photography_7Griffith Park Engagement_ZY_Vivian Lin Photography_11-2Griffith Park Engagement_ZY_Vivian Lin Photography_4Griffith Park Engagement_ZY_Vivian Lin Photography_25Griffith Park Engagement_ZY_Vivian Lin Photography_15Griffith Park Engagement_ZY_Vivian Lin Photography_33Griffith Park Engagement_ZY_Vivian Lin Photography_42Griffith Park Engagement_ZY_Vivian Lin Photography_37Griffith Park Engagement_ZY_Vivian Lin Photography_41-2Griffith Park Engagement_ZY_Vivian Lin Photography_49Griffith Park Engagement_ZY_Vivian Lin Photography_55Griffith Park Engagement_ZY_Vivian Lin Photography_60Griffith Park Engagement_ZY_Vivian Lin Photography_67Griffith Park Engagement_ZY_Vivian Lin Photography_58Super excited for your big day!
