Downtown Los Angeles, Engagement Shoot, Vito & Cilia
I grew up in the San Fernando Valley, just a tad north of downtown Los Angeles, and though I didn’t spend a lot of time there in my life, I sitll consider it the hub of my own home. I love how sunlight hits the city, because each quarter hour brings a new tone, and a new feeling of excitement…or, sometimes of danger ;)… Just knowing that those city lights are beginging to glow, and sun is warming those cold glass windows for the last time in that day, does something to my soul. Every corner has something new and interesting to discover. Down one street you find an old theater waiting for the every-day-joe to stroll in and enjoy some good weeknight entertainment after work. Two streets up you accidentally run into a car commercial filming and need to get waived on by irritated directors, and just three blocks over you pull over to admire the glow of the great Disney Hall, and for a moment you feel totally justified in rescheduling your entire evening in order to sit in on the music of a sweet symphany performance.
All to say, love is in the air in the city. It was uncommonly easy to capture the hearts of Vito and Cilia for each other in their home city. Their playful tones and light spirits matched the colors and shapes of the city itself in perfect symmetry.
Thank you for sharing a day downtown with me, I can’t wait to see your faces on the day you wed!
