So glad to work with Marie and Frank, such a nice and happy couple. And love their venue, Heritage Square Museum in downtown LA, a living history museum showing the lives of 19th century.
This album arrived last week and I just have time to upload pictures. It is 12″ X 12″ paper cover one with 34 sides inside, matte paper with bright color, nicely done. Isn’t it wonderful anytime when open the book, you can see those happy faces? It come with a black paper box which can protect the album for a longer time.
I have been Eastern Sierra almost once a year. It’s the most beautiful place in California at fall. Aspen leaves turn to yellow from September, starting at high elevation to low elevation. At the middle of Oct, when climate get colder, you can see snow at top of the mountain and yellow leaves at foot of mountain. Its just perfect background of engagement and pre-wedding session.
I had such chance to shoot this couple’s engagement session last year. We left LA at Friday afternoon, merging into the bad traffic. After 5 hours driving, we arrived our cabin at late night. Saturday morning, we started to explore the Eastern Sierra area. First, we visited Mono lake, and then Bodie Ghost Town. After lunch we arrived Mammoth lake at late afternoon. We were shocked when saw the Aspen forest along the lake. The Leaves were pure yellow without any green color. The sky light filtered by those leaves was turn to kind of soft and warm light, scattering on them. Temperature was low, but we all exited and worked couple hours till sunset.
We left this amazing place at Sunday morning, with those beautiful photos and unforgettable memories.
Eastern Sierra, we will back.
This wedding has been done last year, but all the editing and album work just finished.
Marie and Frank got married last Saturday at Heritage Square Museum, which is a living history museum that explores the settlement and development of Southern California from the Civil War to the early 20th Century. With those historic buildings as background, they designed the vintage and romantic settings for the whole wedding.
What made me worried was the heavy rain at Friday night and Sat morning. Surprisingly, it came to blue sky with white cloud about noon time. Everything went to perfect since then, historic buildings, vintage settings, and most importantly, a beautiful and happy couple.
