My previous client from USC referred me to Echo and Jason. We first met each other at a small cafe in Encino for brunch, and I realized this could be an interesting project. Echo is an architect of Jerde graduated from USC Architecture Department, and Jason works as a engineer of film special effects. We pick three locations for their pre wedding session: Manhattan Beach, DTLA art district, and Disney Concert Hall which have the most relationship with their lives.
The whole shooting process took about 8 hours including commute time. Both us had fun except the cold temperature at night. Jason’s favorite photo is the one he jumping into air and Echo looking at him with smile, which shows their characters exactly.
They are having their weddings in China now. Hope they enjoy the trip back home and have nice weddings there.
