Last winter I went to Atlanta to spend Christmas with Suzy’s family. However, I was shooting a wedding here in L.A. on the 20th of December, so Suzy went to out a few days ahead of me. The one downside was that our one year dating anniversary was on the 19th. I was sad I wouldn’t get to see her on that day, but I arranged for some flowers to be delivered to where she was staying. Right after I arrived Suzy told me about this great location she had seen for some photos. The next day we brought the roses and went to check it out! Here’s the post: http://www.lukasvandyke.com/?p=701.
Anyway, after I put the photos up I commented that it would be super fun to do a few wedding photos at that location. This is where Brian and Emily come into the story. Mid summer Brian talked to me about the possibility doing the photos for his January 2nd wedding. He told me the only problem was that the wedding was going to be in Atlanta. As he said that this little light bulb popped up above me head. I suggested it might be fun to do some of their wedding photos at the location where I did the photos of Suzy. They loved the idea and long story short I’m super excited about January 2nd!
Enjoy the engagement photos! =).
awwww these two are just super cute lol.
I mean who doesn’t love blue bricks?
Ok this is a super freaking alley I found location scouting one day. It’s has these old train tracks down the middle and a homeless guy with a big tent a queen size bed and two pitbulls living at the end. Love it!
If you live in LA and have never been to the L.A. public library, shame on you. It’s a super cool place! =)
This is my second favorite shot of the shoot.
And this is my favorite. I love that sweet little moment right as you come in for the kiss. It’s the decisive moment that makes the shot!
