It was sophomore year at UCLA and they both had recently moved into their dorm rooms. Had they seen each other around campus? Possibly. But it wasn’t until a dormitory function that they exchanged hellos. It didn’t take long… one week. In one week, Alla and Darren started dating and instantly knew they were incomplete without the other. It’s been 10 years and this April, they are finally saying their I dos.
When picking a location for engagement photos. I advise my couples to pick places that are meaningful to them, a place the represents them as a couple. Many couples love our beach engagement photography sessions and as well as our city, downtown LA engagement sessions. As for Alla and Darren, they wanted to go back to where it all began… UCLA. We spent the first half of their session reminiscing their undergrad years at UCLA. From Royce Hall to Bruin Walk to little napping dates in the library, their time at UCLA was more than just an education; it was the beginning of a life-long romance.
