Here are the Arts District engagement photos of our couple, Young and Trung. They wanted something that was more them, something that reflected their vibe and style, using the Arts District in downtown Los Angeles.
Starting with Arts District Engagement Photos
We started in the Arts District, using random buildings and street settings as fun backdrops for our couple.
Getting Coffee at a Cafe in the Arts District
We then went to a local cafe that they love to get them being themselves. Coffee, cinnamon rolls, and the person you love sitting across from you is a great way to capture a couple in love.
More Arts District Engagement Photography with Graffiti and Buildings
Then we walked around the Arts District for more engagement photos, using graffiti on the walls for backdrops.
And whenever we see a wall of flowers, we HAVE to use it as a background.
Night Engagement Photos in Grand Park
We then went to Grand Park in downtown Los Angeles (off Grand Ave.) to get more lowlight night engagement photos, using the HUGE water fountain at Grand Park. We love pulling out the many colors from the artificial lighting under the water fountain jets.
More Downtown Los Angeles Engagement Photography at Night
We also walked around more to get more engagement photos with the downtown Los Angeles skyline.
Arts District Engagement Photos
This is an engagement photography portrait session taking place in the Arts District in downtown Los Angeles. It’s a section of town that has recently been rejuvenated with an influx of urban professionals and art galleries, lying on the eastern edge of downtown Los Angeles. We love the feel and vibe of that area and watching it grow and develop. The Arts District is known for many beautiful graffiti murals and pieces, which make for amazing backdrops for engagement photos.
We have been shooting in the Arts District for over a decade now. I have even had friends get robbed during and engagement photography session for all of their photo equipment, back when it was less safe. As the eastern edge of downtown Los Angeles grew and developed, it became safer and more interesting, becoming a community and cultural hotspot of it’s own.
