e-session Historic Los Angeles

Linda and Kevin, like I do, enjoy historic buildings with distinct architecture. We wanted to visit as many old structures in the Downtown Los Angeles as we could, but I knew that would have taken weeks exploring the old neighborhood. We did manage to get inside the majestic Million Dollar Theater, the Bradbury Building, and then Los Angeles City Hall. Here are just a tiny few of my favorite images from their Los Angeles engagement session:

I love that vintage dress!







Naturally I wanted to do most of these in grainy black and white, but I couldn't resist throwing in at least one brilliant color!

Greg Bumatay, YOU ROCK!!! Gee, how did you pick up on our nerdy OCD nature? We have been refreshing your blog page for 24 hours! You have seriously saved our hamster like sanity. I am so happy with these.

Kevin Pang said...

Greg, these look amazing! And not a moment too soon. Linda and I have been refreshing your site every hour on the hour ever since the shoot (you know, just in case you finished them an hour after you got back). I don't think we could have made it another day. Thanks for getting them up so quickly! :-) We can't wait to see how the rest turned out and really can't wait to see how the wedding photos turn out!

Beautiful. Classic. Amazing. I am in awe. You two have great chemistry and the photography is genius. This truly takes my breath away.

Kevin said...

We just saw the rest of the photos and they turned out just as wonderfully as these! We're going to have a hard time figuring out which ones we want to print out. And I'm sure it's going to be even harder once we see the wedding photos. :-)
