UCLA Engagement Photography

Howdy,

Doug and I had the chance to work with a neat couple with fresh perspectives of what they wanted for their engagement photographs. Since Liang (the snazzy groom-to-be) graduated from UCLA and Dee (the sassy bride-to-be) is doing her PhD at UCLA, they decided to conduct their engagement session at UCLA and Santa Monica Pier. Since I graduated from North Campus, Dee and Liang showed me a lot of cool places in South Campus that I never knew! One example would be the rooftop of Boelter Hall! Anyway, enjoy the images!

"I have always wanted to sit on the bear..." chided Liang, so I clasped my hands together to give Liang a boost up the bear!

This is one of my favorite images. It has a very nostalgic feel to the image because of the lined desks in the classroom. I especially love the light that poured in through the blinds. Absolutely delightful!

For those who are not familiar with UCLA, this is called the "Inverted Fountain" because (hopefully the name gives it away) the fountain is inverted.

We had Liang jump off the stairs of Powell Library.

Then vice versa...

"Piggy back rides are too played out, it's all about the wheelbarrow," claimed Liang. What started as a wheelbarrow became a "walking-my-dog" type of activity - definitely unorthodox.

What a cute dog! It looks like a stuffed animal!

It was a nippy morning, but we made due with the weather. The sun peeped out here and there, so we had moments of warmth. Their wedding should be awesome, so stay tuned for more posts.

Sincerely,


Lawrence
