Anna + Miles // Los Angeles engagement photography

One of my favorite things to do with my couples is to ask the guy when he *knew*.  Girls usually have the answers for everything when it comes to the story of their romance, so I love the chance to hear it from his perspective.  What was going on in his head when he had his ah-ha moment and what exactly his game face looked like.  Did he try to sit on it for awhile?  Or did his newly discovered knowledge give him away immediately?  Each couple and circumstance is so unique unto themselves that it really creates a neat portrait of who they are together.

Miles had the most direct, short and sweet, didn’t-have-to-think-about-it-for-a-second answer I think I’ve ever heard.  From the beginning.  I knew I wasn’t even ready to ask her out yet because with Anna, I knew it was going to be forever.  She was the one and it was obvious to not only Miles, but to their dearest mutual friends.  They share an awful lot, from those same friends to their entertainment industry careers and love of travel.  They are two of the most funny, endearing people you’ll ever meet, and their laughter together is infectious and constant.  Just the kinds of things you’d want for your forever.

 
For their engagement session I met up with Anna and Miles in their West Hollywood neighborhood that they love so much.  We spent the afternoon walking around the nooks and crannies of Melrose together, enjoying a sip at one of their favorite spots to kick things off and then looking for whatever fun, urban surprises we could find.

Anna and Miles are going to be married this August and I am so excited to be traveling to Virginia to photograph their wedding day at Anna’s family’s place, The Clifton Inn.  We had a blast playing together in their “home together” neighborhood around West Hollywood for their engagement session, so it will be awesome to have something so different near Anna’s childhood home for their wedding day.  These two have a knack for lighting things up wherever they are so it really can’t possibly be anything short of amazing.
