LA Art District Engagement | Shawn & Danielle
One of the fun things about shooting in a place you don’t know well, is you really get to feel like you are exploring with the couple. Shawn and Danielle are familiar with the Arts District of downtown LA but I hadn’t really spent much time there. (Which is embarrassing because it’s awesome!) This is one of the reasons I encourage couples to choose their own location. I can definitely help but I’d much rather shoot them in place that means something the two of them. I’ve shot everywhere from the beach to a local donut shop! It all works. Trust me.
Shawn and Danielle were a blast to spend time with. We started the shoot getting drinks at Eat Drink Americano. If you haven’t been there and you live in LA… go! It’s so cute and they make amazing cocktails. They were incredibly gracious and let us take photos while we enjoyed our drinks. After that we walked all over looking for cool alleys, fun art walls, and anything else that would make a photo worthy moment.
Shawn and Danielle are both beer lovers so after a brief impromptu rave dance party in front of an art wall we headed into Angel City Brewery. Another amazing downtown LA spot!! Not only was it a perfect spot to finish the night BUT one very sweet employee let us sneak into the back and take photos where they actually make the beer!
