Los Angeles Botanical Gardens Engagement Session | Los Angeles Wedding Photographers

We photographed Tayler and Dakota’s engagement pictures at the scenic Los Angeles Arboretum.  Surrounded by gorgeous greenery and flowing waterfalls, it was impossible to take a bad photo with this couple.  Tayler and Dakota showed up dressed to impress for their engagement shoot, in a dapper suit and floor length gown.  As Los Angeles engagement photographers, we couldn’t have asked for better subjects.  Their love for each other shows in every single photograph, and with a little bit of posing, direction, and lighting, we were able to capture them in a way that they will cherish long past their wedding day.  

We started out Tayler and Dakota’s engagement photos with a casual look, while we let them get warmed up to the camera and taught them some basic posing techniques that they can use for the wedding day too!  Once they got comfortable in front of the camera, their engagement photographer challenged them a bit to capture the bold, dramatic images we’re known for capturing.  Donning a formal look, we ended their engagement session in front of a beautiful waterfall, and allowed Tayler’s gorgeous engagement ring take front and center in their final photos.  We loved working with this couple for their engagement session, and can’t wait to photograph their wedding day!
