mel + austins engagement shoot was such a blast! it began with secret emails from mel asking me to do a “portrait session” for them when they would be in town. we all knew it would be an engagement shoot, austin just needed to get on one knee and do the deed. which he did, in style > on the fanciest rooftop restaurant in vegas. with the ring on mels finger and bubbling with joy they drove out in their fancy red rental camaro to sunny LA.
both mel and austin have amazing style but they let me put in my two sense and style them a bit. once we had the outfits picked out we headed to DTLA. i had a blast getting to reconnect with Mel Batie a dear friend [and amazing hairstylist] that i hadnt seen in over 3 years and getting to know austin. this couple is incredible. they have patience, style, drive, humor and are just quality. i cant wait to see where GOD takes them and how he uses them!
note: all these photos were taken in a 5 mile radius each other downtown. all you haters of LA, be surprised, this city is pretty amazing….and has some green spots!
