We had SO much fun on this shoot with Mandie + Minh in downtown LA. We started at Mandie’s family’s home where her Aunt diligently and dexterously dressed her in her mother’s beautiful kimono. This takes hours, and it was really cool to see how artful of a process it is. We then went downtown and walked around the Japanese Gardens at the Japanese Cultural and Community Center. This garden is totally hidden in between tall city buildings. It’s like a secret oasis… just beautiful! We really loved the dramatic light there. And Mandie and Minh just looked so elegant there. After the gardens, we walked around the streets of Little Tokyo and snagged some funky urban shots with more great dramatic light. Then we were off to the Walt Disney Concert Hall, which was an absolutely stunning location to shoot at. We had a lot of fun with reflection and shadow here. Gosh, it was photography heaven! What a killer location! We’re so happy that Mandie and Minh chose such great locations… it was such unique shoot. We can’t wait for the wedding!
