Engagement: Griffith Park Observatory

Long-time couple Claudia and Andy are getting hitched! Andy is a hopeless romantic and wanted to do something incredibly special for his proposal. He led her up a hike at Griffith Park where he created a big heart out of rose petals, and got down on one knee in the middle and popped her the question! Awww, right?! So, we chose LA’s iconic Griffith Park Observatory to shoot their engagement.

The Observatory offered a perfect blend of Andy’s love for architecture and nature. We even got some silly shots towards the end of our shoot where Andy started hugging trees! What a fun-filled day!

WELCOME

I call myself a ‘people’ photographer, specializing in capturing the personalities of people through family, newborn and event photography. I’m originally German-Japanese and was raised embracing both cultures. I was raised in Japan and in many parts of Europe, until I finally settled in Los Angeles to call it my permanent home. My love for photography started at an early age. A fun hobby eventually turned in to a passion when I found joy in taking candid photos of my friends. Naturally, my love for photography turned in to a lifestyle and I was asked to photograph people’s milestones and celebrations. And so, my photography business was born in 2010.
