Engagement photos are the perfect opportunity for a couple to become comfortable with their wedding photographer, with being in front of a camera, and also to have this beautiful time in their lives memorialized. Jillean and Michael met up with their photographer, Lauren Balingit, a few days before their wedding to have a casual engagement session in the hills overlooking Los Angeles, and we’re sure that these simple, sweet photos will hold cherished memories for a lifetime.
Read on for more from the photographer, Lauren Balingit:
“Just a couple of days before from Jillean & Michael’s wedding, in the midst of welcoming their families and tying together last minute details, I had the pleasure of sneaking them away for some sunset photos in Griffith Park in LA. That was the first time we were able to meet and get to know each other a little bit; we talked about our faith and families, and they shared the beautiful story of how they met and fell in love.
The best thing about photographing people is just that- the people. It’s always such a joy to get to know the stories of those in front of my camera, and it allows me to photograph them in a more authentic way.”
