{ Hana + Toshi, Part II | Griffith Observatory Engagement }

For the second half of their engagement session, Hana & Toshi chose the stunning Griffith Observatory {see Part I of their session here}  As we brainstormed ideas, Hana googled some past sessions that were done there, and came across some lovely photos that my friend Caroline Tran had done, sending a couple to me as her inspiration. Hana loved the concept of a pink balloon and decided to double the fun with two, as well as some adorable handmade cards which you will see below.

I loved shooting at the observatory! The combo of the whimsical balloons, the glittery city lights, the watercolor sunset, and an absolutely sweet & down-for-anything couple made for the dreamiest session.

** On a side note, just discovered last night that we were nominated for the Poppytalk awards! I was so excited as I love their beautiful design blog! Would be so honored if you would vote for us here! **

    Wow Adrienne–this shoot is stunning! Absolutely gorgeous!!! Nature shots plus beautiful architecture with the twilight sky and the city lights in the background? DIVINE!!! Like a few of the others, the first and the last photos took my breath away. This was the perfect shoot to incorporate balloons. Such a lucky couple. I’m sure Scott had fun with this one as well. You two did such a fantastic job on this one. I hope you two are doing well–seems you are from these amazing shoots you’ve been having! :D
