{ ayumi + brian | los angeles engagement }

Love the props Ayumi & Brian brought along to their session – nothing too fancy, just fun simple items that reflected a bit of who they are and lent a playful flair to the photos :) Like their favorite vintage cameras. Some of Brian’s records (he DJs!) And my favorite – kami-fuusen {translates literally into “paper balloons”}, which are nostalgic toys from Japan. Love the colorfulness of it all and how Ayumi & Brian really relaxed & had fun with their session. So so excited for their wedding at the Smog Shoppe in just a few weeks! (P.S. How is it already almost March???)

    So beautiful! I love the colors and lighting, and also how both Ayumi and Brian look wonderful in their own natural styles. Ayumi, are all the paper balloons at the wedding going to be covered in lipstick? :D

    Ayumi, the photos are beautiful! You look so lovely & radiant! Your fiance, Brian looks so content & happy. You two fit together like a Mizpah pendant. (In an old Jewish tradition, each partner wears 1/2 of a pendant-the pieces come together like a puzzle, they fit). These photos capture that old saying, “You were meant for each other.” Love, playfulness (the Japanese baloons), laughter, and joy are reflected in these photos! I love the idea of using your vintage cameras too! We create and capture the lives we want – just as a camera does through its lense! Ayumi and Brian you’ve got it right! Many Blessings!!!
