If you've ever had an opportunity to visit Pasadena, then you know that it's a pretty unique spot. It's secluded in a way that it feels like you're stepping into a smaller, easy town that isn't just outside of Los Angeles. Complete with beautiful architecture, cute little shops and restaurants, it's the sort of place you see in all of those sweet, romantic date movies. Honestly, I'm kind of surprised that I don't see more engagement shoots and weddings held in Pasadena!
A big thank you to the oh-so-sweet and talented photographer Beatrice Howell of RomaBea Images for sharing Mike and Diana's lovable engagement photo shoot! Personally, I like to imagine Mike and Diana spending an easy Sunday afternoon together, which begins at the local Cheese Store in Pasadena, and continues with a leisurely walk through the city, stopping at the elegant Pasadena City Hall and other picturesque spots along the way. What really makes this particular engagement shoot for me is the great variety of locations and scenery...I had so much trouble narrowing down the photos for this post because of it! I love how Beatrice sort of "sets the stage" in the cheese shop, and then continues to wander the city to get some more modern, urban shots in front of an ordinary apartment building, some fun ones in the red telephone booths, and lots of romantic, intimate photographs of Diana and Mike in front of some beautiful buildings entryways. Beatrice took what could have been fairly ordinary and every day and made it beautiful...that's what I love most about this engagement shoot!
