I’m a firm believer in things working out how they’re supposed to. If you hear the story of how Tallia and Gil met and how they ended up dating you will know that fate had brought them together. I met up with Tallia and Gil in their old stomping grounds in Hollywood and while we wandered and found amazing places to shoot in, they told me their stories of living in the heart of Hollywood. Walking their dog at night to have people bark at their little dog. The music videos being made on the rooftop of their building. The great food and bars in their neighborhood that they frequented. The little patch of dirt and plastic grass on the rooftop meant for dogs to do their business, but it being so dirty that their little Cairn Terrier refused to walk anything but the brick perimeter. It was awesome getting a glimpse into their past lives. All in all it was a fantastic day spent with such a beautiful, warm hearted people. I’m really looking forward to capturing your wedding at The Montage this summer!
I love that Tallia and Gil decided to go all out glam for their engagement shoot. They carry the style beautifully (we couldn’t walk a single block without the two of them getting compliments right and left!) and it was a perfect look for their Hollywood session.
The day had started off overcast, but we were blessed with the most amazing light throughout their entire session. I love this next shot of them. So hot!
How amazing is this doorway? I knew I had to shoot in it.
The light in here was amazing. At the end of our session, I asked Tallia and Gil if they had plans for the evening and Gil replied that he was determined to take his girl out on the town since they were already all done up. What a romantic guy! I hope the two of you guys had an amazing night! It’s fun to get all dressed up for a date every now and again.
I really love how sweet and tender the next photo is. They can bring the fierce, the sexy, the fashion forward look, but they also have little moments like this that make me sigh.
I think I could have shot on this rooftop their entire session and been completely happy. The light was just perfection.
Such a gorgeous couple, wouldn’t you say?
Tallia and Gil, I had so much fun with you guys this past weekend! I’m so looking forward to your wedding!
