Before I start, my travel itinerary for 2011 has been updated! Okay now I will proceed.

So I thought I’ve worked through it all: rain, cold, snow, heat, crowded areas… but this session I got to work with dogs! On the way to the Griffith Observatory I sat in the backseat with the dogs, and to the dogs I only had two purposes: a bed and a stool. The dogs, Toby and Lola, would either sleep on me or stand on me to look outside the car window. But I didn’t mind at all. They were such great company. They’re also the only dogs that I’ve come across to have amazing breath. It actually smelled good and refreshing!

So this is James and Tina (and Toby and Lola). We took these at Griffith Observatory where they had their first date. It’s a nice place in case you’ve never been there. It has a phenomenal view, including a view of the Hollywood sign, if you can see through the notorious LA smog. On the inside of the Observatory there’s an abundance of knowledge of telescopes and our solar system. It’s really a great place for a date.

On the way there, my conversation with Tina and James comprised mainly of food topics. Hmm, it’s my favorite topic to talk about (except when I’m really hungry). And they were telling me about Umami burger, which is an incredibly delicious burger place that I had heard about before but not much in detail. James described the bun as being really soft, and ‘umami’ being the 5th taste. Sounds almost too good to be true? That’s what I thought so I went to go try it a couple days later, and it lived up to the hype!

Stare at the burger above. Salivate yet? If you didn’t something is wrong with you.

After our incredible and fun engagement session we headed over to the Palms Thai Restaurant, a Thai restaurant famous for having an Asian Elvis perform nightly. We chowed down on some pineapple fried rice,  pad see ew, curry, fish patties, and another spicy flat noodle dish. Amazing! Thank you Tina and James!

And check out their awesome images from the session!
