Hello world! My apologies I haven’t blogged in over 6 months and I sincerely apologize for that! So to make it up I will be blogging more often to make up for all the times that I haven’t blogged! There’s SOOO much good shoots and good content I’ve been depriving you guys of awesome, creative, cute, and lovey dovey pohtography!

What I love about this session.
1) It’s in the rain! Not only is this great for our state, but it’s makes for ultra cute photos!
2) When Annie booked me as her photographer I was really excited because she’s sooo fun, funny and expressive!
3) It’s my millionth time shooting engagement photos at the walt disney concert hall, but only my second time shooting at the Broad Museum! I’ve waiting for this building to be done for a really long time!
4) Ahh the classic coke bottles! I don’t like Coke but I definitely love the way they look!
5) Shooting with the wall art in downtown is basically how I started my style and my photography so even after all these years some things never change! ENjoy!

I’m going to tell you the story of how this happened. Not the story of how they met or how long they’ve been together but of the story of this day through…me.

8:32AM Wednesday.
Dino calls me. I’m still asleep. I ignore the call.

8:32AM
Dino calls me again. I don’t recognize the number, but I figured it must be important. I pick up the phone and answer with my normal response when I don’t recognize the number, but since I just woke up I responded very very slowly…

Me – “Helloooo….this..is..erich”

Dino -”Hey this is Dino” I thought he said Tino, I had a friend named Tino who recently needed headshots.

Me – Heyyy!! Hey Tino!” in the tone I use when I think I know who I’m talking to.

Dino – “Hey Erich can you do my wedding photos today?” I paused in utter confusion. Wedding photos?!? I suddenly had no idea who I was talking to and I started to panic, and I thought for a second it was a Saturday and I was supposed to be at a wedding. But then I maybe he said “Tony”, the groom I recently photographed in Hawaii and he wanted me to edit his wedding photos. There was a long pause and I was still really confused, and I finally admitted defeat.

Me – “Wait…who is this?”

Dino – “Dino, Dino Bangara” I could sense the frustration his voice which only made me more confused. I was so lost! I used to call him Dinesh which is his legal name, so his name didn’t register at first. And then when I realized that he meant engagement photos, and not wedding photos I finally realized who I was talking and what he wanted after minutes of talking and lots of awkward pauses.

Me – “Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh! Got it!”

So it turns out he’s surprising his girlfriend with a proposal at the end of Santa Monica Pier. Here are the photos! icon smile Meet Dino and Marge! Hes proposing to her.

I’m certainly not the funniest person in the world, but I definitely pride myself on being pretty silly. In fact, I think I can be a very silly person. During a lot of my engagement shoots I’ll ask the couple to do some pretty silly things just to loosen up and have fun.

But then there’s Polly and Kwong, and they threw me completely off. Way off.  They came up with their own random things to do, and it’s amazing. They are the god and goddess of silliness. I can’t even compete in silliness, not even close. It’s like thinking you’re really really good in basketball, and then realizing you’re going one-on-one with Lebron James. He then beats you even with both his eyes closed, shoes untied, sitting in a wheelchair faced the other way.  Well, sort of.

Kwong is not only silly, but he is one of the funniest (tied with Matt Parker) people I have ever photographed, and it gets to the point sometimes where my cheeks hurt because I was smiling too much. By the end of the shoot, I was dead exhausted, and not because I was photographing but because I had laughed so much.

Anyways we photographed this session at the Arboretum and the Observatory. I think the Arboretum is pretty fitting just because there’s random funny looking peacocks everywhere. The observatory is where they went on a special date, I think.

Enjoy the photos!

Recently I had a huge influx of Youtube subscribers, and one of my videos had a huge surge in views, but I had no idea why. I just thought to myself, “Oh maybe I’m getting famous.”  Yeah I think lame things like that all the time.

Then I get an email from this guy named Alex saying he saw my video on Fstoppers and then bam! It all makes sense. I don’t know how Fstoppers found me, but I don’t care. I am excited!!!

This engagement sesssion video takes place at my local and the historical Union Station in Downtown Los Angeles with the amazing Mark and Serena. Their wedding is coming up in a couple of weeks, and I am very excited icon smile Featured on FSTOPPERS!
