Pasadena City Hall Engagement Photographer

I often suggest to brides and grooms that they should consider bringing meaningful props to their engagement session. Kristin and Jerrod both work in the film industry and thus popcorn and peanuts were a great choice for them. When they arrived at Pasadena City Hall, they opened their trunk and showed me dozens of props. I selected the popcorn and peanuts over many of the other props because Kristin had gone to the trouble to find the containers and pop some popcorn and I felt that I had no choice but to choose those specific items. At the time, I had no idea what a great decision I was making to pick those items first. This photograph is designed as an opening spread that sets the tone for the rest of the album and builds a small measure of suspense due to the anonymity of the subjects.
