photo shoot

so my friend mollie is an amazing photographer. i've always loved her work, and never loved our engagement pictures much [my amazing sister took them, but they weren't profesh or anything like all the cool photo blogs i read nowadays]. she offered a smokin' deal for the month of feb, so b and i decided we needed a photo shoot.

i wanted to do it in downtown l.a. since we have lived and worked in (or within nine miles of it, in the case of pasadena) this city for the past three years -- the entire duration of our newlywed life, and then some. plus we probably won't be here forever, so i thought this could be a fun way to capture this chapter in our lives.

here are a couple of my favorite shots. you KNOW you have a good photographer when the pics actually look like you...not even my real simple shoot could do that. i love them! thanks mollie! see more on her blog here.

ha! i love this next one. get it? wells?
[thanks to the wells fargo building for being right up the street ;) ]

SO cute! Um, when did you do these??
My favs are: the walking one with brandon's shirt pulled out and messy tie, and the engagement-ish pose with your yellow shirt. Both very cute. Fun idea!

Janessa said...

You two are adorable. And, I miss my hometown.

Also, how long did it take B to hear from ASU? I haven't heard yet, and I need to give BYU an answer, fast...I might be mildly freaking out about it

Those are great photos. I love the colors, contrast and the vingnette -- really focuses the action.

I have to say my favorite is the walking one -- but I do adore the one taken at the WDCH -- partly because it's my favorite place - ever.

Brandon and Erica said...

I LOVE THESE! I don't know why, but everytime I see engagement pictures with the girls leg up on the guy, it makes me uncomfortable. Thank you for waiting until you're married to take a picture like that. No uncomfortableness here, folks.

And you are beautiful. Love the one with you guys walking in the street. CLASSIC!

P.S. you've already been married for three years? Man...you're old.

Scott and Megan said...

So you guys look like models from a magazine... gorgeous!!!

Amy Jason said...

Hey you two. Nice pictures! I wish we lived downtown so we could get some cool pics like that. Lyndsey you just have to now talk your hubby into a cool canvas print. Tell him I will give him a good price on one for putting up with me as a companion in the MTC.:) Tell him to check out the site. www.iprintcanvas.com Take care you sexy models!

sachia said...

Wells Fargo??? Very clever! Amazingly cute pics. I am just overwhelmed with hos adorable these are. I am a photography seeker so I am adding your find to my list. Thanks for sharing this. Love it.

The Facks of Life said...

That Lyndsey and Brandon are so hot right now! Ha ha! Amazing photos, I love them.

sachia said...

You looked fantastic on Sunday, I didn't get a chance to talk to you but wanted to say you looked smokin'.

Michelle said...

love the one where you are sneaking a smooch in the cool hallway. leaves me to wonder if that's what you do all day working at the same building--- sneak out for secret make out sessions. haha. :) how nice of wells fargo to situate themselves so close to you. that's a cool picture. Pretty soon you two will be hitting the A-list so just remember you knew me back in the day when you were c-listers!

JoLee said...

Love, love, love the pictures. You guys look like models! Actually, this really does look like some sort of photo shoot for an LA magazine or brochure or something. Too cute.
