Who doesn’t love some USC engagement photography?! Edwin and Amanda met at the University of Southern California, so we totally had to do their engagement photos here. They were total naturals in front of the camera.

The Session

We started their USC engagement photography in the Exposition Park Rose Garden. With rows and rows of roses, this is such a hidden gem in Los Angeles.

Now I’m not sure if it was something I said or did, or if it was some camera nerves, but Amanda would just burst into a contagious fit of laughter that was too great not to capture.

Edwin got her a gorgeous engagement ring, so I definitely had to get a few close up photos of it.

Once we were done in the Rose Garden, we crossed the street and walked onto campus. Anyone who attended USC will recognize some of these iconic buildings.

After their formal outfits, Amanda and Edwin changed into some school gear to show some school pride, and to bring it full circle. I wanted to give it more of a in-school vibe since they had these more relaxed outfits on, so I told Edwin to hug and hold Amanda like he was putting his moves on her as if they were dating again. I think he did a pretty good job.

After the University of Southern California, we headed into Downtown Los Angeles to finish off their engagement photography session. They wanted a view of the skyline, and this spot did not disappoint! They looked great in their formal attire and rocked the end of their session.
