Arlington Garden & Pasadena City Hall Engagement Session

Meet Tina & Ben.

The Arlington Garden is a 3-acre botanical garden, located in Pasadena, California. It is Pasadena's only dedicated free public garden. You don't need to worry about purchasing a photo permit because it's totally allowed. It is also open 24 hours a day! So of course, we headed there first for the casual, laid-back portion of their session. It was a pleasure working with such sweet hearts & I really hope you enjoy Tina & Ben's engagement session :)











This was the last shot at Arlington Garden. We then headed to the Pasadena City Hall for the formal portion of their session. Luckily, it was only about a 10 minute drive away. Tina & Ben were really looking forward to getting some sunset photos here. Sadly, it was a very gloomy day with hardly any sun. But luckily, I brought my strobe lights along with yellow gels to mimic sun light. Below is the result :D

It looks so natural & you could never be able to tell but, the "sunlight" is actually one of my strobe lights.





I really hoped you enjoyed Tina & Ben's engagement session. Thanks to my lovely assistant Evelyn, we were able to get some behind the scenes. Check out how we work and watch the video below.
