LA Arboretum Engagement Photography – Rachel and Seth (and Peacocks)

I was so excited when Rachel and Seth wanted to take their engagement photos at the Los Angeles Arboretum because it’s such a pretty location with such a variety of nature. And that was before I realized there would be peacocks! The peacocks were not shy about having their photos taken, so it was really cool to have them in a few of the shots. Rachel and Seth are adorable together and were cracking me up laughing the whole time we were shooting. I can’t wait for their wedding next year, knowing that will also be a really fun day!

See the rest of the photos or order prints here.

Most of these images are Kodak Portra 400, Mamiya 645 ProTL with 80mm and 45mm lenses. There are few digital shots with Mastin Labs presets mixed in too.
