Nova + James Pasadena City Hall Engagement

These two are getting married THIS WEEKEND! This sweet dentist couple, Nova and James were absolute joy to photograph and I know their wedding day is going to be just as amazing. For their engagement we decided to go to Pasadena City Hall for their beautiful courtyard and architecture. Pasadena engagement photoshoots are one of my favorites! The city is so incredibly beautiful, regardless of location. Old Town Pasadena is so calming and nice for a nice stroll, especially for sunrise sessions. There’s beautiful gardens and small parks here and there for photo spots, too! For this Pasadena engagement session, we decided to stroll around within Pasadena City Hall grounds.

It’s been a while since I shot at the Pasadena City Hall in the afternoon hours, so the lighting was different. It was such a nice fresh change to have the ability to photograph the city hall from different angles. Also, I completely forgot it was prom season so there were ton of young teens. The city hall is seriously a gem for all occasions and I absolutely always suggest it if you are on the fence of shooting there. From the famous staircases to the beautiful fountain, to the sidewalk alongside the building – Nova and James absolutely nailed it.

Enjoy the engagement session gallery from the beautiful city of Pasadena! Can’t wait to celebrate with them this weekend đŸ™‚
