A romantic engagement sessions between two love birds in the beautiful countryside near the town of Shreveport Louisiana. Truly a bright and airy session feel with a bit of quirky playfulness to add. These two got married at the beautiful St. Catherine's at Bell Gable in Fayetteville Arkansas. To see more of these to love birds, check out there wedding gallery HERE.
These two creatives are actors at heart who had zero trouble showcasing the passion bubbling in their relationship. This lovely Los Angeles engagement session had the lovely city of Down Town LA as it's backdrop. Enjoy the city scape skyline views and deep moody romance between these two that has easily become one of my personal favorite engagement sessions to date.
A match made in sunny Malibu heaven. The rich warmth these two have in their hearts for one another was perfectly paired with the stunning El Matador State Beach as their Engagement location. You can nearly feel their bubbly personality through these images. With the raging sea behind them and shear rocky landscape to match, this made for a truly unique engagement session.
Enjoy these two's lovely engagement session on a bright and beautiful hilltop in the area of Malibu State Creek Park. These two knew how to incorporate their own personal style and flair into their session. With it's majestic tree, and golden fields you can easily say there's nothing like having the beautiful landscape of Southern California as a backdrop for a engagement location.

Engagement photos are so special, they truly are a display of two couples personal journey, style, and the love they have between them. The first step is to visualize what you'd like your engagement photos to look like. Many couples love bright and airy engagement photos. Some love dark and moody engagement photos. Wether you are a couple who love passion and romance, or if you're more on the light and playful style, Glass Darkly is the right engagement photographer for whichever direction you want to go.

There are so many engagement or proposal photo locations in Los Angeles. Wether it's the beautiful hills of Malibu or the Sand Dunes, or the lovely beaches like Santa Monica Beach or Venice Beach, you can go wrong with Los Angeles as your backdrop for your engagement session.
Props! I love props. Theres nothing like a good flower crown or maybe your favorite chair in order to make your engagement images really stand out. Hats, accessories, jackets, scarfs, blankets etc. are all great things to think about bringing to make your photos stand out. Anything special in between you and your future spouse, bring it to your session and think about how to incorporate it. Some of my favorite engagement ideas include picnics in a field with a picnic basket, or mountain top proposals with a motorcycle in the photos.
Absolutely! Logistically, proposal photos are a little bit different as they involve some sneaking around on my part :) But they can truly be some of the most special times to capture a budding engagement at the moment it starts. You definitely want to make sure you choose the right proposal location in Los Angeles as there are so many options that can be special and romantic and will surely stick in your mind for the rest of your life. Be sure to thoroughly plan backup options as many things can go unexpected during a proposal!
Engagement photo outfits vary widely! We absolutely love a more free spirited vibe, though we love a good pair of jeans and t-shirt, it's best to leave them out of your engagement session. It's a momentous occasion celebrating your future marriage, so you want to put your best into choosing the perfect outfit to wear on the day. For you ladies, think long flowing dresses, think soft earthy tones and colors, Floral patterns are great option as well. For the guys, it's pretty simple. Match the girls, Ha! a simple button down with a sport coat is a great option. Peak through our engagement galleries and look for inspiration! A little flare like a leather jacket or stylish hat always stands out.
