Rained Out for our E-Session! Megha + Kevin

We caught up with Megha to hear about her romantic e-session, shot by Aaron Eye Photography, in Pasadena, CA.

Our engagement photoshoot was at Descanso Gardens in La Cañada/ Flintridge area. We looked into a few places. Balancing the look we wanted, schedules and costs, Descanso was great for us! It’s not a commonly used venue so that appealed to us as well.

They were easy to work with for booking as well as flexible when we had to reschedule because it rained!

 {Prepping for the Shoot}

I asked our photographer, Aaron, what colors to stay away from and he gave some suggestions of what NOT to wear.

1st: we decided on the number of outfits and styles. Kevin and I both wanted to wear two outfits each – fancy/elegant as well as casual/fun.

2nd:  we selected colors.

3rd:  we selected our outfits.

ProTip: Don’t do things last minute (if you can avoid it).

My formal outfit was a long dress, which I got from Rent the Runway (highly recommended by the way)! The dress was perfect and we were ready for the shoot…and then it rained so we had to reschedule the shoot. Unfortunately, I couldn’t get that same dress again. As you can imagine, I was stressing out!

However, my clothing karma was good that week, because the next day I went shopping during my lunch break and found a beautiful dress (the pink one). My mom had to do some minor alterations for me, but it did the job well and we love our photos!
