1920s Weddings

An Art Deco Inspired Griffith Observatory Engagement Shoot

Your engagement session is the perfect opportunity to introduce your wedding theme! With the right location, a splash of floral styling, a few thoughtful details and of course some swanky new outfits, that make you and your beloved feel amazing; you can get some all important practice being in front of the camera, create some beautiful memories and have some fun! And today’s gorgeous engagement shoot by Peterson Design & Photography showcases just what I’m saying perfectly!…..

An Art Deco Inspired Griffith Observatory Engagement Shoot

Here’s a little bit from Marisa of Peterson Design & Photography about the gorgeous couple, Kristina & Jonathan, and why the fabulous Griffith Observatory in Downtown LA was the perfect backdrop for them: “Kristina and Jonathan met during their time at Biola University and are having a Great Gatsby/Roaring 20’s wedding on New Years Day. So, to go along with that theme, we styled their engagement session to have a 1920s theme. We designed the florals and the props for the session (bringing some polaroids to add to the vintage flair!) and Kristina rocked an amazing Art Deco inspired dress from ModCloth! We did an early morning session up at the Griffith Observatory and the light, colors and sky were just spectacular. We cannot wait to ring in the new year with these two at their amazing wedding!”
