Historic Hollywood Estate with Happy Hearts
Robert & Victoria
A message from the bride
Describe your experience with finding the perfect location for your PreWedding Session: Finding the perfect location for your session can be a little bit of a challenge because there are so many beautiful locations to choose from in LA.
We essentially decided on the Houdini Estate, based off of our style as a couple, and personalities. It had such a diverse and unique array of settings within one site, leaving you with the impression that each area was located in a different place.
What are your recommendations/tips for couples before/during their PreWedding Session?: Definitely consider the locations in advance. You should do your research in advance, so you can choose the perfect location for this once in a lifetime experience! And of course, let loose, be yourselves and have fun!
What was your favorite part about your session?: Our favorite part was how eloquently Rene directed us. Most engaged couples who go in front of the camera are not professionals, so it is important to be directed well. Rene helped us be ourselves, to be playful and romantic, allowing us to freely show our love on camera.
Describe the moment he proposed!: Our proposal was at one of our favorite high rises in LA, where we would sneak up to and just hang out. When we got there, the rooftop was beautifully decorated and right after he proposed, our friends popped out of their hiding places surprising us! It was the most magical moment, almost impossible to describe in words.
Tell us about your very first date!: Our very first date was at Starbucks! We talked for hours and our personalities clicked right away. It just felt so natural.
Interesting/fun facts about you as a couple: One month after dating, our relationship became long distance. We got to know each other and fell in love through phone calls and video chats.
What are you most excited about for your upcoming wedding?: Everyone around us has been so loving and supportive, and we're beyond excited to celebrate our love with our family and friends.
We've been waiting for this day for 8 years and it is finally here!
