Union Station Engagement Photos - Los Angeles, California

If you know anything about Houston and me, then you probably know that we met on the Metrolink train. The two and a half hour daily commute allowed us to really get to know each other and somewhere between my leaning-against-the-wall train naps, working towards my bachelor's degree and clipping coupons, a handsome fella in blue oxford shoes slowly won over my heart.

It seemed only fitting, then, that we take our Union Station engagement photos at the place where our love story started: Union Station in Downtown Los Angeles.

It was our first time meeting our photographer Joe from George Street Photo and Video and I was a nervous wreck. Photography is probably the only thing that will turn me into a bridezilla - it is so important to me and I am praying that everything goes well. I was so anxious to meet Joe and probably scared him half to death; in fact, I think I actually threatened him. Sorry Joe.

Houston and I are very familiar with the interior of the station and the many different tunnels in the main hallway that lead to the train platforms. We walk those concrete hallway together frequently and I had scoped out some image inspiration on Pinterest.

We had a wonderful time running around Union Station on a Friday afternoon and entertaining the masses with our public displays of affection.

Is riding the train my favorite thing? No. But being there with my handsome fella sure makes the work commute infinitely better.

I love how our Union Station Engagement Photos capture a critical part of our love story in a fun way.

  1. Um these are precious and will go crazy on Pinterest. (: It's great to pick a place that means a lot to your relationship. Rather than a "set" or studio.

  4. You guys got some really gorgeous engagement shots! Perfect for you two! I met my husband on the lawn of my college campus, my first day of college--it's nice to have a place you remember specifically that you can take any future children back to one day!

  7. Thank you, @Rachel G !


    We both love the sentimental feeling we get when riding the train - but would be happy to do without the 2 hour commute! ;)
