Story

The main inspiration for this shot was the contrast between the couple and the context that we wanted to showcase. We loved pairing up the very smart and classy look the couple had opted for in their black tuxedos, to their colorful urban and slightly unkempt surroundings, so we wanted to blend the two together.

Plus, that particular street art is actually our favorite in Los Angeles, so we had to incorporate it in some way, especially given how it was just down the street from their wedding venue. One thing that particularly struck us that evening was how quiet the area was (very strange for the Arts District in Downtown Los Angeles!). The whole session was entirely calm and stress-free, and that was amazing.

The Hendrys

Photographer United States of America Canon 5D Mark III Canon 35mm f/1.4 II
Scottish duo living our best lives in Los Angeles! More importantly, parents of two babe-licious rescue bunnies who keep us sane. The sober and vegan lifestyle is our jam. We only take life seriously when it really matters (adulting can suck at times!). We have a deep-rooted connection with each other and that’s why we work so well together. It’s quite cute really. We are not typical wedding photographers, that is for certain. We go against the usual grain, and that’s exactly how we like it to roll. Normal is boring. Well, for us, at least. We’re constantly pushing ourselves creatively and are incredibly passionate about telling unique stories for each couple, so we aim to go into each wedding with a clear mind and eyes wide open. If we could describe our work in four words they would be the following: Fun. Romantic. Creative. Honest. We’re also suckers for some awesome light.
