LOVE is just a word until someone comes along and gives it meaning …

We’re starting Valentine’s Day off with this adorable E*shoot from Callaway Gable Photography! And we want to join every other wedding blogger in the world to salute couples eagerly planning their own weddings ~ as well as everyone else who just happens to be in love!

Joya and Emre are getting married on the beach in Palos Verdes, CA. So for their engagement, they decided to go inland with a shoot that celebrates their love for Los Angeles, Hollywood and California. Additionally, they are both from out of state and work in television, so they wanted their guests to see pictures of sunshine and Hollywood as these images are being used for her Save the Date Invites. Joya made the signs, and we brought the heart chairs. These pictures were shot in Griffith Park and in Hollywood, right below the Hollywood sign. An interesting note on the “Californian” sign: There is a seldom-used little park by Griffith Park where the City of Los Angeles maintains a storage yard. In this yard lays an old rusted neon sign from the early part of the 20th Century that reads “Hotel Californian.” This is all that remains of what was once a modern hotel in the booming hotel district of MacArthur Park. The City of Los Angeles is keeping the sign here until the day the area is redeveloped. and the sign is hopefully placed onto the new building. Until that day comes, it will serve as a really cool backdrop for the beginning of Joya and Emre’s engagement session. – Callaway Gable Photography
