While there are countless beautiful settings to document Los Angeles engagement photos and video, there is no place more representative of life in 2020 than our own home. I recently photographed and filmed Trey and Anna Maria in their home to capture the feel of a typical day in quarantine life.

In the grind of our day to day, it is easy to overlook the beauty in the simple moments of life—steam from the shower warming up the bathroom, the smell of drip coffee brewing, the taste of fresh squeezed orange juice. These moments are ever more special when experienced with a loved one and the joy that this adorable couple have while going through their everyday routine really shines through in this video.

The cinematic look of the video really brings out how extraordinary these ordinary moments are. I am so proud of what my team and I were able to produce with this photo shoot. It is gratifying to know that Trey and Anna Maria will be able to look back at this video years from now and remember the magic in their everyday.

Having a beautiful couple and a gorgeous, light-filled home definitely made my job easier, but photographers, you know that post-production can still take a lot of time and energy! In this case, editing was a breeze using the new Refined x Caroline Tran presets. We collaborated with Refined Co. to create presets to help photographers easily achieve our signature bright and dreamy look.

Our package features 3 new variations of our popular presets, Patina and Pure, as well as our newest one, Vibrant. Each preset has 3 levels to match a variety of lighting situations, allowing you to achieve the look you want. Also included in the package are 2 variations of black and white film-inspired presets, and a sepia tone preset. You’ll also receive a version of these presets that will work on your mobile device for quick and convenient edits. Visit Refined Co. to purchase. I’d love to see what you create!  #refinedxcarolinetran
