Palace of Fine Arts & Ina Coolbrith San Francisco Engagement


Sammi and Kevin’s magical engagement session brought us to the Roman-feeling Palace of Fine Arts and the gorgeous cityscape view at Ina Coolbrith park in San Francisco. The pair arrived looking so sharp in a beautiful, flowy pink gown and sharp sport coat and slacks. Their second location involved a quick outfit change and some super fun oversized balloons! Together they laughed, twirled, and sauntered under the setting sun during our session that will forever be worth remembering!

About the Couple

Sammi and Kevin are both originally from San Francisco, but met a little over eight years ago as undergraduate students in San Diego. Kevin actually lived down the hall from Sammi and was friend with her roommate. Naturally, it didn’t take long for Kevin to notice Sammi and soon he couldn’t stop thinking about her! They got together just a short time after developing a friendship, and have been together ever since. Sammi and Kevin have since returned to the city where Sammi landed her dream from at UCSF after successfully completing her pharmacy residency. Kevin is a successful entrepreneur with his own business! Stay tuned for their wedding post when I reveal the super sweet way Kevin popped the question! Hint: it involves a funny TSA story that resulted in a very long and awkward flight to their destination.

To Sammi & Kevin

Sammi and Kevin: thank you again for allowing me to capture your sweet engagement session at Palace of Fine Arts & Ina Coolbrith Park! I had so much fun photographing you two in these gorgeous locations! You two came dressed so perfectly, then add in how photogenic you guys are naturally, and we created some of my new favorite photos! It was so nice chatting with you two and learning more about you and your relationship. Sammi- thank you so much for being a champ in those sleeveless dresses despite it being so cold and windy out! Kevin- your positive attitude was such a ray of sunshine during our session. While it’s common for the ladies to be in high spirits, it’s not often I also get the male partner to be as cheerful as well! Haha! It’s very clear that you two are totally in love and I could not be more excited for your wedding day!

Thank you!
