Mischelle & Ryan picked two of my favorite San Francisco locations for their beautiful engagement session- Lovers Lane and Palace of Fine Arts. Not only are these locations gorgeous and iconic, but they also held special meaning to this couple. During their relationship, they had visited both of these locations several times together and made sweet memories exploring. Not only that, but Ryan’s parents actually had their wedding photos taken at the Palace! This rich history combined with some beautiful sun made for a gorgeous session to remember!
Mischelle and Ryan recently celebrated a decade of love together! They met during their first year of college. Ryan was at UC Davis, while Mischelle was at Napa State College. They did the whole long distance thing for a good while from 2011 – 2014, then again from 2015-2018 (Mischelle moved to Southern California twice!). It definitely made them stronger as a couple, and they’ve grown and learned so much within the past 10 years together. Ryan proposed during an epic Hawaiian vacation together. He popped the question atop Haleakala in Maui, after the most beautiful sunrise. Mischelle is an oncology nurse and Ryan is a police officer.
Mischelle and Ryan- thank you so much for having me capture your beautiful engagement session at Lovers Lane & Palace of Fine Arts! I had a blast in the lane and at the palace with you two! It was a pleasure to spend time with you guys and learn more about you. Mischelle- you are such a trooper for braving the windy, cold weather and rough terrain in your heels! You posed with such grace and beauty despite these obstacles. Ryan- You totally nailed these poses with Mischelle, and I am so thankful for your positive and fun attitude! I don’t normally work with such amazing gentlemen since the ladies are usually much more into taking photos then the men, so thank you for being such a joy! Ya’ll are such a sweet couple and I simply can not wait until your Fall 2020 wedding later this year!
