Palace of Fine Arts San Francisco Engagement


Dorothy and Andrew’s gorgeous Palace of Fine Arts engagement session was a celebration of much more than becoming engaged. It was a testament to their strength as a couple and their dedication to one another. After not only surviving but thriving in a long-distance relationship for years, this session was a symbol of their forever growing love for one another.

About the Couple.  Andrew and Dorothy met half a decade ago through mutual friends. They were at a hotel party together when the power went out. They immediately teamed up together and decided to adventure out on the town for the night. Both Dorothy and Andrew admit that there was an immediate attraction for one another. Andrew asked for Dorothy’s number at the end of the night but mistakenly took down the wrong number. After he had sent several texts trying to continue their conversation with no reply, he simply thought that she had lost interest. Dorothy, meanwhile, was wondering why Andrew had not reached out and too thought perhaps he wasn’t interested. It wasn’t until they had another encounter with one another that they realized he had been texting the wrong number that entire time. Once the number was corrected, they talked non-stop, and their friends quickly grew into a relationship. Stay tuned for their wedding post where I’ll tell you how Andrew popped the questions after they dated for over 5 years, with 3 of those years being long distance!

To Dorothy and Andrew- thank you so much for letting me document this precious time in your lives together. I’m so honored to be able to tell your love story through photographs. I had such a blast getting to know you two better and learning about your journey. I am so impressed with how strong you both are as individuals and as a couple. Your story of growing your relationship despite distance and difficulties is very inspiring and I just know that you two will be able to handle anything life throws you! I’m so excited for your wedding this year and can’t wait to witness you two becoming Husband and Wife!
