Oakland Engagement Photos


It’s hard to imagine a big, beautiful forest of giant redwoods smack in the middle of a bustling Bay Area city. We found such a gem of a spot for Lisa and Patrick’s sweet Oakland engagement photos located in the Joaquin Miller Park. Lisa brought along her cute pup Jeffrey and even dressed him in a matching bow tie!

About The Couple

Lisa and Patrick are both born and raised in the Bay Area. They met as most modern couples do now- online. They had their first date at a coffee shop and really hit it off. So much so that they ended up chatting for several hours! Lisa is very much bonded to her adorable pup, Jeffrey, and told Patrick (half joking, but mostly half serious) that Jeffrey had to like him or else it wouldn’t work out. Thankfully Jeffrey is a very good boy who loves everybody! Patrick was nervous to meet Jeffrey with this added pressure, but they immediately became fast friends!

Lisa said she knew Patrick was the one about two months into dating. They are both easy going and have the same sense of humor, so their relationship blossomed so naturally. Lisa said everything felt easy and right- like how it’s supposed to be. Stay tuned for Lisa & Patrick’s 2021 wedding post, where I’ll dish more about how Patrick asked for Lisa’s hand in marriage!

Lisa & Patrick & Jeffrey

I had such a blast with you guys at your Oakland engagement photo session! Lisa, you looked like an absolute princess when you twirled in your gorgeous sky blue gown. Patrick, you were such a natural and the dip pose, I was seriously impressed! And Jeffrey, I still can’t get over your handsome matching bow tie. Thank you for being such a good boy for your photos!

If this is the magic we were able to capture on your engagement session, then I seriously could not be more excited to see ya’ll again for your wedding day! I pray the remainder of 2020 is a peaceful one for you two and your families, and that 2021 is the best year yet! Congrats again on your engagement you two! And thanks again for the incredibly sweet and beautiful camera cookies!
