Monica & Chris’s Lovers Lane, San Francisco engagement session threw both me and the couple by surprise. We all departed our homes in the East Bay, were temps where in the 80s, and arrived in the city, only to be greeted by a windy, foggy, chilly 50 degrees! It was like we had left the […]
Briana & Cuit’s Indian Rock Park, Berkeley engagement rocked some major Joshua Tree vibes. The towering, stacked boulders, complete with the city skyline in the distance was the perfect backdrop for their session. The couple came dressed to kill and what resulted was some truly stunning photographs! About The Couple Briana and Cuit met as […]
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.
We got so lucky at Jacqueline and Cros’s Sutro Baths San Francisco engagement. Usually this location is bitter cold and so windy from being exposed on the coast. However we had such still wind that allowed us to get some truly one-of-a-kind shots over the water. I wish I could have weather like this every time I visited this beautiful location!
We just about missed it! The gorgeous almond blossom season, that is. A few of my photographer friends and I tried to squeeze in one last blossom session, and were so shocked when we pulled up to see the once stark white and pink orchards were now filled with vibrant green leaves. Our warm winter meant a super short flowering season here in Northern California, which we were hoping would last for at least another week! Thankfully we located a row of trees that still had a few of those pretty white and pink blooms and decided to make the most of it.
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!
Kathryn and Ryan’s sweet hilltop engagement at Pleasanton Ridge Regional Park was a blast from the past. The pair carefully picked this location due to its special meaning to them. It was a place they had spent time together in their early years of dating. It was so sweet that we were now able to photograph them as fiancé and fiancée here amongst the rolling hills and giant trees.
Josie and Sammy’s Lovers Lane engagement session in the Presidio district of San Francisco had all the enchanted forest vibes! The two came dressed to kill in a gorgeous blush pink, floor length dress with lace detail, and crisp light blue button up that coordinated perfectly. The two sauntered, twirled, and snuggled up together inside the iconic tree lined lane.
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!
Jamie & Abe’s sweet engagement session was a light filled dream! Together at Lover’s Lane in San Francisco, they snuggled, danced, and laughed among the eucalyptus trees, golden sun streaming in around them. Jamie wore a stunning blush Lulus dress with Abe in a sharp white button up and blue slacks. Together they absolutely glowed the entire session!
