We had such fun on this engagement session. It was a bit cold, but taking photos around and about where Colette and Kevin spend a lot of their time was great fun. We even took the California cable car up to Nob Hill which is part of their commuting transportation. This e-session was loaded with personal meaning for Colette and Kevin, and I was so pleased to be able to capture their lifestyle with them! Watch out for their Marin Art and Garden Center wedding photos in April!
I just love it when clients bring props for their e-sessions! Christine brought two gigantic balloons and after they successfully got them out of the car (and Scott got over feeling a little sheepish), we had fun running around and showing them off! It was the warmest night of the year in San Francisco. We hopped from Nob Hill to the Palace of Fine Arts, then moved to Chrissy Field and the beach where it was as PACKED as I’ve never seen it before (much to Scott’s horror as he held the balloons for Christine)! I told Christine she had a keeper because she has a guy who carries around huge pink balloons on a crowded beach in San Francisco for her! This marriage is blessed! Looking forward to shooting their wedding!
Such a sweet couple! Cassidy and Brandon got engaged at Ocean Beach so it’s appropriate they chose Ocean Beach for their engagement session! We totally lucked out and had gorgeous weather (as any San Franciscan knows, Ocean Beach can be fiercely cold and foggy). After a few shots in casual clothes, they did a quick wardrobe change and we headed to nearby Surto Baths for a few more shots. We had such fun and I’m looking forward to shooting their November wedding!
Always a thrill when someone in the wedding industry asks me to shoot their wedding! Emilie is the catering director at the Fairmont San Francisco (one of my fave locations!) and she’s getting married! So looking forward to seeing her on her wedding day, but it was fun in the meantime to photograph her Chrissy Field e-session with her sweet fiance! Stay tuned for her wedding pics this summer!
I was so excited that Erica Lewis asked me to photograph her e-session. Erica is a florist and a friend in the industry. Her gorgeous floral designs can be seen on her site at Erica Rose Designs. Erica and Jose are getting married THIS month! Congratulations Erica and Jose!
Sometimes all it takes to make an engagement session extra special is a pop of color, whether its a vibrant accessory or a bright background. Christine and Eugene’s engagement session stands out because this adorable couple brought along huge red balloons — and a killer pair of red heels — to their session. And Susan and Billy’s engagement session was brought to life with the vibrant back-splash of the Oakville Grocery. Be sure to check out these sweet sessions for even more inspiring images!
Jenn and Dario love their little San Francisco neighborhood and even met at a local cafe. It rained on the day of our shoot, but we had fun bopping around in the rain anyway! They were even greeted at the cafe where they met with a glass of champagne! Look for their wedding June of next year!
Any shoot in the bay area at any time of the year can be a windy and cold affair, and Christine and Eugene’s e-session was a blowy one! Of course doing the shoot around the Golden Gate Bridge adds to the wind and fog, but despite it we had such fun! Christine brought some gigantic, gorgeous balloons, which we had a blast shooting while they were blowing like wild in the wind! At one point I thought Christine was going to take off into the bay she’s so petite and the wind was so strong! They also wanted some urban “grit” so we wandered over to some old military bunkers and finished our shoot there. There’s so much to work with in the bay area. What fun! Stay tuned for their Ferry Building wedding which is coming up quickly!
What a fun Napa Valley e-session with Susan and Billy! They live in New York and are getting married soon in Napa Valley, and when they came in for a planning trip, we were able to do an e-session in wine country. Gorgeous weather and great light, and Susan and Billy were a blast to shoot too! Stay tuned for their Carneros Inn wedding!
Vivian and Cliff envisioned an urban city engagement session — the opposite of their upcoming Carmel Valley wedding — so we trekked across the classic backdrops of San Francisco, from the Ferry Building to People’s Pier to the Embarcadero. We even beat the threat of rain and were able to keep the session outside. We had a blast!
