I love it when my couples have fun with their engagement shoots. We live in a city where we have the greatest food, so naturally our engagement session revolved around eating, eating, and more eating. Hayes Valley in San Francisco is a great hangout spot with lots of great food places and charming boutiques, which made for the perfect backdrop for Jana & Darren. Looking forward to celebrating the big day with you both!
I sometimes take for granted living in beautiful California where we have beautiful scenery and gorgeous light. My couple wanted a location that was woodsy so I found this groove of eucalyptus trees in Marin County. We complimented this with the sun-kissed coastline at Rodeo Beach. This type of scenery and light lends itself to shooting film. My beautiful couple Steph and Bennett were such a treat to photograph. They are so beautiful in front of my camera as well as beautiful human beings.
I’ve had the pleasure of working with and getting to know Lorraine in the wedding business these past couple of years. I have always admired her professionalism and hard work at weddings, so it was refreshing to see a different side of Lorraine while photographing her engagement session. I love how tender Lorraine and Erick are with each other, just going with it and having a good time in front of my camera. The white marble of San Francisco City Hall made for the perfect black canvas for Lorraine’s stunning printed dress by Monique Lhuillier.
