Leah & Alex // Tilden Park Engagement Session

I haven’t posted in so long! My wedding is less than 2 weeks away and things are in high gear. Wedding planning is intense. I have a new appreciation for what my lovely bride and grooms go through to get to the big day.

But I thought I’d take a little break from seating chart arrangements and menu cards to post this beautiful engagement session.

Leah & Alex are such big fun personalities and had so many ideas for their engagement shoot. We had a gorgeous day at Tilden Park. Beautiful rays of light streaming through the trees. I loved every bit of this shoot, especially a sunset paint fight! So much fun. =)

Brett & Taylor // San Francisco Engagement Session

True fact: I’m a major homebody. As much as I enjoy going out and discovering new things/people/places and having adventures, I really REALLY love sitting at home with a good book. Or watching a marathon of TV shows (I just finished a Good Wife kick!). So a big benefit of being a photographer is that it really gets me out of the house. A lot of the fun, beautiful places I’ve discovered in San Fransisco, I’ve found through my clients.

I’d only visited North Beach one or two times before, and never gone to Coit Tower at all (I know, I’m a bad SF tourist!). So when Brett & Taylor wanted to do a shoot in this lovely area of the city, I was excited to roam the area. It’s such a unique little neighborhood.

Love this last one. Gorgeous light!

Valerie & Jason // Engagement Session

I love dogs.

LOVE.

I don’t think I can emphasis this enough. So it’s always such a treat when my couples bring along their pups to photoshoots, or even to the wedding. Valerie and Jason brought along Maverick, this cute little guy.

And we had a great time romping through the lush areas around Sutro Heights.

Then we headed over to Golden Gate Park where the sun decided to peep through the fog.

Favorite image from the shoot. Just loving how peaceful and light-filled this moment is, and that’s so perfectly in tune with Valerie & Jason’s warm personalities.

Sunnie & Cory // San Francisco Engagement Session

Roaming around the Presidio on a foggy San Francisco morning. I think to live in San Francisco, at some point you just have to throw up your arms in defeat and just embrace the fog. Love the fog. Let the fog become your friend. And always carry a spare jacket.

Sunnie & Cory took me to some of their favorite spots around the Presidio and obligingly snuggled and laughed and shared stories while we explored the area.

Love Sunnie’s bright pink top against the dewy green backdrop.

This was a special little spot to Sunnie & Cory because this is where they got engaged! I love shooting at locations that are meaningful to my couples.

Not a morning person by any stretch of the imagination, but an early morning spent in the company of good people, in a beautiful location, making pretty pictures? That I can definitely do.
