Czarina & Darrell | San Francisco Colorful Smoke Bomb Engagement Photos

March 5, 2019

Czarina & Darrell had lots of fun photo ideas for their engagement session. We’ve been wanting to do some colorful smoke bomb engagement photos for a looooong time now, and we finally got that chance last weekend. They also brought along some cute signs, beautifully made by their friend who actually accompanied us on the shoot and was a huge help (thanks Jan!)!

For the smoke grenades, we started by setting off a few to quite literally “test the winds,” and then had some fun with the rest of them. Their wedding theme colors will be blue and purple, and the smoke grenades of those colors made a stunningly deep and rich backdrop for them. Czarina and Darrell had such a great time with these, and I love looking at the photos and seeing how much fun they’re having 🙂

For the more traditional half of their engagement photos, we hiked down the Batteries to Bluffs Trail, where there was a gorgeous view of the ocean and the Golden Gate Bridge under soft, perfect lighting. The two of them were so natural yet composed, like they do this every day 😛

This happy couple is getting married in November, and I’m looking forward to an even more fun wedding!
