Both originally Bay Area natives, Andrew and Deirdra first met in San Francisco and their relationship blossomed here. The next chapter in their story began last year when Andrew proposed while they were in London during a trip across Europe, and we feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to join them on their wedding day a few weeks ago at the Wild Oak Saddle Club!
The morning began at an Airbnb where Deirdra got ready with her mom and bridesmaids, and at the Flamingo where Andrew and the guys (and Lady, that cute forever puppy you see in the photos) went through their preparations. Deirdra had a not-so-little surprise for the girls: they’d be getting a ride on Rosie, the big red trolley, and they had a blast together! But first, a quick detour. Deirdra stopped by the Flamingo for a surprise first look with Andrew. It was a very sweet moment between the two of them… or three if you count Rosie 🙂 [ read more … ]
Where should I start? Emily and Max are two lovebirds who are just sooooo in love with each other, and I think they must’ve taken up modeling as their secret second career, because they were so easy and comfortable in front of my cameras. Emily really loves the beach vibe, so for their engagement session we went to the Half Moon Bay Coastal Trail. The trail itself is great, and it also leads to a secluded beach right at the bottom of the Ritz Carlton, a perfect spot for a Half Moon Bay sunset engagement shoot. [ read more … ]
Treasure Island has always been one of my favorite places for photos, yet it’s often underappreciated and overlooked. It offers a beautiful view of both the San Francisco city skyline and the Bay Bridge, and the sunset colors are just amazing. Anoushka & Chris are getting married next year in Greece (what a dream!), and to capture some flavor from their home city of San Francisco, they decided to take a set of Treasure Island engagement photos.

Sindy & Gabe wanted some night-time Embarcadero pier engagement photos, so we scheduled their session right through the sunset so we could be there after nightfall. I loved their interactions with each other – so warm and intimate, and such a joy to photograph. As the colorful dusk sky faded and the San Francisco cityscape started twinkling with lights, we walked down the pier for a couple of really special night photos, and I’m excited to share some of them with you!
Lauren & Jeff did a loooooot of homework before our engagement session. (Okay, it was mostly Lauren.) She had looked through a lot of our past engagement shoots and had her eye on some Sutro Baths shots, especially those beautiful reflections that can be seen in the still pools of water. But there was one problem (actually many problems): Sutro Baths is always cold, windy, and crowded… and often foggy on top of that. [ read more … ]
