I met up with Gabrielle & Adam a few days ago for their engagement session and I’m so excited to share some photos! They both enjoy grabbing a drink and chilling together, so to incorporate that into their photos we started off at the Virgin Hotel. The hotel is a a meticulously-decorated, perfectly classy setting for photos, and it actually just opened its doors a couple of months ago. (Thanks Virgin for letting us snap a few photos in your space!)
After that, we headed to Baker Beach to catch the sunset and some views of the waves and Golden Gate Bridge. [ read more … ]
It’s always great to have couples who don’t quite take themselves too seriously. Laura Beth & Andrew are a wonderful couple who just can’t stop smiling and laughing with each other. They’re cute and perfect together — and it’s the candid laughs and real interactions that I loved so much about this session. And we still got plenty of romantic portraits, like the ones you’ll see below 🙂 The golden sunset and textured skies certainly didn’t disappoint either! Take a look at some of the highlights from their engagement shoot!
One of the best parts about my job, second to getting to know so many wonderful couples and learn their stories, is visiting new places! Sycamore Grove Park isn’t even far from home, and if you were driving by you might think it’s just another park — but inside, it’s absolutely wonderful for photos! I’m thrilled I got to spend an afternoon at this beautiful park that Liz & Paul picked for their engagement photos. [ read more … ]
Bruce and Hannah are cute, lovey, and total goofballs. We felt like the two of us had a lot in common with them (mostly the goofy part), and I think it helped make for a perfect engagement shoot! We started off at Gott’s Roadside at the Ferry Building, as food is a big part of their lives and they often like to spend time with each other there. (Side note: the garlic fries there are sooooooo good!) We kept it super casual and had a lot of fun, and I love the way their silly personalities light up in these. [ read more … ]
We were beyond happy when we heard from Teryn and David a few months after their wedding, telling us that they were expecting an addition to the family! Fast forward to a few months later, we met them at one of our favorite spots, the Arastradero Preserve, for their maternity photos in Palo Alto. Oh my gosh did Teryn look stunning as usual, with that cute baby bump to remind us little Maxwell will be here in a couple of months! [ read more … ]
