Erik & Sherrie’s Cessna “Emergency Landing” Airport Runway Proposal

|
October 2, 2019

I think Erik wins the award for the most meticulously-planned and perfectly-executed proposal we’ve ever seen. There were just so many moving pieces: the friends who brought Sherrie along for the airplane ride, the airport where they landed, Sherrie’s boss who was in on the plan all along, and even yours truly, the photographers. Erik quietly worked it all out, rehearsing the flight path a few times and juggling multiple unplanned schedule changes, and the result was the sweetest and most perfect proposal.

Shabeg & Nav’s Pigeon Point Lighthouse Engagement Photos

Kim & Raoul’s Beach Sunset Engagement Session

|
September 30, 2019

Kim & Raoul met in one of my favorite cities in the world — Vancouver! Maybe I had even bumped into them unknowingly many years back when I lived there too 😀 For their engagement photos, we hit up the very distinctly San Francisco location of Baker Beach for their beach sunset engagement session. There’s a great amount of variety here, with woods, beach, and a Golden Gate Bridge view all within a few minutes’ walk. It was super empty that day, and it was as if they had the whole beach to themselves!
