I feel like some photo shoots are already over just as we’re barely getting started — and this was definitely one of them. Tegan and Joseph met up with me at the Ruby Hill Winery (aka Casa Real) last week for some fall vineyard engagement photos. The autumn colors in the vineyards are absolutely beautiful this time of year, and the golden hour sunset light falling on T&J was perfect. I had such a great time with this sweet, lighthearted couple that I hardly felt like I was working. [ read more … ]
I don’t shoot a lot of morning engagement sessions… but when I do, I always love the results. The morning light can be some of the best of the day, and it’s also when San Francisco is quietest, allowing for a more private photo shoot with clean, empty backgrounds and all the focus right where it should be: on the couple.

It’s the best feeling when I’m at an engagement photo shoot and it feels like I’m just hanging out with a couple of friends and celebrating their love. (Some may call it third wheeling, but I call it a normal day at work 😛 ) Constance & Kevin decided to have their engagement session at Rodeo Beach, which was an awesome choice — I had such a fun time exploring the coastline with them.

Shirley & Timothy are getting married next year in Pleasanton, and for their engagement photos, we visited the Palace of Fine Arts together a couple weeks ago. It’s a classic San Francisco location, perfect for photos with a little bit of variety, especially with the golden fall light pouring down on them. I especially loved the cute little moments when Timothy would goof off a bit to get Shirley to giggle, and I can’t wait to see these two again in a year!
Last week, we met up with Kaila and Peter at two special spots for their engagement photos in Tiburon: the San Francisco Yacht Club for some photos in the marina and on the family boat, and at Old St. Hilary’s Church, which is a cute little chapel situated atop a beautiful grassy hill. Sailing has always been a big part of Kaila and her family, so it made a lot of sense to shoot at the yacht club. And now it’s something the two of them enjoy together 🙂 [ read more … ]
