Just a few weeks before moving to San Francisco from the east coast, Max & Kara flew in for a visit over the long Fourth of July weekend. Little did she know that he had a Golden Gate Bridge surprise engagement all planned out for her, complete with champagne on the beach… just in time to make San Francisco their special place before their move! Kara was so excited she could hardly contain her jubilation, and Max was just relieved to have the weight of the surprise and anticipation finally off his shoulders, haha. Congrats to the happy couple, and check out a few photos below!

As fate would have it, the pandemic shut the entire country down shortly afterwards… but unlike many of our other couples, Zoe & Alex managed to plan their Oceano Hotel wedding around the pandemic [ read more … ]
After seven years and 300 proposals, we still haven’t even come close to discovering all the good spots in San Francisco — and exploring new places is one of the best parts of our job! Kirill introduced us to a new location recently, a lookout point at Mount Davidson that he had been to many times before, and we were very excited to hike up there for our first time. There’s a sweeping view of San Francisco, the downtown skyline, Sutro Tower, and even the Bay, and it’s a true hidden gem of San Francisco. [ read more … ]
This photo shoot has been a loooooong time in the making! We first met with Scarlet & Anthony at the end of 2019 — back in the Before Times when it was still normal to meet people face-to-face — and together we happily talked about their May 2020 wedding day. Well, we all know what 2020 brought us 🙁 So we rescheduled to September, because surely a pandemic couldn’t possibly last an entire summer… right? [ read more … ]
Jayme is very much a planner — in fact, we were in touch more than a month before her proposal to talk about locations and ideas, and after deciding on the ideal spot, she even scouted it out just to make sure it was the perfect place. On the big day, she and her girlfriend Nicole arrived exactly on time, neatly dressed, and walked over to the spot that will now be a special one to them forever. [ read more … ]
