Just over a year ago, we quietly hid in the (figurative) bushes as Jason and Xiaonan took a walk through the quiet and sheltered Muir Woods, until they ended up on one of the wooden bridges where he proposed (and where, of course, she said yes!). They decided to do something a little different and have an oceanside sunset engagement shoot, out in the open, under a warm sunset sky with the fresh ocean breeze all around them. [ read more … ]
As California starts to open back up from its coronavirus-induced shutdown, we’ve started getting back to work with engagement shoots, with social distancing of course — gone are the days when we could greet our couples with a hug! Brian & Katie’s engagement session was our first after being shut down for over two months, and we are so excited to share.
We met up at Stow Lake in Golden Gate Park to catch the sun just as its golden rays were ducking behind the hills [ read more … ]
It was love at first sight for me. When he first stepped through that door, I just couldn’t keep my eyes off of him. Yes, that’s right, this giant fluffball Benji is an absolute heart-stealer!

Indeed, their happiness was just so contagious that I teared up a bit! (But, I quickly remembered that I needed to be able to see through the lens.) [ read more … ]
Kirby Cove is among one of the lesser-known spots with a view of the Golden Gate Bridge. It’s wonderfully hidden and secluded, and as a result, it’s a quiet and private area perfect for a proposal. And on a beautiful, sunny afternoon last weekend, Bucky brought his girlfriend Lindsay down the trail to this spot for their perfect Kirby Cove surprise proposal. I think Lindsay’s reaction was one of the cutest I’ve ever seen… just look at the way she’s looking at her new fiancé 🙂 [ read more … ]
