Parinaz & Afraaz’s San Francisco Beach Engagement Photos

If there’s one couple who has their deck of cards in perfect order, it would be Afraaz & Parinaz. They first met just ten weeks ago — yes, ten weeks — and in that brief time, they met each others’ parents, got engaged, started planning for their wedding next year in India, and found us for their San Francisco beach engagement photos.

Jeff & Leslie | An Epic Proposal on Top of Montara Mountain

Though we live only 15 minutes from the base of Montara Mountain, last weekend was our very first time hiking all the way up. At 1800 feet, the peak of the mountain offers a stunning view of not only Montara and the beautiful mountains and rolling hills that surround the area, but you can also see San Francisco, Half Moon Bay, Pacifica, and the Pacific coastline.

On a sunny Saturday afternoon, Jeff & Leslie headed up Montara Mountain, taking a different route from the familiar trails they had gone up many times in the past. Just before reaching the summit, Jeff spotted us waiting in a clearing with a sweeping, unobstructed view, and he led Leslie over. [ read more … ]

Shervil & Douglas’s Point Lobos Engagement Photos

Shervil & Douglas came to California all the way from Singapore for their engagement photos! Originally, we had planned on visiting some vineyards up in the Napa Valley, but had to make a last-minute switch due to the tragic fires. I loved how plan B turned out though! We went to Point Lobos near Carmel-by-the-Sea, and got some great portraits in the woods and at the beach at sunset. I’m excited to share some of their photos!

Frances and Chris’s Ocean Hillside Engagement Photos | Marin Wedding Photographer

Frances and Chris were such a sweet couple! They met in college and moved to San Francisco together a few years ago, and Chris proposed less than a month ago!

For the engagement session, we started off right where they got engaged, in the Marin Headlands overlooking Rodeo Beach and the Pacific Ocean. The endless weeks of winter rain this year meant that when it came time for us to shoot, there were rolling hills with endless fields of flowers waiting for us in every direction! [ read more … ]

Jeremy & Nicole’s Pacific Cliffside Engagement Proposal | Pacifica Photographer

Being avid hikers, Jeremy and Nicole took advantage of their trip to the Bay Area to find some new spots to explore. The Linda Mar Beach/Pacifica State Beach is one of my favorite spots around here, so I’m really glad Jeremy liked my suggestion! It’s a pretty easy trail which goes up along a cliff facing the Pacific Ocean and offers beautiful views of the beach and ocean down below. Jeremy led his future wife to an overlook at the edge of the cliff before dropping down on one knee, giving them a beautiful backdrop for the proposal. [ read more … ]
