I met up with Gabrielle & Adam a few days ago for their engagement session and I’m so excited to share some photos! They both enjoy grabbing a drink and chilling together, so to incorporate that into their photos we started off at the Virgin Hotel. The hotel is a a meticulously-decorated, perfectly classy setting for photos, and it actually just opened its doors a couple of months ago. (Thanks Virgin for letting us snap a few photos in your space!)
After that, we headed to Baker Beach to catch the sunset and some views of the waves and Golden Gate Bridge. [ read more … ]
Annie and I flew to the east coast last month for Maylene & Alejandro’s Fairmont Pittsburgh hotel wedding. That weekend marked many “firsts” for us (we had never been to Pennsylvania!), but the biggest one is that it was our first time photographing a close friend’s wedding.

Roy’s Proposal to Claire at the Fairmont Penthouse Balcony | San Francisco Proposal & Engagement Photographer
Over the Fourth of July weekend, Roy and Claire came all the way from Singapore to visit San Francisco. The pair had first met at the Fairmont Singapore where Roy works as a hotelier, so it was fitting for him to propose to his girlfriend atop the balcony of the Fairmont San Francisco‘s penthouse suite. On the morning before they were to leave the city, Roy used “touring the hotel” as his cover for leading Claire up to the gorgeous penthouse unit and onto the balcony with a stunning view of the San Francisco skyline. He pulled out his ring, dropped to his knees, and popped the question. Of course, she said yes! [ read more … ]
