Dom & Mae | San Francisco Outdoor Elopement Portraits

Dom & Mae said their vows and tied the knot earlier this month with a tiny elopement. And in the midst of this global pandemic, the logistics were actually quite difficult! There was almost no place in the Bay Area to have a ceremony, so they went down to Santa Cruz. Although coronavirus-related restrictions kept me from documenting the ceremony itself, I’m so glad I got the opportunity to meet up with them afterwards for some outdoor elopement portraits in San Francisco and create these memories of their wedding day. Check out a few of the photos below!

Jason & Xiaonan’s San Francisco Oceanside Sunset Engagement Photos

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 … ]

Rudy & Erin’s Golden Gate Bridge Beach Engagement Photos

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! Okay in all seriousness, Rudy and Erin are a really sweet couple. They’re both full of smiles and radiance, and we loved the energy we felt when we first met them. I think this sun-filled Golden Gate Bridge beach engagement shoot really shows their essence perfectly. [ read more … ]

Sahil & Neha’s Half Moon Bay Ritz Carlton Coastal Cliffside Proposal

One week ago, Sahil and Neha made their way down the trail from the Half Moon Bay Ritz Carlton for a coastal cliffside proposal that really could not have been any more perfect. This day was filled to the brim with the unbridled joy and laughter of not just the happy couple (of course), but also their families and even yours truly, the photographers. 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 … ]

Dhruv & Shraddha’s Golden Gate Bridge Beach Engagement Proposal

Dhruv was pretty sneaky… not only did he manage to get his girlfriend Shraddha over to Baker Beach without her suspecting, he also kept a rose hidden on the entire trip over to the beach! As they started to head down to the beach, I saw him very smoothly pull the flower out from hiding and place it into his back pocket for the walk. I really loved how the moment played out — simple but super sweet, with the most adorable “yes” reaction. [ read more … ]
