Kim & Raoul met in one of my favorite cities in the world — Vancouver! Maybe I had even bumped into them unknowingly many years back when I lived there too 😀 For their engagement photos, we hit up the very distinctly San Francisco location of Baker Beach for their beach sunset engagement session. There’s a great amount of variety here, with woods, beach, and a Golden Gate Bridge view all within a few minutes’ walk. It was super empty that day, and it was as if they had the whole beach to themselves!
I got to first meet Emily and Josh just two days before their San Francisco City Hall ceremony, at Emily’s best friend’s wedding where she was a bridesmaid. (And of course they returned the favor — you can see Jess & Jason in some of these ceremony photos!) They’re a cute couple with lots of love for each other and for those around them, and you can see that the atmosphere during their ceremony was appropriately lighthearted and fun. [ read more … ]
Shaheen had a very romantic plan for his Baker Beach sunset proposal. He brought his girlfriend Vanessa for a romantic stroll along the beach, and then the two enjoyed a relaxing view of the California sunset together. [ read more … ]
While in town for the long Memorial Day weekend, Oscar had planned to surprise his girlfriend Darlene with a very beautiful ring and a marriage proposal. I really loved his setup: simple and elegant, just enough to add a bit of an accent to an already beautiful bluff overlooking Pelican Point Beach. [ read more … ]
Sometimes, I get home from a shoot and absolutely can’t wait to look through all the photos… and then I can’t decide on my favorites because every last one of them is my favorite! I’m simply in love with Maria & Max’s San Francisco oceanside engagement shoot and I loved every minute we spent together. They’re such a wonderful couple and exactly like the photos show: lively, playful, and totally in sync with one another. [ read more … ]
