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 … ]
MacLane and Amy went for a bit of a walk last week, ending at the Land’s End Labyrinth where he had a little surprise for her… in the form of a beautiful and very unique engagement ring!

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 … ]
If I had to shoot at only one place and time of day for the rest of my life, I’d choose the Sutro Baths sunset in a heartbeat. The light there is absolutely incredible, especially as we head into the fall season, and it’s actually quite different from day to day. But even after shooting here a hundred times before, I was still really nervous when Andrew wanted this spot for his proposal [ read more … ]
