Akshay and I first talked in May about his upcoming planned proposal, and it was all planned out and ready to go until yet another new 2020 twist was added into the mix: not coronavirus this time, but the wave of protests and curfews kept his proposal from happening the way he had wanted. That wasn’t going to stop him for long, of course! A few weeks later, he brought his girlfriend Aditi up to San Francisco for a surprise engagement at the Palace of Fine Arts. [ read more … ]
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 … ]
We love it when a plan all comes together for a wonderful result! Preet brought his girlfriend Prabhjit to the Palace of Fine Arts on a sunny October afternoon. Prior to his arrival, a group of his friends had gathered to help set up an cute “marry me” lighted sign and flower petals arranged in the shape of a heart. Thanks to all the help, by the time they arrived, the completed setup looked just perfect. Congrats to P&P and check out their beautiful Palace of Fine Arts sunset proposal in the photos below!
Sometimes, a surprise proposal isn’t a complete, 100% surprise.

I think the anticipation and buildup just makes it even more exciting when the moment finally comes. [ read more … ]
Tracy & Darren are getting married in LA, but since this soon-to-be-bride is from San Francisco, we took a set of engagement photos for them here in the Bay Area. We hit a couple of the best spots around San Francisco, including the Palace of Fine Arts, Potrero Hill, and Baker Beach. [ read more … ]
