Stephanie & David | San Francisco Sunset Engagement Photos

Stephanie & David’s love story began with her waiting in line for coffee one Sunday afternoon with Murphy, her adorable Yorkie. David bumped into them, fell in love with Murphy (who wouldn’t!?) and Stephanie, and the rest is history. So it’s only appropriate that we included some coffee time with the pooch in their engagement session! [ read more … ]

Purbasa & Nava | San Francisco Potrero Hill & Embarcadero Engagement Photos

Purbasa & Nava first met in 2014, not long after she had moved to the SF Bay Area from the midwest. They went on their first date at the Punchline comedy club, and for six months, developed their relationship and enjoyed their time together in the Bay Area — stargazing at Ed Levine County Park, traveling, trying new restaurants, and cooking together. Although Purbasa had to move back to the midwest for work, they kept their long-distance relationship strong. (Further proof that long-distance can work!) [ read more … ]

Ryan & Mia | San Francisco Pier Seven Surprise Engagement Proposal

Ryan & Mia made a day trip from Stockton to San Francisco one beautiful, sunny morning last weekend. Ryan came to propose to his lovely girlfriend, of course, while the unsuspecting Mia thought she was here for an innocuous work event. Ryan and his mom Lisa had put together a very well-done “Day on the Bay” flyer for a work cruise, departing from Pier 7, that they were to attend.

Once they arrived at the wooden pier, Ryan knelt down on one knee and showed her the ring while a small group of onlookers paused to cheer. Mia had the absolute cutest reaction ever — look at the excitement and joy not only on her face, but also expressed by her hands and feet! Congrats you two!

Weston & Laura | Surprise Proposal Photos at San Francisco Pier 7

On a warmly-lit autumn afternoon, this lovely pair took a walk down Pier 7 at the Embarcadero where they had their first date. Weston & Laura now live in Austin, but first met in San Francisco so the city, and this pier especially, hold a special meaning to them.

Weston had prepared a great trip for the two of them — first a trip to Paris, where Laura must have kept wondering, “Is he going to propose? Is he going to do it?”; then a trip to SF where he popped the question (and where she said YES); and finally, a surprise trip to visit her family and share the great news. [ read more … ]

Casey’s Surprise Proposal to Elisse at Pier 7 | San Francisco Embarcadero Engagement Photography

Casey and Elisse are engaged! Woohoo! Casey planned everything ahead of time and we went through the whole proposal scene-by-scene by email before the big day.

Elisse had planned to visit the Ferry building that morning, so to make it all seem natural, we picked Pier 7 to be the perfect location for the proposal. I love how Elisse was completely overwhelmed with excitement and happiness. She didn’t realize we were photographing them the whole time until we jumped out and screamed “congratulations”!
