We ventured into a new spot for the first time to create this unique set of beach & tree tunnel engagement photos for Zoe and Alex, and we loved it! Half Moon Bay might be best known for its beaches and ocean, but it actually has a lot of variety to offer. There’s a little tree tunnel just minutes away from the beach, and these two locations were a perfect combination of different settings for an engagement shoot. [ 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 … ]
Where should I start? Emily and Max are two lovebirds who are just sooooo in love with each other, and I think they must’ve taken up modeling as their secret second career, because they were so easy and comfortable in front of my cameras. Emily really loves the beach vibe, so for their engagement session we went to the Half Moon Bay Coastal Trail. The trail itself is great, and it also leads to a secluded beach right at the bottom of the Ritz Carlton, a perfect spot for a Half Moon Bay sunset engagement shoot. [ read more … ]
5/20 is a special day for many Chinese couples (it sounds like “I love you” in Mandarin), and Yan made sure to lock down that date with us several months in advance to capture this special moment between him and his girlfriend Min. He put a lot of thought into choosing the perfect spot, especially since the weather wasn’t looking the best that weekend.
When the time came, he and two of his friends concocted a story to get Min out to the Half Moon Bay Ritz Carlton for the surprise proposal, and they choreographed it perfectly. He led her to an overlook above the beach and coastline, and at just the right moment, his friends started playing music from a speaker that had been concealed in an inconspicuous shopping bag. We loved Min’s overjoyed reaction, and all the happy moments following the proposal. [ read more … ]
