Krysten & Kevin’s Beach Paint Fight Engagement Photos | Bay Area Engagement Photographer

Originally from Texas, Krysten came to California and fell in love with Kevin, the first cowboy that she met here. Before moving back to Texas, they decided to take some engagement photos here at Thornton Beach. David and I had a ton of fun shooting with Krysten & Kevin and we think the photos really show who they truly are as a couple: some football on the beach followed by a super fun powder paint fight, a western theme with a cowboy hat and boots, and finally some gorgeous ocean sunset photos. Such a sweet and energetic couple!

Jizhe & Jin’s Stanford and San Francisco Pre-Wedding Photos | 旧金山湾区婚纱摄影师

We recently had the pleasure to work with Jizhe and Jin for their pre-wedding photos. We started off at Stanford University, where Jin goes to school, and a few of their friends even came to keep them company and cheer them on. Then we headed to San Francisco to shoot at both ends of the Golden Gate Bridge, at Crissy Field, Cavallo Point, and the Marin Headlands. Although these spots were packed with crowds of people that weekend, there was nothing some strategic shooting and editing couldn’t fix 🙂 We got a ton of great photos!

Merry Christmas everyone!

Christian’s Surprise Proposal to Daena + Mini E-Session | Santa Cruz Engagement Photography

Christian proposed to Daena at the end of the pier at the Municipal Wharf in Santa Cruz and of course she said YES!! Before the exciting moment happened, we followed them around the boardwalk like two sneaky paparazzi!

Christian and Daena just moved to LA a few months ago, and lived in the Peninsula area before that. Christian picked the wharf because of their personal history here. He prepared a two-day “scavenger hunt” for Daena that included some little stories and clues to different spots in the area, led her to some of the boardwalk amusement park rides, and finally, took her to the wharf where he popped the question. Isn’t that sweet?!! He even hand folded all the clues into three different shapes! We ended this perfect proposal session with a killer sunset. Congrats Christian and Daena!!

Aubrianna & Daniel’s Save-the-Date Photos | Crissy Field Bay Area Engagement Photographer

We had the chance to shoot some beautiful engagement photos for Aubrianna and Daniel in front of the Golden Gate Bridge. They travelled from Las Vegas and we wanted to be sure to give them some of the best views in San Francisco, which is a special city to them as it is where Aubrianna’s dad was born. Luckily, the fog was completely cleared when we started to shoot and the sun was setting right behind the bridge, giving us a dramatic golden-orange sunset! [ read more … ]
