Steve and Annie traveled all the way from Florida to visit the Golden State. These two high school sweethearts started dating 8 years ago, and he had something very special planned for their trip across the country. He surprised her not only with a beautiful sunset proposal at Baker Beach, but also brought with him both of their entire families! Together with their families, they celebrated and popped a bottle of champagne, and even got an impromptu flash mob from a yoga group! What a day.
When Anna Irene approached me before they got engaged, I laughed knowing exactly how she felt - so ready to start a life with the one she knew would be her forever. Only a few weeks later, I got the text "HE PROPOSED!!" and so we set out to capture their joyful, whimsical love with an engagement shoot just outside of the South Bay in a beautiful open reserve in Cupertino.
These two East Coast lovers had just moved into the foggy city of San Francisco a few months ago, and wanted to document their new home with an engagement session! With a fall wedding set in their hometown of Philadelphia, they wanted to catch a bit of that San Francisco magic with an in-home shoot followed by adventuring into the crashing waves and rocky shore of Sutro Baths.
Little did I know that one random cup of coffee offered to me as I was studying for my first master's class would lead to me getting to capture such a special moment for Michael and Audrey! That random cup of coffee led to him joining our college ministry, meeting my now-husband, and then some major bromance over coffee. Last Saturday we had the joy of getting to watch him propose to his girlfriend at Castello di Amorosa, a beautiful castle winery in Calistoga, CA. What an amazing, God-loving couple they are - we are so excited to see what their future holds!
Alisha and Greg knew they wanted a redwoods engagement session from the start, so we trekked out to Redwood Regional Park in Oakland. While most of the trails didn't have the forest vibe we wanted, we found a beautiful patch of redwoods growing just right next to the parking lot. With the sun just dipping beyond the horizon, Alisha and Greg were troopers as they held each other tight to keep each other warm. Check out the rest of their engagement session!
When Sonia approached me and said that they wanted to do a San Francisco engagement session in a coffee shop, I was already in love. Sending over a plethora of beautiful coffee shop interiors over the course of week, we decided to shoot at The Mill. Sonia and Ankit - long distance lovers from SF to SD - were just so silly, poking fun at each other at every turn making for the greatest giggles and laughs. Here's a snapshot of their session!
We connected with Courtney & Jackson (who were recently engaged!) through a few online photography groups, and just had to meet up! Fellow travelers, photographers, boba addicts, Christ followers, and former long distance lovers, we immediately clicked with these this adorable couple. We laughed and told stories over coffee, reminiscing over college days, sharing our bucket list adventures, and looking ahead to what the future could hold. Who knows, next time you could see us all in Iceland!
