Coastal views are gorgeous and all, but when the fog rolls in unexpectedly and the wind is high speed, it's important to have a back up plan for an engagement shoot. Luckily, we are spoiled in San Francisco and if one location doesn't work out then chances are, we aren't far from another lovely spot. Thank you Golden Gate park for shielding us from the harsh wind and cold fog. J+G's engagement shoot was so much fun and I am so excited to photograph their upcoming wedding. Enjoy the pics!
San Francisco Engagement Shoot
Engagement shoots in the springtime are my favorite, especially in San Francisco. Golden Gate park is showing off it's spring flowers and everything is crisp and green. I did choose probably the WINDIEST DAY EVER to take Haley and Justin's engagement photos, but they were such good sports about it that I would probably do it all over again (ok maybe with slightly less wind.) What I love about their engagement session is that you can really tell how much fun they have together. Their relationship really shines in their laughter and affection. I'm so excited to photograph their wedding in September. I have a feeling I might be reaching for my tissues during their ceremony.
You can usually find me at the Sutro Baths carrying multiple blankets and juggling camera equipment while politely asking tourists to move along. This location favorite of mine, is typically quite cold, windy, and full of wanderers taking in the view (and getting in my shot.) On this surprisingly warm day in San Francisco, I made sure to take complete advantage of the Sutro Baths and luckily didn't run into many people competing for the same space. YAY!
I'm slightly obsessed with the black and white images from this engagement shoot. They just make me smile every time I take a glance. Counting down the days for this sweet couple's beautiful wedding in Napa!
Sometimes you can just feel the love that two people share. It shows in a snuggle, a forehead kiss, a good laugh, an embrace, holding hands, quiet moments, and of course, a big smooch on the lips. Photographs can be beautiful reminders to take the time to express love for the ones we cherish the most in our lives. Congratulations to this sweet couple for finding each other.
