Addie + Jon Engagement

So, Addie and Jon's session was one of our favorites, and I swear it wasn't just because they gave us raw cookie dough.  We started their shoot baking cookies in the kitchen, and then wandered around the Presidio in San Francisco.  Addie grew up in the Presidio, and it's so fun walking the neighborhood with a true local who knows where the random swing is or wants to wander through the old horse stables.  Jon and Addie are getting married next May so stay tuned for their wedding!

Alisha + Alan Engagement!

We knew there was something special about Alisha and Alan when they were totally game for having their consultation with us in a dive bar in Woodside.  I was a little skeptical at first, but as soon as we all sat down, it was pretty clear we were going to get along great!

We always love doing engagement sessions in not only beautiful places, but ones that also have some kind of special meaning to the couple.  So when Alisha said she wanted to take pictures in the spot where Alan asked her to be his girlfriend, we were all for it, and then when she said it was atop Bernal Heights, we were like, "Win, win!"  The time we spent photographing Alisha and Alan felt just like hanging out with friends, and before we knew it, it had been almost four hours.  Needless to say, we are really looking forward to their May wedding!

Ashley + Tom Engagement

We don't normally do this, but the other day, when we were just driving along, we saw this nice looking couple carrying a bunch of cute outfits walking along the side of the road and so we stopped to pick them up.  Okay, not exactly, but Ashley and Tom were walking through Crissy Field carrying their clothes when we met up with them for their engagement session.  From there on out, it was all fun and games as Ashley and I had to separate Tom and Adm a couple of times since they just wanted to talk about comics, and we all shared the most delicious and exotic milkshakes ever at The Ice Cream Bar in Cole Valley.  Unfortunately, we won't be photographing their wedding next year (which will be in Michigan) so this is all you're going to get of this sweet couple.  Don't you just love Ashley's pops of color against the San Francisco grey skies?

Larabeth + Matthew Engagement

I have a lovely engagement session to share with you all today!  Larabeth and Matt were so fun and patient as we dragged them from one end of San Francisco to another, starting in the Presidio and ending along the Embarcadero by way of North Beach and the batteries overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge.  Larabeth loves design and so we had a great time hopping in and out of different kinds of doorways, garages and side walls as we explored North Beach.  These two are running off to Australia for two weeks to combine their wedding (just the two of them) and honeymoon in June - doesn't that sound so romantic?  Have the best time ever!
