I met Chelsea as a bridesmaid at another wedding – an organized and totally attentive bridesmaid at that, who was also partially responsible for the design & beauty of the day. I can only imagine what she & James are cooking up for their special day here in San Francisco next May.

We started their engagement session on the secret rooftop of their apartment in the Marina & then headed to Fort Point for some photos near the Golden Gate bridge. We finished off with some pizza and beer at their favorite local spot, Final Final – a family owned sports bar. I’m still heart eyes over this session at some of the places that are most special to Chelsea & James. This shoot is classically San Francisco and so authentic to who these two are and their journey as a couple here in SF. Can’t wait to celebrate them & see where their adventures take them next!

Cheers!

Holy cow – you guys are literally going to FLIP when you see how cute Jillian & Justin are! These two were introduced [*cough* set up?] by Jillian’s Aunt who was Justin’s co-worker at the time. The pair was engaged this summer in Jamaica, how fun is that!? Pretty epic.

We began their session at the iconic Palace of Fine Arts in the presidio of San Francisco, then headed to Baker Beach to catch the sunset near the bridge! Be sure to catch Justin’s ACTUAL backflip at the beach! These two are planning one heck of a wedding party & I cannot wait to capture it all next August. Cheers to J&J!

Okay, story time! First things first, the second Jessi’s inquiry came through to my inbox I was so excited! See, I went by Jessi for years as a kid – spelled just like that with no “e” at the end. Kindred spirits already! Then on top of that, I found out she & her fiancé Craig are friends of friends of mine & Chris’! We got to meet them at our friend’s wedding just a couple weeks later.

For their engagement photos, we started the session at the spot where Craig proposed – a classic SF corner with a view a.k.a. “their spot”. Then we walked around North Beach during golden hour! Jessi & Craig’s Fall wedding next year is going to be SO much fun & I cannot wait for the major party these two are throwing!!

When Gaetano & his brother reached out about his proposal to Erica during their trip along the California coast, I could not contain my excitement! Erica & Gaetano live in Toronto and were making a trip along the coast all the way from San Diego up through the Bay. Gaetano wanted to propose with the beautiful golden gate bridge as the backdrop, which was so lovely!

We tricked Erica by telling her we were just doing a photo session to capture this leg of their trip (the two have hired a photographer on vacations in the past, so this wasn’t out of the ordinary for them!). Little did she know that Gaetano had a surprise for her down on the beach! Her surprised reaction was so pure & exciting to capture! We even got so lucky because the beach was totally empty that evening and they had the space to themselves. Please enjoy these precious & exciting moments!

Céline & John are the two cutest & sweetest Canadians living in SF and their Presidio engagement session was to die for! The two met when they were living in Montreal and John even proposed right outside the Parliament building (in the freezing snowy weather!) where they first met. SWOON!

Please enjoy these beautiful images that capture Céline & John’s love story as we wandered through the Presidio and enjoyed the sunset at Baker Beach. Cheers babes!

Sara + Brent had an absolutely lovely engagement session! We started at the Legion of Honor Museum in SF (this place gives me major Paris vibes & I love it!) and then drove across the bridge for drinks and sunset at the Sausalito docks. I can’t wait to photograph their wedding in Sebastopol!

I just KNEW this Pac Heights engagement session was gonna be a good one. I pulled up to the crossroads that Carly provided and these two cuties led me to the most beautiful bougainvillea-covered home I’ve ever seen!! It may not be Carly & Bryant’s current home, but hey … goals! I had so much fun walking around the neighborhood with these two – we even got to celebrate a bit & pop some bubbly on their rooftop!

It makes my heart sing when couples choose to capture their engagement session in their own neck of the woods and really celebrate this moment in their lives. Cheers to you two & I cannot wait to capture your amazing wedding next Spring!

Pac Heights Engagement Session | Carly + Bryant

Engagement

He planned a romantic train ride, wining and dining her before dropping to one knee.

Trains make her motion sick and she couldn’t wait to be back on solid ground.

After a mini interior panic, he decided to take care of his girl, give her rest, and wait patiently.

She was feeling back to normal and agreed to go on a walk along the Russian River where they came across a beautiful secluded garden.

… she said YES!

Melissa & Rory are just as sweet as can be! These two lovebirds love their home in the East Bay and really wanted to capture the beauty of it’s hills in their session. It was insanely windy and cold, and they were such champs about it! We were having way too much fun to worry about which way Melissa’s hair was whipping in the wind!

My favorite part of their session was one of those in-between moments – we were walking down the hill to a new spot, and Rory stooped down to pick a tiny wildflower and gave it to Melissa. I just thought that was the most precious gesture of kindness and affection towards Melissa! I adore these two, loved meeting them & popping some bubbly and I cannot wait for their wedding next Summer. In the meantime, enjoy the photos from their Dublin engagement session!

I am so excited to share this classic SF engagement session with you guys today! Another client of mine was kind enough to refer me to Kara + Zlaja & I’m so happy to have met them and to have the privilege of capturing their love story.

These cuties met online! Did you know that almost 20% of engaged couples now meet online? It’s true! So many of my clients met through the beauty of technology – I love it (especially since Kara + Zlaja both live the startup life here in SF)!

We had so much fun exploring the corners of the city for K + Z’s e-sesh. We started at the beach at Chrissy Field, headed to the cutest historic cafe where our lovebirds had taken their first photo together early on in their relationship, hopped on a cable car and popped some bubbly at Pier 7! Enjoy!
