Amanda and Daniel wanted their engagement session to be personal to them, their love, and their life. You may also recognize Amanda as the gorgeous, Ms. Colorado! What an honor! The two are currently planning their upcoming destination wedding to be held in Germany! When photographing their engagement session, we decided to start shooting in their own neighborhood, Potrero Hill, with the skyline of their beloved city behind them. Our next stop was at Baker Beach for a little football and champagne next to the Golden Gate Bridge, where we witnessed a spectacular sunset. We couldn't help but make one more stop for a second round of champagne on Pier 14 with the gorgeous night scape of the city and the Bay Bridge in the distance. Congratulations Amanda and Daniel! Thank you for such a great time! I can't wait to hear more about your wedding!
I recently had the opportunity to photograph my future bride and groom, Helen and David's engagement session featuring their favorite city, San Francisco!
Our first stop was at the top of Potrero Hill. With perfect weather and a beautiful clear sky, we were able to include that famous view of Downtown San Francisco to capture the full essence of the city. From there we headed to Lands End where the constant weather changes blessed us with both fog AND a clear sunset, giving us the most beautiful light beams through the trees.
Helen and David are such a stunning couple, no matter where I photographed them, it was breath taking. They even brought along their adorable fur-baby, Penny, to be a part of the session! Talk about an adorable family-to-be!
When you experience a solid and true romance it sticks with you. Its been a few weeks and I am still day dreaming about April and Henrys stunning City Hall wedding. These two have such a fairy tale romance that you can clearly see in their marriage celebration.
The two of them caught each others eyes while in Seattle, each on personal adventures. They first saw each other in a museum café where Henry sat next to April, neither said hello or introduced themselves. Later that day they saw each other twice more at two different museums, still not saying hello, but they definitely noticed one another. Later that night, while sitting at their terminals in the Seattle Airport, Henry heading to Orange County and April going home to San Diego, theirs eyes once locked again. It was now or never so Henry finally introduced himself and four years later, they were married.
They wanted a small and private wedding. Something simple, beautiful and with family. Since April's family was coming from Los Angeles and Henry's family would be coming from New York, they decided to have a destination wedding in San Francisco.
Their ceremony was held in the beautiful City Hall. April wore a breath taking, off the shoulder dress by Jenny Yoo from BHLDN with a pair of Valentino's show stopping shoes. Her simple and elegant head piece completed her look, creating a vision of a greek goddess bride. Her bouquet was made by the incredible Studio Choo and fit in with her look better than we could have asked for.
They had a intimate reception dinner at Flour & Water, a to die for private dining experience in the Mission of San Francisco. Studio Choo dressed up the already beautiful private room with more of their gorgeous flower arrangements. The two families became one with champagne, charcuterie cake and laughter creating beautiful memories for us all to cary in our hearts for a life time.
