Tricia + Olivier: San Francisco Engagement Photo Session in Golden Gate Park

       Tricia + Olivier were just back from a vacation in the tropics when we took their engagement photos in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park and they were both literally glowing from their time in the sunshine. And who would have thought that our very own City by the Bay could have such a tropical vibe itself?! Some of these photos could have been taken in Hawaii!

       We had a wonderful time with Tricia + Olivier, romping through the lush green grasses near the Conservatory of Flowers, sipping on a bottle of red wine and sharing a picnic. It was a totally romantic afternoon, with a game of hide and seek, a few dance moves under the branches of the trees and some steamy kisses by the fountain. 

       Congratulations on your engagement T + O!

Lisa + Eugene: Westin St. Francis Hotel Wedding Photography in San Francisco, Pt. 2

       It was time to clink glasses and celebrate Lisa + Eugene being married! Their wedding reception at the top of the Westin St. Francis in downtown San Francisco was truly stunning. Lisa picked out the most beautiful details, including sequin embellished table clothes, that sparkled in the evening sunlight. 

       Lisa + Eugene know how to throw a stellar party and the rest of the evening was filled with heartfelt and hilarious toasts, dancing, cake and of course, shots of vodka! We are soo happy for Lisa + Eugene and wish them a lifetime of love together! Congratulations love birds!
