Mo + Ryan: San Francisco Engagement Photography in the San Francisco Botanical Gardens & Baker Beach

       Mo + Ryan share a real romantic spark, not to mention they were almost struck by lightning when Ryan was going to propose! They had hiked to the top of Mt. Fuji to watch the sunrise, and ended up arriving as a storm swept in and feeling the heat of a bolt sear the air within a few feet of them. As Grease's John Travolta howls in  the song, "You're the One I Want" --- "It's Electrifying!!"

       M + R traded in a storm for a sunny day to serve as the  backdrop to their engagement session in SF, including a stroll through the San Francisco Botanical Gardens, bursting with vibrant spring magnolia blooms, and then an excursion to Baker Beach with their pup, Lucca. 

       These two are such a perfect couple together. We love their energy and had a wonderful day with them. We're so excited for their wedding later this year -- it's going to be awesome!

       Congratulations Mo + Ryan on your engagement!!

Alissa + Brent: Anniversary Photo Session at Stanford University in Palo Alto

       We met Alissa + Brent last year at Liz + Will's wedding, and these love birds made quite the impression: they were some of the most memorable guests on the dance floor! They had some totally amazing moves and we got some awesome photos of them in action.

       We were so happy to connect with them again when Alissa contacted us about setting up an anniversary photo session at Stanford University in Palo Alto. After having such a great time with them strolling through campus, sharing laughs, cooling off in the shade, and stretching out on the green lawn under the sun, it was clear that they are the perfect partners for each other, both on and off the dance floor. :)

       Hats off to you both! Congratulations on your anniversary!

Lauren + Steve: San Francisco Engagement Photography at Baker Beach and the Legion of Honor

       Lauren + Steve got engaged on the beach, with Steve setting up a treasure hunt for Lauren that ended with an actual treasure chest, holding a gorgeous diamond engagement ring. So it seemed utterly perfect to have their engagement photo session at another beach; this time, San Francisco's Baker Beach. It was a classic, romantic foggy summer afternoon, and these two love birds took the opportunity to get cozy in each other's arms. We could not have asked for a more wonderful duo to photograph. Not only do they look like super models (Lauren's outfits were stunning and so colorful!) but they are also incredibly playful. We were all laughing like goofballs and cracking jokes. By the time we arrived at the Legion of Honor, Lauren + Steve were having so much fun, they took the occasion to sprint, hand in hand, through the colonnades.

       We're so excited to Lauren + Steve's wedding this fall! Congratulations sweeties!!

Hilary + Ryan: San Francisco Engagement Photo Session at Crissy Field

       Hilary + Ryan have the most romantic love story. They met in high school and came together again at their reunion a few years ago. Now they are getting married! How sweet can these two get?! They also have a wonderful pup, named DJ, who joined us for their dreamy winter engagement photo session at San Francisco's Crissy Field. 

       It rained cats + dogs all morning, but with love comes good luck, and the clouds lightened up just in time for our beach stroll. We had a fantastic time with H + R, chatting about our favorite movies, San Francisco restaurants and workout routines, and stopped at every beautiful spot possible, taking photos of these two sweethearts.

       We are sooo excited for H + R's wedding next year! Congratulations on your engagement H + R!

Merritt + Brian: Lake Tahoe Engagement Photo Session

        When our friends, Brian and Merritt, discussed their dream for their engagement session, Brian (the naturalist) saw a scene in nature, and Merritt (the romantic) pictured plenty of PDA. Their combined, binocular vision materialized in 3D up in the mountains of Tahoe for a playful photo shoot with bushels of smooches in the most gorgeous of alpine locations, along a trail featuring trees that were not only just tall and beautiful, but, according to Brian, could be identified by cone, bark, or leaf as Ponderosa Pines, Douglass Firs, or Pacific Dogwoods. Not only did we learn plenty of tree names, but also came to recognize the Juncos, Steller's Jays, and other birds that occupied them.

        The photo session started in the morning with an impromptu jam session at the cabin, with Brian strumming his banjo and Merritt banging on a Peruvian jawbone. Meanwhile, our friends, Maya + Liam prepared breakfast, the bouquet of smoky bacon wafting out of the kitchen and  creating smoke tails in the window's morning light. With filled bellies, we headed out on a hike to a high sierra alpine lake, getting a little lost on the way, but finding beautiful fall leaves for a perfect yellow and orange photo backdrop. After jumping some train tracks, we finally reached the lake, glacier cold and burnished a rippling blue by the sun and wind. Merritt + Brian were adorable, cuddling along the banks and practicing their rock-skipping skills. Back at the cabin, they threw together a gourmet pizza dinner (including a heart-shaped pizza pie!) and we all gathered around the kitchen table, relaxed and refreshed after our day soaking up nature. 

        We adore Merritt + Brian and they complement each other so wonderfully -- Merritt is always quick with her wit and full of laughter, and Brian is such a sweetheart, full of wood lore, and completely head-over-heels for his lovely lady. We are elated that Merritt + Brian are getting married and we are so happy to be able to document their engagement with these photos, that show all the ways the have fun and celebrate life together.

        Congratulations M + B!!!! Lots of love.
