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!!

Photo Session with Wilderness Skills Expert Matt Forkin

     Our friend Matt is an incredible wilderness expert, who has spent many years honing his skills in primitive methods of living. We spent an afternoon with him in the Marin Headlands, photographing this real-life caveman, using and demonstrating all the carefully handcrafted wares he has learned to make, while wearing a buckskin outfit he also designed. It's like Matt just escaped from a natural history museum display and is now free in the woods! Pretty fantastic :) Enjoy!
