Mary + David: San Francisco Couple's Photo Session at Stow Lake in Golden Gate Park

       What better way to celebrate a birthday than to get whisked away from the "Big Easy" to our "City by the Bay" for a weekend getaway. When Mary mentioned one day that she wished they had more couple's photos together, David took note and surprised her with a photo session in Golden Gate Park. The afternoon was classic S.F. and picturesque. When we met them, the fog was just rolling in from Ocean Beach, and steam was rising from Stow Lake, a convergence of veils that lent the scene an air of mystery and romance. We found a rowboat for them to tuck into, and they drifted on the lake together, snuggling close together on their seat to stay warm.

       Walking along the tree-lined path at the water's edge, David explained that just like us, they love spending as much time together as they could, and enjoy working together as well. David is a cardiologist and Mary is a nurse, and they work together in the same lab. Talk about romantic! These two are such sweeties: intelligent, courageous, and kind; it's no surprise that their hearts melded in love while healing the hearts of their patients.

       We send Mary all our best wishes as she embarks on another wonderful decade of life, and are so happy to celebrate her birthday in San Francisco with these photos.
