San Francisco Engagement Photo Session in Alamo Square: Kelley + Carter

      A day in the life of Kelley + Carter is an espresso-fueled, venti-sized dose of pure cuteness.  Everything about them is adorable.  Hollywood producers looking for the next romantic comedy in San Francisco might as well start the bidding on a script based on the loveliness of their life.

       Perched in the cozy nest of their hip apartment, overlooking Alamo Square, the sun invites the two love birds outside, where they stroll hand-in-hand among the pink cherry blossoms in the park.  They joke about their neighbors who live in the painted ladies: Responsible father, Danny Tanner, who raises his three sweet kids,  DJ, Stephanie, and Michelle with the help of his goofball friends, Joey and Jesse.  It's an idyllic life; the fabled S.F. fog can't seem to escape the sunset district, losing steam on its way up the sunny hill where they live.

       Back at home, Kelley catches up on a little reading at their table, while Carter, a coffee expert, makes the perfect brew.  He scoops his hands into burlap sacks full of green coffee beans straight from Yemen and Ethiopia, roasts them, and measures, weighs, boils, pours, smells, and tastes his way through an alchemic process producing a steaming glass of liquid magic.

       Carter hands Kelley a mug of the stuff through the kitchen window, and they cuddle together on the fire escape to sit, chat, and while away a late Sunday afternoon.

       Hope you enjoy some of our favorite photos from Kelley and Carter's engagement photography session.  We're so excited for them, and can't wait to document their wedding in October!
