San Francisco Engagement Photography Session: Maya + Liam

      We love going to the movies and catching a romantic comedy now and again.  The best actors are able to make you laugh until your face hurts, but can also melt your heart into a warm puddle.  If we were casting directors, Maya and Liam would get the part.  Not only are they hilarious and playful, they can bring out such romance to make you want to howl at the moon.  

       You might recognize them from other photos we took where they were dressed in full wedding regalia at a mansion on Treasure Island.  Maya wore a beautiful white dress and pearls and Liam looking dapper in a suit with a boutonniere to match his green tie.  They sent our photos to their friends and family as their engagement announcement: "Surprise, We're Married!  Ha-ha!  Just kidding!"  The most romantic prank ever, and especially appropriate since Maya has a family tradition of eloping.

       This is the first time we've ever taken engagement photos after doing a couple's wedding photos.  We went to Glen Canyon, where Liam used to romp around as a camp counselor in his youth.  They showed us parts of the park we never knew existed, frolicking and laughing all the way.  Here's a selection of images from their engagement photo session, which seem to tell mini stories, still vignettes of love and comedy.  We can't wait for Maya + Liam's real wedding this summer - and will keep you posted.  Congratulations you crazy love birds!!!
