San Francisco Engagement Photography Session: Natasia + Shawn

     Shawn proposed to Natasia on the beach at Kirby Cove, so it was a perfect choice to return to the sand and surf to take their engagement photos. Kirby Cove is a beautiful spot, just below the Golden Gate Bridge in the Marin Headlands, with lush ferns, pine trees, and a stellar view of the bridge and the Bay. Natasia + Shawn had a wonderful time reliving their proposal and playing in the waves.  

       On our way back to San Francisco, we stopped at the Palace of Fine Arts, and after a quick costume change, the couple emerged in formal attire, for a romantic, glamorous, "wow" look. We took photographs of them under the many columns and arches of SF's iconic landmark for a series of images suitable for a spread in Vogue.
