Susie + Jon: San Francisco Engagement Photo Session at Glen Canyon Park

       With their wedding about a month away, Susie and Jon are relaxed and even giddy with anticipation! Last Sunday, we rambled the orange poppy lined trails of Glen Canyon Park together taking photographs for their engagement session. It felt like we were documenting the perfect date watching these two walking hand-in-hand through the woods, goofing-around in a sour grass eating competition, and kissing among the tall spring grasses. To top off the afternoon, Susie and Jon graciously shared a bounty of chocolate croissants and gala apples and we all sat on the grass laughing and soaking in the afternoon sun.

       With only a few weeks left for Susie + Jon to introduce each other at a party as "my fiancé(e)" -- these moments document a special time in their romance before they tie the knot! Enjoy some of our fave photographs of this gorgeous couple!

       These two hiking buddies run and play softball in their free time, and are in such great shape they don't really need to take rest breaks - but a kiss under the trees makes such a stop irresistible!

       Sitting on a grassy hill, Jon plucks a white morning glory and puts it behind Susie's ear.

       "Oh!!!! These taste so goooooood!!!" Susie exclaims as Jon hams it up. Sour grass sweetens the breath for a kiss.

       These two know how to enjoy themselves. As Jon said, one of the best parts after a hike are the treats. Thanks Susie + Jon for sharing your delish picnic with us!
