kirsten + peter | COYOTE HILLS REGIONAL PARK ENGAGEMENT

Kirsten and Peter are absolute dream clients. Like, I could squeeze my eyes shut right now and try and imagine my dream couple and dream engagement session, and these two would waltz right in. This was my first engagement session for a 2019 wedding booking, and I’m SO happy with how I feel about these […]

erica + stephen | MT. TAMALPAIS ENGAGEMENT SESSION

I can’t get enough of these sunset engagement sessions! I recently traveled up to scenic Mount Tamalpais State Park with Erica and Stephen, and the views there definitely didn’t disappoint. These two both work in the medical field with absolutely INSANE alternating schedules, and our time together was one of the only days that month […]

alicia + yilok | TILDEN BOTANICAL GARDEN ENGAGEMENT

The botanical garden at Tilden Park is one of my favorite getaways in the East Bay. It’s very quiet and tucked away, especially compared to the nearby Berkeley Botanical Gardens (another wonderful place to visit if you ever get the chance!). There’s very little foot traffic at this particular garden, which means you can wander […]

kristina + harminder | POINT REYES ENGAGEMENT SESSION

They’re both crazy adventurous – Harminder actually proposed to Kristina during the middle of a two-day hike in Kauai! – and love just hanging […]

carly + luis | SUTRO BATHS + MARIN HEADLANDS ENGAGEMENT SESSION

Almost three years into living here in the Bay Area, and I’m still horribly sentimental about the sights and sounds that come with living at the edge of the world. I’m so glad I got to share this experience with Carly and Luis, who traveled all the way to San Francisco from Atlanta, GA for […]

Engagements

liz + wes | SUTRO BATHS + DOWNTOWN ENGAGEMENT

The light truly loves these two. Waking up before sunrise to explore the quiet morning scenes of San Francisco with Liz and Wes was worth every single minute of lost sleep. I typically recommend conducting engagement sessions either early in the day or later towards the evening, for a variety of reasons from ideal lighting […]
