Taylor & Hannah | San Francisco Bay Area Wedding & Engagement Photographer

I love when my clients suggest places to shoot because more often than not those locations are special to them. When this couple suggested Muir Woods and the Filbert Steps I was excited because those were two places where I've never shot. Muir Woods is a 30ish minute drive from San Francisco but you feel a world away. Even on a sunny day at 3pm we were enveloped in the shadows of towering redwoods. I'm sure candle manufactures everywhere wish they could duplicate the small - it was like we were in a fairytale. I half expected Little Red Riding Hood to pop out at any moment :) After Muir Woods, we headed back towards their apartment and were graced with the last bits of hazy sun. Views of the TransAmerica building, the Bay Bridge, Coit Tower, and iconic steep hills surrounded us in a literal 360 degree fashion. We explored the Filbert Steps and chatted as we walked around the beautiful neighborhood that they call home.

It was a pleasure to meet and spend time with these two lovely humans.

Kristine & Joe's Engagement Session...San Francisco Style!

Kristine and Joe met while both attending law school at Columbia University in New York. They recently relocated to downtown San Francisco and I'll be photographing their wedding in beautiful San Louis Obispo this Fall. For their engagement session, I met them just blocks from their home in San Francisco and asked them what it was like living in such a busy city. They remarked that San Francisco was like the suburbs compared to New York City. Ah, touche...can you tell that I've never been to the Big Apple? haha. We had a great time wandering around as they showed me where they liked to take walks and where they liked to go for breakfast on the weekends. I always leave the city feeling happy and energized and this day was no different. Oh, you San Francisco photographers, how lucky you are to live and shoot in such a beautiful place! I can't wait to come back.
