I am so excited to photograph Rachel and Andrew's wedding later this year! Even though I've lived in Northern California most of my life I had never actually been to Berkeley, just driven through it. What a cute, vibrant town! We started off at their favorite tea house, walked to their first apartment together, and then ended on the campus of UC Berkeley.
I am so excited to photograph the wedding of these two lovely people next fall just outside of my hometown of Sacramento! For their engagement session we chose Baker Beach in San Francisco in large part so that they could bring their sweet one year old labradoodle, Fitz! We had the best time playing ball, running around in the sand, and cozying up to stay warm (them, not me, lol). Ragen and Mitch asked if they could bring along one prop - American and Canadian flags! I had fun incorporating them into their engagement session :)
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.
