When Amit contacted me to see if I could document their five year wedding anniversary, I was so touched!! I thought it was the coolest thing that they would celebrating being them. We walked along Land's End and ended our "golden hour" sunset session at China Beach where we popped some bubbly and congratulated them on a happy, healthy five years under their belt! Here are some of my favorites from our session:
Ahhh, engagements. I have to say, as a baby photographer who works with uncooperative subjects all the time, engagement shoots are simply refreshing! I mean what can possibly be better than two individuals head-over-heels, fresh in love with each other, excited to start a new journey together?? I had the privilege of shooting TWO engagement sessions in one weekend (you may have seen Ali + Mike's engagement as well) and it was the breath of fresh air I needed! I hope you enjoy the photos of these two lovebirds as much as I enjoyed capturing them. Lover's Lane in the Presidio was the absolute perfect backdrop for us!
"So two gals walked into a bar one night...." Yes, Ali + Mike's story actually does go something like that. Ali has been a dear friend of ours for the last 4+ years we've lived in San Francisco and we gladly adopted Mike into our circle when they met at the wine bar District a few years ago!! They are getting married in Las Vegas this fall and I was honored that they allowed me to take engagement photos to celebrate the upcoming nuptials!!! We headed first to Lover's Lane in the Presidio and then to Crissy Field and the Marina Green where we had a stunning view of the Golden Gate Bridge as our backdrop.
As you can see in the photos, I had a VERY hard time getting them to warm up to the camera (okay, so they made my job very easy but don't tell anyone I said that!!). Congratulations, Ali + Mike!
Angela + Chris are, in a word, adorable. They light up when they are together and, equally important, they crack each other up! I am SO excited about their wedding in June 2011 and we had the opportunity to celebrate a little early with their engagement session! We went to Land's End and walked around the Sutro Baths to find our favorite spots....
