Iva and Rahul are getting married on the East Coast but they wanted to celebrate San Francisco, their home, in their engagement session. They are such a playful couple and knew the beach was perfect for them. We chose to photograph at Sutro Baths near Ocean Beach. These haunting ruins offer stunning visual opportunities and world class views of the Pacific Ocean. In the evening, we made images together on Treasure Island, with views of the San Francisco skyline. The sound of their fabulous laughs have stuck with me. What a great session and congratulations again!
The Club at Ruby Hill Wedding In Pleasanton, Ca, was the venue for both ceremony and reception for Elyse and Nate’s wedding. The Mediterranean buildings and landscaping made for an incredible visual experience. Elyse looked ravishing in her Sophia Tolli gown, with loose waves and a boho jeweled hairpiece. Nate and his men wore modern grey suits that complimented the blush tones of the wedding party. From the bride, “We met at work at a casual Friday evening happy hour. I had recently decided to switch jobs on somewhat of a whim, and Nate had finally decided to move to Calif from Florida – must have been meant to be! After getting engaged in Peru after the Inca Trail, we got focused on finding a venue. As soon as we saw Ruby Hill, we knew it was the one. We loved the Tuscan feel of the venue and of course, the amazing oak tree!” Congratulations to Elyse and Nate!

This engagement session in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park was a delightful tour of beautiful gardens and the rugged California coastline. Lindsay and Jake are getting married on the East Coast, but wanted to remember the life they built together in the Bay Area. We started out at the Conservatory of Flowers. The colorful blooms and majestic building made for lovely backgrounds. Next was Ocean Beach, the Cliff House and the ruins of Sutro Baths. Nothing more fun than to curl up with your honey in a blanket and watch the sun go down. Congratulations to Lindsay and Jake!
