It doesn’t seem wise to plan an engagement shoot in the pouring rain, but a little bit of water seems to add a nice touch to an engagement session. Salina and Elijah braved the Winter storm, some admittedly frigid weather, and joined me at the Palace of the Legion of Honor in San Francisco for their engagement shoot. And best of all, after rain all day, the clouds parted just in time for us to have the perfect lighting for an afternoon of photography.

    Beautiful pictures!!!

Tatyana and Julian came out to the Bay Area from Illinois for the holidays, and took the opportunity to meet up with me for some engagement photos after Christmas. We wandered around Palo Alto, into the foothills for beautiful California oaks and golden hills, ending up downtown with the holiday lights sparkling around the city.

    Would you be able to tell me where the first photo was taken? It’s beautiful and so are all of your photos!

Sometimes the weather doesn’t cooperate with photoshoot plans, with a grey and rainy day instead of a beautiful sunset on the beach. However, aside from a bit of anxiety as I’m pushed to be even more creative, I absolutely love the challenge of working in difficult photography situations. With fading light, scattered showers, and the twinkling lights of Christmas just starting to go up around the city, I headed out with Matt and Caroline to get some photos of the two of them before they get married in February. As Texas transplants, Caroline had always wanted to go to SF as a tourist, taking photos around the town. Now as Bay Area residents the Golden Gate may seem a bit less glamorous, but we still had our chance to grab a few city view photos for them to bring back with them when they head back home for the wedding. We had a wonderful time, only got a little bit wet and I think that these photos are absolutely worth it. A few quick favorites are below.
