Kristen and Brian's Napa Engagement

This is the kind of engagement session that I just want to share EVERY image from! Kristen and Brian met me in Downtown Napa on a deliciously sunny day. We started by exploring some of my favorite photo spots, then moved out to Skyline Park to capture some of that great light that this Valley is famous for! I'm so excited for the wedding this Spring, it's certain to be a lovely affair!

Caroline and Brian's San Francisco Engagement

Caroline and Brian are so sweet and vibrant with each other, it's impossible to not smile while around them! These two happily met me in the Mission District for a jaunt through Clarion Alley, Valencia Street, and beers at Elixir after Monk's Kettle was too packed for us to enjoy ourselves. I know that I go to Clarion Alley a lot, but really, is there anything better? I don't think I'll ever get tired of the brig colors and the way light streams through just before golden hour! Caroline and Brian are getting married tomorrow at the South End Rowing Club and I'm so very excited to see them again!

Remy and Amy's San Francisco Engagement

Remy and Amy are two of the nicest and sweetest people that I have had the pleasure of meeting. When I arrived in their Bernal Heights neighborhood, I knew that I was going to be in for a great afternoon! After getting my workout on the steps to Billy Goat Hill, we enjoyed the city views and the company of some cute dogs that decided to photobomb us! Their Allied Arts Guild wedding is tomorrow and I couldn't be more excited to share in the celebration with their family an friends. Congratulations Remy and Amy!

Lori and Shelley's Palo Alto love story

I met Lori and Shelley on a sunny yet comfortable day in Palo Alto. They gave me chilled green tea, delicious vegan cookies and told me all about themselves and their upcoming wedding. These two had their first date at a bookstore, and both work for Stanford University so it seemed a natural fit to spend time at two of their most loved places! I quickly dated showed them my nerdy side when I admitted that I had attended Drum Major Camp at Stanford back in 2002 (yes, I was and still am a huge band nerd). I have to warn you, there are a lot of photos from this session and I tried so hard to not share every single one! The love that these two have for each other is so heartwarming, and their laughter is quite infectious. Just take a look at how happy they are...and how cute their smiling pup is!

Thank you so much to Lori and Shelley for letting me hang out with you, I had a phenomenal time. Congratulations on your upcoming wedding, I know it's going to be a day filled with love and laughter!

James and Kali's Napa Love Story

Do you remember this awesome couple that worked with Rory and me? Well, they're love-filled session is ready for viewing and I'm so excited to share! We started the day at Andretti Winery in Napa and laughed over flights of Reds. Our tasting room attendant was so funny and charming, he made Kali and James laugh which is always a great thing for photos! With both Rory and myself following these two around with our cameras, many visitors of the winery that day even thought that Kali and James were celebrities! They took the paprazzi in stride though, and I'm so happy with how their session turned out.

Thank you Kali and James for being such good sports, thank you Rory for giving me another reason to work with this cute couple, and thanks to all three of them for agreeing to get Falafel after the session!
