Just the most easygoing, relaxing engagement session with Tammy and Chapin. We walked around downtown Oakland, passing by the Dragon School mural hunting around for the sweet light, and finished up at the Joaquin Miller Park.
I went to middle school and high school with Tammy. Crazy how time flies, ey? :)
Lady luck was kind to us! We nabbed a randomly warm, sunny day in early February in San Francisco for Megan and Justin's classic SF engagement session at the Palace of Fine Arts and Baker Beach.
What a fantastic way to spend a cool Sunday afternoon for the start of March. Natalie and Gabe and I explored a small stretch of Big Basin Redwoods State Park for their engagement session. Big props to the both of them for being up for anything (and essentially hiking in dressy clothes and shoes)!
I love engagement sessions. For weddings, I stay quieter, not manipulating the scene, anticipating, and catching moments.
Engagements are a different beast. They're more relaxed (normal clothes and no reception to get to!), a little more private, and have a different mindset.
Let's go somewhere awesome and make cool images of the two of you.
I spent an afternoon with Ariel and Nick on a surprisingly warm day in January for their engagement session. Seeing the two of them fall together so naturally and lovingly made me feel relaxed myself.
So much love.
