It is always a joy to photograph an engagement session. For me, it not only reminds me of how special this time is for a couple, but it is also a celebration. A celebration of beginning a life together, of love, and of the planning process. Amelia and Jose are a fabulous example of a couple in the midst of this glorious time.
As soon as Amelia and I talked about their engagement session I knew a special location was in order. She is a woman who likes things to have flare. It is a concept that has consistently shown up in their wedding planning. We all felt that San Francisco would be the ideal location. The city’s options are countless. The Palace of Fine Arts and the Golden Gate Bridge are not only iconic San Francisco landmarks, but they would provide us with numerous options, while maintaining a subtle flair and panache.
As soon as I arrived I knew our session was meant to be. It was one of those rare SF weather days that we in the Bay Area cherish. My heart soared! It was 67 degrees with enough breeze to blow out the smog and clouds, leaving behind glorious blue skies. And not to brag to those of you stuck in the snow, but this was JANUARY! Yup, January. We hit the Golden Gate Bridge at the perfect time. As the sun was setting, the bridge was in fact golden. Swoon!
Thank you again Amelia and Jose. I am so excited to present your photos. It was an absolute dream spending the afternoon with you both, and I am glad to have introduced you to one of my favorite parts of San Francisco.
