In-Home and Bernal Heights San Francisco Engagement Shoot.
The end of a year is always a time for reflection (especially when you're on vacation and it's too cold to go outside!). When reviewing photos I always pause on how a good portrait is a full collaboration between photographer and subject. Thank you to everyone who both trusted me and brought so many great ideas in front of my camera!
2017: A year of weddings, engagements, and elopements with the coolest couples a photographer could ask for.
Every year is different, and I'm excited for both the pre-planned bookings and the mystery of what's to come. I plan on diving further into non-wedding portraiture and seeing how that mindset influences my wedding work. I'm ready to embrace and challenge the power of light, movement, emotion, and editing -- but I also aim to tell simple, beautiful love stories without getting caught up in trendy optics.
I'll see you there.
When Liza of Studio DBI suggested running an Instagram contest for a styled engagement shoot, I never dreamed we'd find clients as perfect as Jenna and Jason. Jenna is a lifestyle blogger at Jenna Rose Colored Glasses and had so many amazing suggestions (and outfits!) to really take this shoot to the next level. She's also very accustomed to being in front of the camera! Jason was new to the modeling life, but was smiling and involved throughout the shoot.
We started at Lovers Lane in the Presidio before heading to the Legion of Honor for formal portraits, followed by Lands End for sunset and a picnic. Jenna and Jason just got cuter and more snuggly as the shoot went on, and a great team of vendors brought everything together. Thank you to all of the amazing local artisans who turned this vision into reality!
