I've lived in the East Bay for 7+ years now and am always so thrilled when I get to photograph near home. Not only is the commute easy, but the places are warm and familiar, and this area has some incredible spots. Tilden Park has an infinite number of different backdrops and trails, and is perfect for an exploratory-style engagement shoot. The sunset was foggy and chilly, but what else can you really expect from a Bay Area summer?
Sally and Matt were total champs, exploring with me and giggling the ENTIRE time. They kept each other warm and were nothing but a constant pleasure to photograph and hang out with. I even brought them to my own wedding site within the park!
