Nicole + Peter Engagement | San Francisco

I first met Nicole and Peter through our mutual friend Sophia, who had quite the birthday bash earlier this year. I was excited to discover that we share a passion for good eats at many of the same restaurants in the Bay Area as well as LA. We clicked the moment we met and I knew we were going to have an awesome session.

We began our afternoon in Nicole and Peter's beautiful home and then headed over to the office at One Market where they first met. I loved that they were totally up for anything, including a re-creation of how Nicole first caught Peter's eye. This was an office romance that blossomed into something beautiful and I'm looking forward to shooting their wedding at the equally gorgeous Palace Hotel in a few weeks.

Here are a couple of my faves from the afternoon:

Joy + Anthony Engagement | Oakland & San Francisco

Having moved to Oakland about a year ago I thought I had cruised all the neighborhoods already. When Joy and Anthony shared their favorite places to hangout as ideas for our e-session I was excited to learn of some cool new spots around Piedmont. We started out our afternoon at the Morcom Rose Garden, mildly trespassed a cheerfully orange home, got a quick sushi fix, and chased the fleeting sun on the way to San Francisco. It was a fun night joined in by our friends Edena and Bryan.

I loved how little direction I had to give Joy and Anthony during our session. Something tells me their Berkeley wedding next month is going to be one awesome celebration.
