We are so close to Katie & Jake’s wedding date, I can’t believe it’s almost here already. I had the pleasure of doing an engagement session for them in Downtown Livermore, California. They chose locations that are very important to their relationship – the spot they decided to start dating, the place they went on their first date and the spot Jake asked Katie to marry him. Such fun and I love how varied their locations and all the photos are!
Can’t wait to team up with a good friend to photograph the wedding day!
What a great couple to spend a summer morning with! With the wedding only a few weeks away, I wanted to share engagement photos since we had lovely weather and a beautiful location. These two shared so much laughter together during our session, which made for a fun time. Looking forward to capturing their wedding day!
I’m definitely way, way behind on posting these (they were taken over a year ago). Normally, I’d just let them go, but I enjoy everything about this set of images – the couple, the locations, the photographer I was tagging along with – so they still get posted. Thanks for such a lovely day and seeing these photos made me excited for them all over again.
Love these two. Love their baby that is on the way.
It’s hard to put into words, but Amy has been a close friend for years. We’ve been through junior high, college, marriage (our wedding were 6 weeks apart) and all the steps along the way. Now they’re welcoming a little girl into their family and I am so excited for this baby!
Amy requested a stream for their photo session, so we found one that was pretty easy to access. Pretty sure we made Anthony nervous while we were getting the pictures in the water, but they turned out pretty awesome!
I’ve known Anna for years, and we’ve discussed collaborating on projects for our small businesses. Little did we know that our first photo session together would be for maternity photos! Believe me, this girl is so stylish, I was giddy at the chance to get her in front of my camera, and Randy is pretty awesome as well to join in the fun. Our plan was to walk around their neighborhood for their photos, and it was a great idea! We found so many perfect little spots and ended up with a great variety of locations in their photos (which is maybe why I had a hard time choosing my favorites).
I had been thinking that these two would be a pleasure to have in front of the camera. Then Justin took Adele on a hike, played her a song he wrote and asked her to marry him. Perfect opportunity to do a photo session! And, I was right, these two were naturals in front of the camera and we shared a lot of laughs which you’ll see in the photos. Congratulations to you both, I’m excited for your wedding day!
First off, these two – Natalie and Matt – have such a great connection to one another. Just looking through the photos from their photoshoot, you can tell how strongly attached they are to one another. Their engagement photos make me even more excited to photograph their wedding day this summer.
Second, these locations. We spent our time in Alameda, at the shoreline and on the Naval Base. Both were really great choices with lots of options and the three of us got to explore a new space!
So much fun getting to know these two a little better. Crystal & Derrick had their engagement shoot at a winery and wanted to continue the tradition by doing their maternity session at Concannon Vineyard in Livermore. We met up on a sunny day and had a great time wandering around the property, chatting and taking photos. These two share a great connection and I’m looking forward to seeing their little guy join in!
Every time I go out on a new shoot, I decide it’s my favorite one so far. I really enjoy the relationships between people and being able to capture it for them. Christie and Adam really made this shoot wonderful, because their connection is really evident and spending time with them just makes me excited for their journey together.
Although this wasn’t an engagement shoot, the two wanted to take the time to have some photos taken together before their upcoming wedding. Since they are outdoorsy and active, I suggested we go to Roberts Park in Oakland. We started out in some spots I’ve had in my head for years that would be perfect for photos, then wandered through some wooded paths nearby.
After the engagement and wedding photos, the relationships continue to grow each day and through the years. Not many people take the time to celebrate that love with photos, but it’s beautiful to see and celebrate! Cailin & Phil decided they wanted to mark their anniversary by spending time wandering San Francisco, laughing, exploring and taking photos together. Congratulations on another year of a wonderful relationship!
