Palace of Fine Arts & Lover's Lane Engagement Photography - Megana and Mitchell

Mega and Mitch have an uncanny way of reading my mind. It happened countless times at their engagement session in San Francisco. I would bring my camera up to my eye and think to myself: "It would be perfect if Mitch kissed her forehead right now." And BOOM — he did so without me even saying a word. Or I would frame up my composition and think to myself: "It would be cute if Mega playfully glanced back at Mitch." And BOOM — she did just that! Dream clients? You bet!

Simply put, Alfie and Jan's wedding day was perfect: amazing spaces with beautiful light throughout the entire day, my favorite bridal shoes to photograph (Aflie's Valentino Rockstuds), and an intimate ceremony at the center of it all. Their ceremony took place at the architectural marvel that is San Francisco City Hall, where they exchanged vows at the top of the grand staircase underneath the hall’s extravagant dome, surrounded by their closest family and friends.

Ladies and gentlemen, meet Tatiana and Charles. For the record, they know a thing or two about how fickle weather can be in San Francisco. The first time we met up at the Palace of Fine Arts for their engagement session, the rotunda was engulfed in fog. Thanks a lot, Karl! And for attempt number two, we were greeted with rain. The week leading up to the third scheduled date, the weather wasn't looking much better...

San Francisco Engagement Photography - Christine and Reynaldo

For those of you who don't already know: Reynaldo (or JR as I call him) is my older brother, and Christine is his lovely bride-to-be. To start of this post, let me tell you a couple of things about them. First, they're Sharks fans -- so thanks to Christine for sacrificing valuable Sharks playoff time to pose for my camera. And second they can endlessly exchange 90's movie quotes -- like endlessly! Which comes useful, when trying to get my brother to have a natural smile (haha). Well this past Sunday, I spent the evening with them at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco.
