It took me about two minutes to realize Ellen and Colin’s engagement session was going to be one of the highlights of my week. The energy between them made my job as a photographer as easy as it ever gets. All I had to do was find the light, compose, and… BAM. Another image full of joy and laughter just hit my camera. I love it. Engagement sessions are always a little more fun when a couple chooses a location that is meaningful to them. We shot around their neighborhood, stopped by one of their favorite French bistro’s where they were celebrated with complimentary champagne (thanks Chez Maman!) and spent some time in Golden Gate Park- where they first met. I hope the sweetness of these two, and the fun we had together is reflected in these images. This is why I love what I do. If it hadn’t turned into a freezing day (funny how San Francisco manages turn turn every day into a cold evening) I could have kept shooting through the night.
