Engagement Photos and Haiku’s…

Meghan and Tom wanted engagement photos because they did’t have any photos of just the two of them together. And that made me very happy because…

  • it gives us time to get to know each other better
  • I get to see how they photograph
  • they get used to me hanging around and documenting their every move
  • and we get to play without having to worry about time constraints, like on the day of the wedding.

So we met in San Francisco at the Ferry Plaza where we warmed up with baguettes and swing dancing in the bright sun.

Then we made our way to the Golden Gate Bridge where the fog was playing at the edge of the sun, which made for great light and cold photos.

Meghan and Tom were good sports and open for anything, even dusty old phone booths. And they were perfectly happy to be told to “get close” and “snuggle in” because it gave them a chance to talk about haiku’s and laugh.

But my favorite photos of the day were at the very end. We were all more comfortable with each other, the wind was blocked by the tress and the grass was glowing green… everything was perfect.

Come again soon to see their Nicasio Valley wedding photos.

  1. Happy Sunday!

    We had a blast yesterday and I can’t put into words how beautifully those pictures turned out!!!! I started crying when i saw them!!! They are exactly what we wanted. We were worried that all of the poses we could think of would look stale but you caught little pieces in between that turned out so wonderfully…those pieces when we loosened up a bit and didn’t think you were shooting. You captured “us.”

    I can’t wait to see more!!!!! And we really can’t wait to spend more time with you…we love your work and you are such a sweet and interesting person. We can’t wait to see what you capture for the wedding!!!

    THANK YOU!!! After the wedding, we’re already planning our family photo shoot.

    Enjoy the last moments of the weekend,
