Graham and Janet are getting married and I am lucky enough to photograph their wedding this summer.
They wanted to have engagement photos for announcements. Graham, who is an emerging photographer, said that he tried to set the camera up and take their own engagement photos with a remote, but he said it was harder than he thought to get the photos to look natural.
So we made a date in Golden Gate Park, and we did a quick one hour engagement shoot with their new love, Jasmine.
Our mini-photo shoot was just enough time for us to get to know each other a little better, and for them to practice being in front of the camera, and for me to capture natural photos of them being in love, with each other… and with Jasmine.
And then Jasmine had enough of the love…

Incredible, Paige!! We could not have found a more talented, sweeter, dog-loving photographer in the world. Janet (and Jasmine) and I can’t wait to take more photos with you. 🙂
Graham and Janet – You could not be any cuter. Also, that puppy face is CRACKING me up!! I love the one where he’s choking on grass and looking vicious while you guys are smiling for the camera! Hilarious!! Paige, you = rad. Remember when our dog was that small?
Janet and Graham (via Bruce),
Thanks for sending these amazingly lovely photos to us. What a fantastic idea—to take photos in a naturalistic setting during that blissful, and relatively relaxed time before the wedding. The photographer captured so much love and strong emotion between you. I really appreciated having the opportunity to vicariously share your joy in this way. It looks like Jasmine was on her best behavior ……..almost!
Leslie and I are honored to be a part of the nuptial celebration.
Paige, We are so happy that Graham and Janet chose you to capture their special day. What wonderful photos and how well they ‘tell’ the story of their relationship. We’re looking forward to meeting you!!
i think they should use the photo where jasmine is making a wild-teeth face.
it reminds me of your wedding pic where i was caught doing something in the big photo i shouldn’t have been doing…
