Morgan & Asher at home

We love to start engagement sessions at your home. There’s just something about the way people feel in their own space; relaxed, at ease, comfortable in their skin. There’s no plan for how it will go. You can just wear whatever you feel like, hang out together the way you might on a regular Sunday […]

A North Beach Engagement

We wrapped it up with a visit to one of their favorite places, Top Dog. I may […]

Portraits and Engagements

One of our very favorite types of assignment is an engagement or portrait shoot. It’s a lovely, relaxed way to get to know people. When we are photographing a couple (or a family) this way, it’s all about taking time to play, experiment, get really comfortable, and just have a great time. Sometimes it’s a […]

Love + Baseball

Claire and I are both Giants fans, but that didn’t stop us from being almost giddy that Sophia & Tim had access to the Oakland A’s field for their engagement shoot.  I mean – how fun is it to be able to set foot on a major league ball field, actually sit in their dugouts, […]
