FIND IT FAST
A San Francisco Engagement Session. Even though San Francisco is only a few hours away, we only visit a few times a year at most. We’re not big city girls. Give us an old home town rich with history, white picket fence lined streets, neighborhoods filled with the smell of peonies and wisteria, and markets where everyone knows your name. That is our happy place.
We met Riley and Jordan a few months ago as they are planning their Santa Cruz wedding later this year. Listening to their love story as they met on shuttle commute through the city they both took daily. Slowly Jordan started taking the seat next to Riley where they would share hours of conversation and quickly became the highlight of both their days. Even though they’re planning a Santa Cruz wedding, what a better place for their engagement session that back to the city where it all began!
We scoured areas of San Francisco trying to find the perfect locations, depending a lot of Google. We wanted this San Francisco engagement session to be epic, but that was tough when we didn’t live there! Riley dreamed of a red wood forest setting, and then of course the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. We sent them over at least a half dozen ideas we had found and finally we had settled on three since they were all so close to one another.
We’re still in aw that we started in what looked like a deep red wood forest, when we were actually right in the middle of downtown San Francisco! Seriously, we couldn’t believe it! We continued to hug the Lands End coast, while visiting historic sites along the way, before ending at the beach. The sun was shining, and even though it was a bit chilly, it was one amazing day! These two together produce so much magic, you can literately see the spark. We couldn’t imagine having more fun on an engagement session than we did with these two and cannot wait for their September wedding later this year!
