One of the hardest parts about my job is writing these posts. Not because I have nothing to say, but rather, because I love my couples so much and I love with working with them so completely, that I fear all of my posts will come out the same. I really do feel incredibly lucky that I get to work with the smart, funny, utterly beautiful couples that I do. Ivy and Tristan are such a special couple to me. Ivy likes to say that "they did everything backwards." They actually got married years ago and they have two whip smart, adorable sons. But they didn't get the chance to do a big wedding and so, a year ago, Tristan got down on one knee and asked Ivy to marry him...again. Naturally she said yes. We did their engagement shoot at the gorgeous San Juan Capistrano Mission and a little later at the beach, where they brought their sons to join us. They are such a fun couple to work with, they clearly love each other and their family so much and they just seem to love to laugh. I just loved every moment of this shoot and by far the hardest part of the whole thing was choosing which photos, out of so many gorgeous options, were the best.
It was so hard for me to choose photos for this blog post, you guys. This engagement session with Amy and Clark ranks among my favorite shoots ever and I just loved every shot we had from this session. They're just the coolest couple; one of those couples that just make me feel like the luckiest girl in the world to have the chance to work with such amazing people. Amy and Clark live in San Francisco, so Phi and I drove up there for the weekend to shoot their engagement in Golden Gate Park. I'd never shot in San Francisco before, and I have to say...I'm in love. The park is gorgeous with it's big, tall trees and and the weather that day was perfect, not too sunny and not too gloomy. We rented a boat on Stow Lake and paddled around just as the sun was sinking a bit in the sky and then headed to the beach for some final sunset photos. Seriously, it was such an epic day and I am beyond excited to get a chance to hang with Amy and Clark again when we shoot their wedding in August. So much love guys!!
