Skye + Brent – love’s adventure on the lake!

What is it that makes your life complete? Lisa and I were just driving to a wedding yesterday and she looked over to me as I drove us there, took my hand and let me know why she loved me so much. She told me that the greatest thing we do together is dream. It is also not that we just dream together but so many of our dreams become a reality. They do so because we somehow find time to focus on the reality that those dreams can become. We work in this crazy harmony to create what makes us happy! That feeling and connection is something I love when I get to see it in other couples. Skye and Brent have this sweet and fun loving connection together. If you are not having fun with them I do not know what is wrong with you. Brent is this strong but kind guy who keeps Skye laughing and smiling at each new corner we turn. For their engagement session we ended out at Pinecrest Lake. It is a place where he would spend summers hiking, swimming, and boating the days away. He then started to bring Skye up as well to hike, and have fun in a place that was special to him. Skye and Brent I can not believe we are now less than a year away to your amazing wedding…Lisa and I can not wait to see you soon! Thank you so much for believing in us and sharing your love.

Nate + Shearlene – love in Maui!

Nate and Shearlene are beyond sweet. Nate came into Shearlene’s life and quickly became her rock, her friend, her love, and her life! The same went for the infectiously fun Shearlene, as she quickly brightened each new day for Nate. They were engaged last year in Maui and Nate shared that time with Jayden, Shearlene’s son. Since Maui now was becoming a very special place for them…what better place to have their wedding? They found Olowalu Plantation house and fell in love with the beauty that Maui has to offer. Who would not want to get married here? Since Nate’s family is from the midwest they chose to celebrate their family reunion there and all of Shearlene’s family came out as well. You will notice that there are tons of beautiful crafts at the wedding too. Shearlene enlisted all her friends to come help cut paper, and craft the evenings away at home. She made everything at the wedding and shipped it all over to Maui. Lisa and I could not believe how special and personal they made their wedding. Thank you again Nate and Shearlene for believing in what we do and allowing us to tell your love story! The Olawalu Plantation House was the perfect setting!Olowalu Plantation House 001 photoOlowalu Plantation House 003 photoOlowalu Plantation House 006 photoaOlowalu Plantation House 007 photoOlowalu Plantation House 008 photoOlowalu Plantation House 009 photoOlowalu Plantation House 010 photoOlowalu Plantation House 011 photoOlowalu Plantation House 012 photoOlowalu Plantation House 013 photoOlowalu Plantation House 062 photoOlowalu Plantation House 014 photoOlowalu Plantation House 015 photoOlowalu Plantation House 016 photoOlowalu Plantation House 041 photoOlowalu Plantation House 040 photoOlowalu Plantation House 065 photoOlowalu Plantation House 017 photoOlowalu Plantation House 018 photoOlowalu Plantation House 019 photoOlowalu Plantation House 020 photoOlowalu Plantation House 021 photoOlowalu Plantation House 022 photoOlowalu Plantation House 023 photoOlowalu Plantation House 024 photoOlowalu Plantation House 025 photoOlowalu Plantation House 028 photoOlowalu Plantation House 029 photoOlowalu Plantation House 030 photoOlowalu Plantation House 031 photoOlowalu Plantation House 032 photoOlowalu Plantation House 033 photoOlowalu Plantation House 034 photoOlowalu Plantation House 035 photoOlowalu Plantation House 036 photoOlowalu Plantation House 037 photoOlowalu Plantation House 038 photoOlowalu Plantation House 039 photoOlowalu Plantation House 044 photoOlowalu Plantation House 042 photoOlowalu Plantation House 043 photoOlowalu Plantation House 054 photoOlowalu Plantation House 046 photoOlowalu Plantation House 049 photoOlowalu Plantation House 048 photoOlowalu Plantation House 050 photoOlowalu Plantation House 051 photoOlowalu Plantation House 052 photoOlowalu Plantation House 053 photoOlowalu Plantation House 055 photoOlowalu Plantation House 097 photoOlowalu Plantation House 098 photoOlowalu Plantation House 100 photoaOlowalu Plantation House 101 photoOlowalu Plantation House 112 photoOlowalu Plantation House 117 photoOlowalu Plantation House 102 photoOlowalu Plantation House 104 photoOlowalu Plantation House 105 photoOlowalu Plantation House 056 photoOlowalu Plantation House 108 photoOlowalu Plantation House 110 photoaOlowalu Plantation House 111 photoOlowalu Plantation House 113 photoOlowalu Plantation House 116 photoOlowalu Plantation House 115 photoOlowalu Plantation House 120 photoOlowalu Plantation House 121 photoOlowalu Plantation House 122 photoOlowalu Plantation House 123 photoOlowalu Plantation House 124 photoOlowalu Plantation House 125 photoOlowalu Plantation House 127 photoOlowalu Plantation House 128 photoOlowalu Plantation House 129 photoOlowalu Plantation House 130 photoOlowalu Plantation House 131 photoOlowalu Plantation House 134 photoOlowalu Plantation House 136 photoOlowalu Plantation House 138 photoOlowalu Plantation House 139 photoOlowalu Plantation House 141 photoOlowalu Plantation House 142 photoOlowalu Plantation House 145 photoOlowalu Plantation House 143 photo

Anmol + Priya – a San Francisco adventure!

Love will take us on whatever crazy journey we will allow it to take us. It is not about willing love, or being a victim of it, but it is about allowing yourself to be open to the change ahead. Anmol and Priya are absolutely adorable as you will see! We think going to a couple’s home is such an intimate place to start, especially in SF. It is a city where you tend to spend a lot of time in the city instead of living in your home. Anmol and Priya do exactly that. We walked their neighborhood and since City Hall is just a block away we decided it would be the perfect place to start their engagement session. They do not plan on always living in SF but they have spent their entire relationship together in this city. After City hall we headed back to the apartment so we could get ready to head down to the same pier they chatted a long night away when they first starting dating. It was the perfect end of the evening as the sun set into a beautiful blue dusk waking the city lights. As we all walked away from the pier together Anmol quietly took off his jacket, to quickly warm Priya’s shoulders that were chilled in the brisk air. Their sweet, gentle, and honest love shined through each moment we captured and only keeps the excitement going forward for their wedding next year. Thank you so much for believing in what we do. See you both soon!San Francisco City Hall Engagement Session 001 photoSan Francisco City Hall Engagement Session 002 photoSan Francisco City Hall Engagement Session 003 photoSan Francisco City Hall Engagement Session 004 photoSan Francisco City Hall Engagement Session 005 photoSan Francisco City Hall Engagement Session 006 photoSan Francisco City Hall Engagement Session 007 photoSan Francisco City Hall Engagement Session 008 photoSan Francisco City Hall Engagement Session 009 photoSan Francisco City Hall Engagement Session 010 photoSan Francisco City Hall Engagement Session 012 photoSan Francisco City Hall Engagement Session 013 photoSan Francisco City Hall Engagement Session 014 photoSan Francisco City Hall Engagement Session 015 photoSan Francisco City Hall Engagement Session 016 photoSan Francisco City Hall Engagement Session 017 photoSan Francisco City Hall Engagement Session 021 photoSan Francisco City Hall Engagement Session 019 photoSan Francisco City Hall Engagement Session 020 photoSan Francisco City Hall Engagement Session 022 photoSan Francisco City Hall Engagement Session 023 photoSan Francisco City Hall Engagement Session 026 photoSan Francisco City Hall Engagement Session 027 photoSan Francisco City Hall Engagement Session 028 photoSan Francisco City Hall Engagement Session 030 photoSan Francisco City Hall Engagement Session 031 photoSan Francisco City Hall Engagement Session 032 photoSan Francisco City Hall Engagement Session 033 photoSan Francisco City Hall Engagement Session 034 photo

Rachael + Peter – fun on the lake!

Are there a million ways to make a person smile? It is not a question I ask myself on a regular basis, but it is instead something Lisa and I experience all the time as we meet new couples. We are forced to see love, not for it’s similarities but its differences that enable us to all have an individual experience of what love is, and a shared idea of what love is. We each smile and create smiles for ourselves, loved ones and even strangers in passing, but it is the choice of whether or not you wear that smile each day that really creates a ripple of change. Your smile to a stranger could alter their day from ordinary to extraordinary and you never know it, but in that same instance that returned smile could have done the same thing to you. You future altered because you chose to smile at someone you did not know.  There can be so many pieces of life and love that tie us together. Peter and Rachael fell in love at a time when working out was their lives. Rachael today is an amazing dancer, while Peter may be an amazing Business Manager, he is still in the gym early in the morning at a time I do not believe exists. He supports Rachael with her crazy schedules, and makes her laugh and smile sometimes uncontrollably. We saw it over and over again from both Peter and Rachael. His goofiness is what makes Rachael happy. They are also the most comfortable in workout clothes. It makes sense, Rachael lives in them and Peter would not mind it if he could wear them to work. Thank you so much for sharing your evening with Lisa and I in West Shore Lake Tahoe. We could not be more excited to celebrate their wedding day this winter in Tahoe!
