Hanna and Nick – San Francisco Mount Sutro Engagement Session

Nick and Hanna are a fun and adventurous pair. You would never know that adventure sometimes starts right across the street from where they live. A walk across the street is all it takes to be instantly climbing to the top of Mount Sutro. It’s just one of the many reasons they choose this as their adorable first house together in San Francisco. We could not be more thankful to be allowed in to see into a little piece of their daily lives. The view from the house was absolutely beautiful. We were able to see Nick preparing snacks and making sure everything was perfect while Hanna finished getting ready for us to take a few photos. I loved the artwork on every wall in the house. They were all painted by Nick’s dad.  After a few photos in their house, we walked around their neighborhood and were taken on a beautiful hike up the Mountain. Lisa took one of my favorite photographs of these two looking off at their beautiful city. Since these two are living in the city then even had a Vespa in the garage and an ocean only a couple miles away. It was a perfect evening to see so many of the different sides of Nick and Hanna. Since the ocean was just down the street we ended there with a sunset that was glowing with pinks and purples. It was a sweet and calming end to an extremely enjoyable afternoon!

Allan & Lacey’s Engagement Session

Geoff and I had a blast shooting Allan and Lacey’s engagement session on Friday. We kicked things off by stopping in to one of the couple’s favorite hangout spots, an awesome pub called Fox and Goose. The light in this place was seriously glowing and beautiful!В After the pub we explored the surrounding few blocks of Downtown Sacramento.

Lacey and Allan are adorable. Their personalities seem to meshВ perfectlyВ with one another and it comes through in the photos. I couldn’t stop taking them! Their engagement gallery has a whopping 80 images. I had such a hard time even trying to keep the images in the post down to a reasonable number. Allan and Lacey, you guys were great and we cannot wait to shoot your wedding in May!

Enjoy the photos below and please take a look at the gallery to see more of Allan and Lacey’s awesome love!

Cale & Lana

I had so much fun photographing Cale and Lana. They are such a fun couple and so easy to work with. We went to a park in downtown Sacramento that had the most awesome playground! My fiancee Geoff and I shot this session together and I finally got to work with my new Canon 5D Mark II (which is flipping amazing, by the way!).

I seriously loved this session! Cale and Lana are so naturally photogenic not to mention totally in love. Cale is mucho handsome and Lana isВ absolutelyВ beautiful. Get a load ofВ theirВ hotness below. You can click the link to see all the photos, but I’ve posted my favorites below. Happy New Year!
