Mervin + Angie – Sutro Baths Engagement

The journey to find the love of your life might take you across mountains, across states, flying between continents, over a river or through the woods, or maybe she is just 4 minutes away from your house and you were so close but never knew it. It is kind of fun when the love you were always looking for is literally around the corner and all you had to do was go outside and be present. Angie and Mervin had mutual friends for longer than either of them would have guessed before hanging out one evening with all of their friends at a haunted house. One side note is before their first meeting Mervin had already heard of this cute girl who moved back home to California from NY who was single and really cute. Lucky for Mervin, his friend was not lying on either of those statements. Haunted houses were not Angie’s favorite thing but Mervin turned out to be the big scaredy cat, hiding from all the scary things. Seeing this, Angie decided to chat with Mervin and come up with a solution for their fears. They decided to run hand in hand and surprise the unsuspecting haunted house employees instead of being the ones scared. When I first heard this I could imagine these two running around laughing and having a blast.

Fun and laughter is a defining thing in their relationship. It is always infectious when Mervin starts to be a bit goofy and gets not only Angie laughing, but everyone who is surrounding them becomes filled to the brim with joy because of the infectious fun they create together. Lisa and I finally met these two in person last friday when we photographed their engagement session at Sutro Baths in San Francisco. The thing is, we already knew so much about each other it was as if we were hugging friends we had not seen in months. I knew how infectious Mervin was and how sweet and kind Angie was going to be, and trust me they were exactly how I knew they were going to be. Playful is really saying lightly in describing how these two are for each other. They support each other when they need it, like Mervin having Angie hop on his back so she didn’t have to walk down a steep hill in high heels or Angie supporting Mervin while he is tying his shoes on the edge of a cliff. They are just perfectly intertwined in their love for each other and honestly it shows. There are so many details I could go on about their relationship and how these two people make everyone around them become better people but I will save that for the wedding. For now please enjoy their beautiful engagement session, and know that our hearts are overflowing with joy and thankfulness that we were able to capture your love Angie and Mervin! See you soon!

Jennifer + Tiffany – Lands End, San Francisco

For so many of us, adventures are a necessary part of our lives. For some of us, an adventure is watching a new movie on the couch with the love of our life, and for others it is a weekend of backpacking 15 miles together hand in hand across mountain tops. These two most certainly enjoy both of these, but I will be honest, if there is a choice, they will always choose hike. So what better thing to do for their engagement session than a little hike? For Jennifer and Tiffany, San Francisco is this perfect getaway for them so we went for a quiet hike at Lands End. They fell in love with the beauty and seclusion that this place has to offer. One moment you are deep in San Francisco and a few steps later you are hidden deep in a forest. I can not wait to celebrate their beautiful wedding this summer! Thank you so much for having me capture your beautiful love story!

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!
