Just Love at the Palace of Fine Arts

 

I love when couples reach out just to shoot for the sake of their love for each other, no big milestone or event but just because. I went to Cal Poly San Luis Obispo with Malia and even had the opportunity to shoot her senior portraits so was excited when she reached out again.

When we decided on the Palace of Fine Arts, I was stoked, I knew the light would be stunning. However, we made a rookie mistake of doing the session on a Saturday when there were a million people, not to mention a photographer meet up. Nonetheless we made do, it was a great session with beautiful light and Malia and Alex’s chemistry was undeniable!

 

Black Sands Beach Anniversary

 

What better way to celebrate a year of wins, losses, challenges, accomplishments, disagreements, and love. I spent an evening with Ann and Kilol at Black Sands Beach in Marin. They danced and spun, falling and laughing as the sun dipped behind the rocks, to commemorate the first of year of the rest of their life together.

 

Beth // James Above the Clouds | Mt. Tamalpais, Marin

 

Mikaela and Jordan hail from Austin, Texas and stopped in San Francisco for our session atop Mt. Tam before driving up north for their Northwest Tour. They are a lovely and down to earth couple and Indie folk duo. 

It was a cold day in San Francisco, and as we crossed the Golden Gate Bridge we were nervous about the heavy cloud coverage. But as we drove up towards the top we were greeted by the sun and found ourselves above the thick layer of clouds. To our surprise, we caught a warm evening on Mt. Tam as these two shared stories of where they are from, how they met, and even some travel tips. We watched the sun dip over the horizon, creating the perfectly colored sky before checking for ticks and hoping back in the car to make the trek back down.
