Tim + Melissa Engagement

I have had the pleasure of knowing both Tim and Melissa for some years now, and I was ecstatic when Tim FINALLY popped the magical question.  I was honored when they chose me to be their wedding photographer, and it has been a blast working with them throughout their engagement.

For this engagement session we met at Lands End in San Francisco on a sunny but very windy day.  We had postponed the photo shoot due to two consecutive weeks of rain.  We also met the next day at the Embarcadero to get some beautiful shots of San Francisco Bay Bridge.  Tim and Melissa are obviously deep in love, and keep each other laughing and smiling.  It was a joy to just be around them and to document their love for each other.

I look forward to photographing their wedding on April 9th!

Raquan + Luci Proposal

On the morning of Saturday, February 20, 2016, I had the honor and the pleasure of documenting a momentous occasion.  My dear friend Raquan proposed to his girlfriend Luci, right in the middle of Ocean Beach, in San Francisco.

As a wedding photographer, I have documented special moments between a husband and wife before, and have even shot engagement sessions for couples planning on getting married.  But this was the first time that I got to document a guy getting on one knee, and proposing to his unsuspecting girlfriend.  It was a beautiful moment that he allowed me to share in, and I will never forget it.

I was also able to provide them same-day edits; as I created a musical slideshow with their photos to be presented later that day at their engagement party.  I literally sat in my car and imported the photos into Lightroom, and edited the 25 best shots.  I then had to drive down to the engagement party, while my wife created the slideshow in iPhoto.  

I look forward to being their wedding photographer, and producing a same-day edit of the wedding ceremony.  As a professional photographer, I love being able to build long lasting relationships with my clients.  With this couple I have already been able to provide them with engagement photos, soon there will be wedding photography, and not to mention their baby boy is due any week now, so I will provide newborn photography as well.
