{Shu-En + Brian} San Francisco Engagement Session

Shu-En and Brian planned ahead and decided it would be fantastic to have their engagement session in San Francisco- where they are now living.  They decided for the genuine San Francisco experience…well, they got it! It was a cold, windy, foggy afternoon! The good news is this…Shu-En and Brian are completely in love and a little breeze didn’t deter them.  I love it when my clients go with the flow and know how to bust out the laughter in any situation!

From the moment I met this couple, I was smiling! They have a way about them that is incredibly sweet and funny! They are a pleasure to photograph because the joy and energy that you see in these images is all theirs! Can’t wait for their wedding this summer!

{he asked…and she said yes!} Napa Valley Wedding Proposal Photography

Early Saturday AM:

Right now a lovely un-expecting woman is waking up on a gorgeous Napa Valley morning. What she doesn’t know is that in a few short hours her boyfriend will ask for her hand! (and I get to document it- Ninja-photographer like) Good stuff!


 Ok…I’m getting nervous. They should appear any moment.


There they are. Oh my…look at her smile. She is beyond thrilled. SO surprised and just giddy with joy! He pulled it off- she had no idea and has an amazing proposal story! Oh did I mention…she said yes!

{She Said Yes!}

Proposal-24Last week, Oscar called me with his grand plan. ( Gentlemen…take note…this is a great idea!) It was Nancy’s birthday, so he swept her to the Napa Valley for the weekend to give her the time & love she deserved. As they headed out to the their dinner, I walked around the corner to surprise her. She thought that I was there to take portraits of them for a birthday present….Proposal-70

But she got another surprise as well! She said, “Yes, Yes..of course Yes!” Well done Oscar! Proposal-87Proposal-109
