What had been a cold, windy couple of days turned into a very beautiful day for my adventures with Eric and Alyssa. The day was filled with excitement as I traveled to San Francisco to spend half a day with Eric and Alyssa for their engagement session. My career as a professional wedding photographer is truly a great blessing. I get to travel the state, seeing great sights where ever couples in love contract my services. It was great to get to know Eric and Alyssa, spend the day laughing and joking around and capturing these pictures. The only awkward moment for the day was when we noticed the completely naked older man on the beach just sitting there completely exposed. Well I’ll leave it at that. Here’s to celebrating Eric and Alyssa as they build a bridge of love!
We started the shoot at San Francisco City Hall. It was a holiday so the building was closed and we had no opportunity to shoot inside with its’ glorious ceilings and halls. However, the outside is cool too!
To me there is nothing better than capturing a couple’s candid joy and laughter! The below two photos encapsulate that to me.
In case you are wondering, the below/left photo is a reflection of Eric and Alyssa in the pond at the Japanese Garden in Golden Gate Park.
Finally, we ended up at Baker Beach with the great view of the Golden Gate Bridge! By now, it did start to get a bit nippy but Eric and Alyssa did great! San Francisco is an excellent place for engagement pictures.
The day wouldn’t have been complete with out a great sunset! I was thrilled to see the sunset unfold in to this beauty!
A great day, a great couple…plenty of great memories. Thanks Eric and Alyssa! I’m excited to shoot your wedding towards the end of the year! Keep building that bridge of love!
