Located on the northwestern tip of San Francisco, Lands End boasts windswept, tree-lined trails overlooking the Golden Gate, its iconic bridge, San Francisco Bay, and the Pacific Ocean. It’s a wonderful spot for a (mostly) leisurely hike and we love when couples decide to do their engagement session there.
Ashleigh and Natalia were all sparkling smiles when we met up with them one gorgeous spring day, and we’re pretty sure that’s why whales felt comfortable frolicking nearby. Every few minutes our nature lovers would squeal with delight when they spied one, and we’ll admit it was a challenge keeping our lenses on them instead of the water whenever they did so! In the end, we were able to capture a smidgen of one as it cruised the ocean’s surface.
From there, we made our way to the Sutro Baths, where Ashleigh and Natalia snuggled and danced around its crumbling ruins until…

Seattleites Shae and Rye are getting married in Seattle next year but called upon us for a San Francisco engagement session that resonated deeply with our own musically inclined lifestyle.
“One of our mutual hobbies is seeing live music, and I went to a lot of punk and metalcore shows growing up in the Bay Area,” says Shae. “Rye did the same, but mostly in Chico, where he’s from. We go to a lot of shows and craft beer events and have a blast spending time together at those.”
When they decided on the Bottom of the Hill for their backdrop, we knew it’d be perfect for them.

It’s an incredible honor when friends call upon us to capture their wedding day, especially when one of those friends is a fellow martial artist and black belt. Lily and bride Kira trained together until Kira left for medical school in NYC, where she’d first lay eyes on classmate and future groom Vince. We had the pleasure of meeting him a few years ago when we photographed Kira’s best friend (and future matron of honor) Kelly’s wedding. Little did we know that we’d all reunite so soon for another joyous occasion!
Our thoughtful, fun-loving couple planned an amazing two-day getaway for their family and friends over Memorial Day weekend. The location? Trail’s End Camp in Beach Lake, PA, a lush, 450-acre retreat surrounded by the Pocono Mountains and outfitted with log cabins, giant tepees, a sandy beach, outdoor activities galore, and curious wildlife (hello, Mr. Fox!). We couldn’t believe it…

In the last year we’ve started a new travel video project. Between that and weddings I guess that’s why this blog has been sorta neglected with just the occasional re-blog of our wedding stuff. Now I wanna start sharing our travel series here too. Currently up to eight cities! Here’s Rome!
