I know it’s cheesy to say this. My favorite part of being a wedding photographer is meeting the couples. I’ve always been one of those romantic, optimistic types. You know, the type that reads Pride & Prejudice once a month and cries watching Disney movies. I just love people in love. And nothing makes me happier than meeting two people who are so perfectly matched, it’s like the universe created them to be together. What can I say? I’m a sap.
Erika and Will are two such people. Just being around them one afternoon, I could immediately tell they are like yin and yang. Will’s boyish humor and Erika’s sweet demeanor are the perfect balance of fun and affection. They were so adorable together, I smiled the entire time I was shooting. As I watched how sweetly Erika interacted with Will, I couldn’t help but think, sessions like theirs make me grateful for my job.
We started out in Pacifica at Rockaway Beach in Pacifica for some fun, casual portraits. It was still quite sunny out at 5pm and warm by Pacifica standards. Erika picked this location, a perfect match for her sweet personality.
After Pacifica, we headed up at the Ferry Building for Will’s location pick. The city matched his fun personality. I had memories of my own engagement session while shooting this (we also explored the Embarcadero area).
Erika took off her shoes for this picture because she didn’t know I was going to take a full body shot. But I think it’s more adorable without the shoes.
Erika & Will, thanks for letting me drag you around the city in the cold.I can’t wait for your wedding in July!
