Jess & Stef’s Easygoing Engagement Session in San Francisco / Bay Area Wedding Photographer

Shooting my sister’s engagement was super fun and memorable. Since her and her fiancé live in San Francisco, we wanted to make the most of the amazing locations there. They have a quaint, urban backyard with their neighbors lemon tree overgrowing into their space that made for a great photo op, so we began there (the last photo). Then we traveled to the Palace of Fine Arts, a favorite for any photographer because the architecture is to die for. Jessica and Stefan met while riding bikes on Hawk Hill, so that was the location we were ending at, but the road ended up being closed, so we walked down to a nearby beach with the Marin Headlands and Golden Gate in the background. They’re getting married in August at Arista Winery in Healdsburg, CA. Can’t wait to celebrate!

All images taken on my Contax 645 with a mix of Fujifilm and Kodak films and scanned by the Find Lab.
