They met the old fashioned way. Â At a bar of course! Isn’t that where we all met our husbands pre-online dating? Â Guilty! Anyway, Lauren and Andrew’s story began in Russian Hill at a popular SF tavern. Â It was nearing the end of the night when Andrew noticed a very pretty girl walk into the bar. Â As sheÂ made her way past him, she couldn’t help but notice Andrew looking at her with “hungry eyes”. Â She wasn’t in the mood for any flirtatious small talk, but Andrew approached her and eventually Lauren let him buy her a drink. After a few minutes of chatting they came to realize their social circles had a few mutual friends ANDÂ that they literally lived across the street from each other! Â They were destined to meet eventually, right?!Â Â They exchanged phone numbers and went out on their first date, the following Monday! Andrew pursued her, & Lauren loved it! They have been together ever since and now live in Walnut Creek with their show-stopping, adorable pup Guapo! Â We had so much fun shooting on The Embarcadero as well as their old Polk Street stomping grounds. Â They wanted this shoot to be silly and fun to reflect their personalities so we took some photosÂ to make fun of the cliche engagement shots! It was hilarious and definitely stoppedÂ passer byers in their tracks!
The bar where it all began! If you are local you know the secret password to get the gummy bears they serve in a shot glass behind the bar! Â I’ll give you a hint…Contra!
