From the Couple: Conrad & Taylor met the old fashioned way- through mutual friends in San Francisco.Â Naturally, their first interaction involved a costume as they were dressed in ultra-preppy clothing for Taylorâ€™s 26thÂ birthday bar crawl- the MacKinnon Invitational.Â Over the next few months, they kept running into each other at various social events- game night, house parties, birthday dinners for friends.Â At one such dinner, Taylor & Conrad got to talking about their shared interest in boating, so Taylor invited Conrad to join a group of friends on a house boating trip to Lake Shasta.Â When they boarded the vessel, Taylor sought for a co-captain and of course the first person to step up to the position was Conrad.Â Over the course of the weekend, fueledÂ by teamwork managing the boat and a few drinks to provide courage, Taylor and Conrad spent a lot of time talking and getting to know each otherÂ better.Â One night, the wind shifted and the friendship started to feel different- this was the start of their new relationship.Â Over the past 6 years, Taylor & Conrad have been on many adventures together domestic and abroad, and even survived 2.5 years of long distance in their relationship.Â Now the fun continues together in San Francisco!
We started theirÂ engagement session at Sutro Baths which is one of my all time favorite places in San Francisco. Â The sun was out and Conrad and Taylor brought their laughs, love for each other, and of course libations! Â It was all going smoothly until the Nature Cops were called on us. Â Oh! Â So those ropes blocking off thatÂ forested area is there to keep us out? Â Got it. Â But we need to get just this one shot so….ya.Â Just another day of shooting with Heather. Â China Beach was next on the hit list and to wrap up their beach session, they brought a giant confetti cannon, which is obviously a brilliant idea for any occasion Â Â TheyÂ were having so muchÂ fun together at the beach that when they gotÂ drenched by aÂ giant wave, they just laughed it off and let the next one hit them too. Â These twoÂ are my kind of people! Â Admittedly, it was kinda my fault, but theyÂ were game for a little risky business, so we are still friends 🙂 Â Congrats Taylor & Conrad!
