I was so thrilled when Jenna reached out about her wedding since I’d met her a year prior shooting her sister’s wedding. I love it when I get to photograph multiple events for a family. In a way I start to feel like part of the gang and it feels good both a photographer and a friend at a wedding. If anything stood out to me about Jenna and Mike when we first met, it was their undeniable love for each other. They exchanged snuggles and looks of admiration as they told me their love story, and I knew right then that they would be so easy to photograph. I was right! They go together like wine and cheese (yes please!) and were so comfortable with each other and the camera, that all I had to do was snap away!
When Jenna and Mike asked for my help on choosing an Engagement Session location, Fort Baker was the first place to come to mind! In my opinion, it is the forgotten Golden Gate Bridge viewing spot and yet it is such a spectacular location as you are almost under the bridge! But as San Francisco summers would have it, there was no bridge in site for our photo shoot! Darn you Karl! (what SFers named the fog) I am so glad the misty air and fog didn’t discourage them as it turned out to be a gorgeous day in its own right. We started at Fort Baker and took advantage of the textured walls and what little slice of the Golden Gate Bridge there was. It wasn’t until we got to the Marin Headlands where the fog really came to life and put to sleep everything within it’s reach. We couldn’t see more than a few yards in front of us and needless to say the bridge was nowhere to be seen. Regardless, we had a good time and made the most of Karl’s little shenanigans. Congrats Jenna & Mike!
