Engagement photography sessions are such fun and it gives me and my clients to get to know each other before their wedding. I can give direction that might sound funny but after my clients see the photos they understand why I had them do it. Then, on the day of their beautiful wedding they remember what I said so there is a trust and understanding of how the process works. I had so much fun getting Aime and Brian to laugh and put their attention on each other. They have such a great love for each other and it shows in their engagment photos!
Such a fantastic morning as I was lucky enough to hide and be a “spy” my other secret favorite profession. Matthew called to say he was going to propose to his longterm (that’s 9 years) , Jackie, at Gravity Hill above Petaluma in Penngrove. So he sent me a pin and I met him on the top of the hill and there is literally nowhere to hide. So I get out of the car which my camera and my huge 200 mm lens and ask, “Do you know what valley that is? I was hired by a real estate company to take a photo of a certain valley.” Then, I introduced myself to make sure indeed, This was Matthew and Jackie. It most certainly was. So….I sauntered up the hill and pretended to take photos of the landscapes when Matthew bent down on one knee and popped the question. Of course she said yes….Look at those in love, happy faces. Congratulations Matthew and Jackie!
