COUPLES SESSIONS & ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHY

Maybe you envision yourself somewhere in the Mojave desert, watching the stars at night with your partner by a campfire and dancing to melancholic melodies.

Jessica & Brian

Jessica, Brian and their dog Lily adventured along the dramatic coastline of California's Big Sur. The locations we chose for their engagement featured rugged rocks and beautiful sceneries of serene beaches.  They put on their outfits, hiking shoes, backpacks and off we went to explore the trails near the Pacific. At sunset, they celebrated with bubbly to complete the perfect experience. 

Elisebeth & Trevor

Elisebeth and Trevor just relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area from Minnesota and recently celebrated their 5th wedding anniversary. The location we chose for their engagement featured all things California, eucalyptus forests, coastline, meadows of golden grass and a  lot of San Francisco fog, also known as Karl.  Their vibrant outfits played out perfectly with the backdrop of Marin Headlands. 

Ayla & Sam

Ayla and Sam chose to have their couples session in their Ann Arbor home just weeks before they moved to Seattle. We wanted to capture their space in photographs in a playful way, so we incorporated some fun shots of them having a pilow fight. Their home served as a perfect intimate setting with lush plants and a comfortable lounge space.  

Alex & Archie

Alex and Archie live in San Francisco and just recently got married in their home, while they broadcasted their ceremony to their friends and family over the internet. San Francisco summers are cold and foggy, but it didn't deter us from a fantastic couples session. They posed at Sutro Baths, while they kept each other warm with hugs, kisses, tickles  and occasional running.   

Fiona & Brian

Fiona and Brian live in the Windy City, which truly  didn't disappoint. The wind and sun in Fiona's hair helped us create beautiful authentic imagery in photogenic urban spaces of Chicago's downtown as well as the beach of Lake Michigan. They will be getting married back in Michigan next May.
