Leah & Quentin

I had the pleasure of meeting Leah & Quentin a couple of weeks ago for their Thursday wedding last week. I swear, it feels like I've known them forever! Such a wonderful couple. They have been together for 11 years and thought that what better day to get married on than their 11th anniversary! Hence, the Thursday wedding. The decision to exchange their vows on a weekday had no hindrance on their loved ones making it to the wedding! It was an incredible day and very emotional ceremony. Leah and Quentin decided to see each other before the ceremony which allowed us about 2 hours to shoot around! Because of this... this blog post is HUGE!

Ceremony & Reception: Berkeley City Club
Flowers: Karen, Grandi-Flora

Naroth & Melvin

I like to ask my couples about places that are special to them, like where they first met or what they do for fun, to incorporate into their engagement session. To me, it makes the session that much more personal to them as a couple. Melvin and Naroth wanted the session to include where they first met AND where they shared their first kiss. FUN! So we started at Union Square in SF where they first met. I had them sitting in the middle of all the movement of people and told them to just enjoying one another. As I looked through my lens, I noticed that they kept looking over shoulder's and were more focused on their surroundings than connecting with one another. I quickly realized that they weren't sooooo comfortable being exposed just yet, so we opted for a few more private locations where it was just the three of us together to get them used t the camera. After that - it was magic!!!

Their next location was the movie theaters at the Metrion and fortunately, there weren't that many people around and they didn't kick us out! So we played a little with the theater doors, popcorn stand and escalators :) Once we were finished with the theater, we picked a few more local spots for some fun nuzzle action and sun flair. They are so cute, I just can't wait for their wedding later this year!

Don't you just LOVE Melvin's bling?
