I met up with Eden and Matt for their engagement session in Golden Gate park a few days ago and I swear the heavens shined the most beautiful light on us that I could have ever asked for. Anyone that has been to SF knows that there is often quite a bit of cloud cover in the city. I always cross my fingers and hope for some light to shine though when I make my way out there. And it could not have come out for a sweeter couple! Eden and Matt are so easy to be around and a joy to photograph. They are loving and funny with one another and they make my job easy. I can hardly wait for their wedding at Leal Vineyards in May!!
From the moment that Shannon and I first spoke, she kept saying "I feel like everything is just falling into place!! All my vendors just feel right!". I can't stress enough how important this is. Your wedding is such a special day, you want to surround yourself with people that make you feel calm and comfortable. That is another reason why engagement sessions are so awesome!! The three of us get a chance to chat, learn about each other and really get comfortable. Shannon, Erich and I had a lovely time during their engagement session, even though the wind did not seem to want to cooperate! They brought their adorable puppy and we walked around chatting and taking photos. When their wedding at the Westin in Sacramento rolls around next May, they will be pros :) I can hardly wait!

I love these two! They are so funny, and so adorable together. They have known each other since high school, but it took some convincing by friends (years later) to go out on a date together. They both finally agreed and they have been together ever since. I am so excited to watch them tie the knot this November at the Monte Verde Inn in Foresthill. I know it is going to be amazing!
