I was recently out in San Francisco for a workshop, and while there, shot this romantic San Francisco engagement session for my best friend, Miss Laura, and her great fiance, Dan. We wandered around their adorable home in the Mission and also went out to the Embarcadero and the Bay Bridge before the fog became too much! I adore (adore) San Francisco and try to spend as much time out there as possible; this was my third time shooting there, and I never tire of it. So many beautiful stoops, gorgeous colors of buildings and flowers, and always perfect shooting weather. Can’t wait to go back again.

Laura and I met in Chicago several years ago while we were freelancing for a website—writing and photographing—and bonded over a love of Top Chef, food and cocktails, and karaoke. When she decided to move back home to the Bay Area a few years ago, I was a bit crushed, despite knowing it was the best choice for her. I went to visit her for New Years 2009 and while there she was telling me about a new guy she was planning to go out with. I could tell she was excited, but little did I know that man would end up being Dan, her fiance! I think my friends would describe me as a fiercely loyal friend and a bit of a mother hen—I put up with no shenanigans from my friend’s significant other’s and want only the best people to end up with my closest friends! After having met Dan several times, I could not be happier for him to be marrying Laura, and by proxy, to be joining a little piece of my little friend family. 🙂  A million mazels to you both!
