When I was on the West Coast, I was able to do this San Francisco session for Liz and Pat. They are just a wonderful couple from Chicago who relocated out to the Bay Area recently, and it was such fun to get to know them and share our experiences of both cities. We were able to shoot a bit around their home in the Mission and then go up to this amazing park on top of a hill. My favorite part about shooting in SF is all of the micro climates and how quickly the look of the environment can change. It was absolutely amazing, reminding me so much of remote Northern California but somehow being smack dab in the middle of the city. We approached this shoot a little differently, a little more organically, just exploring the area together and shooting what we liked on the way and letting the cinematic, moody vibe of the misty hilltop inform the look of the photos. Liz is a wonderful photographer in her own right (check her out on Instagram—one of my favorite accounts!), and the shoot felt like a wonderful collaboration. Thanks for such a lovely time! xoxo
