Here’s why I love engagement sessions: couples are usually so overwhelmed with the tight wedding day schedule – so there’s a limited amount of time a photographer gets to actually interact with his/her subjects. At engagement sessions, however, the atmosphere is much more relaxed because the bride and groom are alone and have time to enjoy each other. Basically, just to have fun.
Currently living in Texas, Gaby and Ryan will have their destination wedding out here in San Francisco this Fall. It was so fun for me to photograph them and explore the attractions in the City through their fresh eyes. You know how people say that you just know it when you are in love? Gaby and Ryan are the kind of couple every couple wish they could be. The rapport between them was just magnetic – I didn’t even have to pose them. They have such great style and are adventurous, dodging trains and stopping traffic to steal a kiss. Gaby and Ryan were just instantly photogenic.
My only tip: don’t make out with a scruffie! Gaby’s face was raw after kissing Ryan.
