Karen & Jeff really thought of it all for their nautical themed Sutro Baths San Francisco engagement. From their location of choice, to their romantic sea inspired outfits, to the awesome boat props they brought along to customize their session- it was truly one I won’t forget! It was such a joy to photograph these two under the golden California setting sun, sea breeze swirling around us as the waves crashed up on the rocky shore.
The couple decided on having a nautical themed engagement and wedding because of their rich history together. Karen and Jeff grew up together as next door neighborhoods off of Anchor Drive, so the theme of their love story goes way, way back to their shared childhood. Their proposal also followed suit as Jeff proposed to Karen while they were vacationing in the beautiful Hawaii. The two were on a hike up a mountain top, with the beautiful crystal clear water in view with Jeff got down on one knee and asked Karen to marry him. This fall they will be getting married as a stunning venue- The Lighthouse at Glen Cove Marina, to really tie their love story theme together.
To Karen & Jeff- thank you again for allowing me to photograph this magical time in your lives together as you guys inch closer and closer to becoming husband and wife after almost nearly a decade together! You two looked absolutely amazing together and I had so much fun frolicking around Sutro Baths with you two. You guys were so excellent and rocking the cat walk with all your various poses. I won’t forget how brave you both where to stand on that tiny end piece and still rocking you posing, so close to the water on three of your four sides! Or how amazingly cute the props you guys brought with were. I give you so many creativity points! If this is how magical your engagement session was- then I am beyond thrilled to see what a great time we will have at your Lighthouse at Glen Cove Marina wedding this November! I can’t wait!
