Did you just recently get engaged and are looking for the perfect photographer to capture a few pre-wedding moments between you and your fiance? There is no more romantic place to spend the afternoon than the Japanese Tea Garden in Golden Gate Park.

Alyssa and Kyle will be getting married in July of this year in Vallejo California at their congregation church. The two were the sweetest couple. They were really excited about having their photos taken and loved the whole planning process to get the perfect photos. When I work with couples pre-wedding it’s an opportunity for me to get to know them pre-wedding day jitters and just the two of them. I highly encourage all my couples to have an engagement session as a warm up to their big day where they can practise poses, smiling, and of course the kiss (-ahem! who would not want to practise that part)

I asked Alyssa and Kyle to send me photos of what their outfits were before the shoot to ensure that we were photographing in the most optimal location to show them off. We had a quick wardrobe swap out pre shoot as a few of the outfits were to light in shade or had distracting patterns. Luckily since I take such great in care in the planning process I was not surprised when they brought out their outfits.

After we strolled through the Japanese Tea Garden we walked over to the Music Concourse and  Stow Lake and took some stunning photos of them on the bridge and on the island. The light was just amazing that day and as you can see from the photos the two of them were beaming with love.

Thanks so much for a great shoot Alyssa and Kyle and I look forward to your wedding day.

Here Comes The Guide Approved Wedding Photography – from a top san francisco wedding and engagement photographer

I’m so so so excited to be part of the approved Here Comes the Guide Wedding Photographer list. It’s no easy task to be a part of this list. Brides, Grooms, Wedding Planners, Florists and Wedding vendors needed to be contacted and interviewed about their experiences with me as a photographer and service provider to the wedding industry. If I was not up to snuff, I did not get to be part of the elite group of Wedding Photographers.
