We first met Ariel and David at another wedding back in 2015, so we were thrilled when we heard that they were engaged! Both lovers of film, they decided to do something unique for their engagement shoot: a film noir style shoot right where Hitchcock’s Vertigo was filmed at Fort Point in San Francisco. We were immediately obsessed with the idea and started counting down the days until the photoshoot.
For us, this photoshoot was a big treat. The popular wedding style is to look bright with lots of light, high key images. This shoot allowed us to play with heavy contrast, stark lighting and deep blacks. Engagement photos are the perfect time to play with different styles and find a unique venue to pose with!
Ariel and David had such a fun time with their shoot, and it shows through in their images. They have spent most of their lives in San Francisco, so shooting underneath the iconic Golden Gate Bridge was perfect. Plus, it gave them the chance to step in front of the camera and into one of the old movies they love so much.
After seeing their wonderful and creative idea for an engagement shoot, we literally cannot wait to see what they have planned for their wedding!
