Ashlee & Paul’s Foggy San Francisco Engagement Shoot

Photography by ShootAnyAngle Photography, shootanyangle.com

It was a hot day in the rest of the Bay Area, but as we drove closer and closer to our final destination at Sutro Baths and Lands End in San Francisco, the fog rolled in along with cooler temperatures.  It was like a special little world had been created just for Ashlee and Paul’s engagement shoot!

Ashlee and Paul were the winners of our Ranch at Little Hills free engagement shoot giveaway, and we had so much fun with them!  They were ready for everything and anything, and they were just so happy to celebrate their love for each other.  They were all smiles, and we couldn’t help but smile along with them!

Congratulations, Ashlee and Paul!

Lindsay & Weston’s Sunflower Engagement Shoot

Photography by ShootAnyAngle Photography, shootanyangle.com

One of our favorite things about working with lots of couples is that we always hear lots of great and unique ideas for engagement shoots and weddings.  Lindsay and Weston told us at our first meeting that they loved the idea of shooting in a sunflower field.  Talk about fun!  We couldn’t wait to find the perfect farm, and we soon got in contact with Muller Ranch.  They were very kind and worked with us to find the best location.

We literally met Lindsay and Weston out in the middle of the farm land, but we couldn’t have been happier with the spot.  The sunflowers were gorgeous, and we were all alone in the beautiful scene.

Lindsay and Weston were so wonderful to photograph.  More than once we caught them whispering sweet things to each other.  They are so very much in love, and that’s what we love to capture!!

Megan & Ray’s Family Engagement Shoot

We absolutely love seeing couples that make each other laugh.  A simple look will send the other one giggling, and it’s not only incredibly sweet to witness, but it also makes for great photos!  Megan and Ray were laughing the whole time, and it made the shoot so much fun!

Megan and Ray chose the gorgeous Durst Winery as the backdrop for both their engagement shoot and their fall wedding.  Not only was it a great location for photography, but it was a wonderful spot for their kids to hang out with Grandma until they were ready to join us for photos.  We love that Megan and Ray chose to include their adorable little ones in their engagement shoot.  After all, the wedding will be a big day for the whole family!

Kristy & Kevin’s Lighthouse Engagement

Photos by ShootAnyAngle Photography, shootanyangle.comKevin popped the question at the Walton Lighthouse in Santa Cruz Harbor, so when we started planning their engagement shoot, they knew just where they wanted to have it!

Photos by ShootAnyAngle Photography, shootanyangle.comPhotos by ShootAnyAngle Photography, shootanyangle.comkristy_kevin.5When we saw them walking towards us, we could see from way off that they had absolutely huge smiles on their faces.  Their happiness was so infectious that we were all laughing the whole time!

Even being hosed by an incoming wave couldn’t damper their spirits.  They laughed and exclaimed, “This is so much fun!!”  It makes us so ecstatic to be a part of the happiest time in people’s lives, and we can’t wait to capture the next chapter of Kristy and Kevin’s love story – their summer wedding!

Shelby & Kevin’s Family Engagement Shoot

We couldn’t help but smile as we saw Shelby, Kevin, and little Hudson heading towards us, hand in hand, at Lafayette Reservoir.  They were so excited for their engagement shoot, especially Hudson!

Mommy and Daddy laughed when they saw how much Hudson loved having his photo taken (and seeing the photo on the camera’s LCD screen afterwards).

“He’s definitely a natural!” they exclaimed.  We totally agree!  Since he seemed to love the camera so much, I even offered to let him take a photo of mommy and daddy.  I sat on the ground, and he quickly hopped into my lap to look through the camera.  He loved it!

It was so cute watching this adorable family.  They are so sweet, patient, and caring towards each other.  It makes us so happy!

Kristina & Jirayr’s Aladdin Inspired Engagement Shoot

ShootAnyAngle Photography, shootanyangle.comWe are huge fans of Disney (I don’t even want to think about how much money we’ve given Disneyland over the years!), so when we heard that Kristina and Jirayr wanted to incorporate some Aladdin inspiration to their engagement shoot at St. Vincent School for Boys in San Rafael, we were totally onboard!  Kristina emailed me a few days out from the shoot and said that though they knew it was a long shot, they were curious if we happened to have an “Aladdin’s lamp” that they could use in the shoot.  I have a few props that were Beauty and the Beast themed, but nothing Aladdin themed.  That’s when I walked in the other room to tell James.  He very casually replied, “Oh, I have one.”  Sure enough, we looked through some old boxes and found the perfect Aladdin’s lamp!

ASH_7476kristina.jirayr.2ASH_7347Since they live in Marin County, they suggested St. Vincents as a backdrop, and we are so glad that they did!  The site had so many beautiful spots, and the rain cleared earlier in the day to give us perfect conditions.

We are so thrilled for Kristina and Jirayr.  They were holding hands everywhere we went, and it’s clear that they love being together.  They are so happy to be tying the knot, and we can’t wait until the big day!  Congrats, you two!

Alicia & Aleks Rustic Winery Wedding

ShootAnyAngle Photography, shootanyangle.com

The couple loves a rustic winery look, so Picchetti Winery was a great spot for them.  They loved the old wood look of the buildings there, and we were also able to utilize the gorgeous trails nearby.  Due to the recent rain, everything was green and simply stunning!

It was very cute to watch Alicia and Aleks.  They couldn’t stop smiling!  We’re so happy for them, and we can’t wait until their big day!

Sheila & Chris’ Rainy Day Redwood Engagement Shoot

Sheila and Chris woke up to heavy rain the day of their engagement shoot, but even that couldn’t put a damper on the day!  The rain cleared just in time for the photoshoot, leaving behind puddles and rain droplets to make a sweet rainy day session.

These two can make each other laugh with just a word or even a look.  As photographers, we absolutely love when couples have that.  It makes each moment fun and an absolute joy to capture!

Janice & Cody’s Sweet Coastal Engagement Shoot

janice.cody1

It was quite a blustery day in San Francisco when Janice and Cody arrived at the Land’s End Lookout to meet us.  The beautiful view had attracted a lot of tourists, all bundled up tight against the wind chill.  That didn’t stop Janice from shedding her jacket to reveal a sweet pink floral dress that flowed so beautifully it took our breath away with every shot!

ASH_3682_1janice.cody5ASH_3627janice.cody4

Even the cold couldn’t put a damper on the love these two share.  Their love was evident in every shared glance, in how Cody would wrap his arms around Janice to keep her warm, in how Janice couldn’t help but smile just being near him.  It was so sweet to watch, and it made for some fantastic moments to capture.

We cannot wait to see these two on their wedding day.  They are so sweet together, and their love story is just beginning!
