christine and emjay they met in chicago, enduring 12 long, cold winters before moving out to (not-so) sunny san francisco, which they are loving. they never had engagement photos taken when they were actually engaged, so seven years of marriage and three kids later, they wanted to do an “engagement session.” in christine’s words: “a photo session that didn’t involve getting kids to cooperate and just be for the 2 of us would be a great treat!”
these two wanted a location that reflected their love of san francisco, but wasn’t super cheesy and cliche. we ended up starting out at fort point, pranced around crissy field for a bit, and then ended up with some shots with the golden gate bridge in the background anyway (avoiding cliche fail. but you can’t go wrong with the bridge since it’s so pretty!!). of course, it was super windy and cold and foggy AGAIN on the afternoon of their shoot – that screams san francisco, eh? and once again, i kept on whining about how freezing i was as i was bundled up in a coat, but not a peep from them. my clients are all total troopers so i think i need to suck it up and stop whining every time i’m shooting in freezing weather (which seems to be ALL THE TIME lately. hmph)! but seriously, though. I THOUGHT IT WAS SUMMER?!
anyhow. christine and emjay were totally sweet and you could see that their love and adoration for each other was as strong as ever after seven years. AWWWWWW. i love seeing couples in love! they warm my heart and make me so happy 🙂 what a great thing to be able to capture!
a bunch of faves!
