after a month or two of consistently foggy/cold shoots, the sun finally came out for this one! mother nature must have been smiling upon allysa and ronnie, and i knew i was going to be in for a super good time. i mean, the sun was shining upon us, right? what could be better?
turns out i was right. and it did get better – allysa and ronnie are super adorable and totally fabulous. not to mention, allysa is gorgeous and ronnie is a total stud. they are also completely in love, and i kinda melted when i saw the way they looked at each other. these two also knew how to work it, and the camera just looooooved them (seriously. they look like models in some of these shots!). add in some fun lighting (sun = i finally got to play with some sun flares! woo!) and you have some magic. i also loved the fact that allysa and ronnie were wanting to be different than everyone else, and wanting to move away from the norm – no cheesy or typical engagement photos here, thankyouverymuch. they also wanted an urban setting for their session – and we ended up at south beach/misson bay and treasure island, which allysa actually suggested. i always end up suggesting treasure island to people but no one bites, so i was THRILLED when she asked if we could shoot there! seriously, i could not asked for more during this session (now that i’ve said that, i’m sure i’m going to get another long streak of foggy sessions again, aren’t i? pffft)!
allysa and ronnie originally wanted to get married in new york. in fact, they were considering getting married at shake shack, which you might have heard me raving about after my day in NYC. seriously, they have super delicious burgers and cones. yummmm. i think that would’ve made an awesome wedding – i might have had to weasel an invite out of them for that one 😉 they decided to get married in the bay area though, so that more of their family and friends could join them.
anyways. i had waaaaaaaaay too much trouble narrowing down my favorites from this one, so be prepared for a LONG post!
i lurrrrrrrrve this one:
i was waaaaaay too excited about the sun. i think i said “OMG, I CAN’T BELIEVE THE SUN IS OUT!” way too many times.
by the time we left for treasure island, the fog was rolling in – FAST. allysa had originally wanted some photos on the island with the skyline in the background, but you couldn’t see it anymore! so we went on to the other parts of the island…
i think i almost fell through the floor while shooting these photos. literally. i’m actually surprised i didn’t, lol.
i looooove this purple (blue?) fire truck (trude pointed it out to me when we did our swap there)!
thanks, allysa and ronnie! good luck with the wedding planning!
