One of my favorite spots for engagement sessions in San Francisco is the magnificent Ocean Beach. With the Great Highway running alongside the exquisite expanse of the Pacific Ocean, it is by far one of the most picturesque natural settings in all of San Francisco. Because of its strong current, the waves of Ocean Beach draw local and visiting surfers alike, including our groom, Travis and his fiance, Stacey. Travis is an avid surfer and since Ocean Beach is near their home it was a meaningful and beautiful choice for their engagement shoot. In addition to the awesome shots in the dune grasses, we were able to take advantage of having a Beach Patrol truck nearby and I took some sweet shots of the couple. I really enjoyed this working with this couple, and their love for each other and their beach came through beautifully in these images. Be sure to keep your eyes on the blog for their upcoming wedding photos!

Congratulations Stacey and Travis!

Something special happened on Ocean Beach the other day. I teamed up with a San Francisco artist, Andres Amador to capture his art on camera.  He was commissioned by Rik and Lou Ann to create one of his signature art pieces on the beach, to commemorate their love. The photos will be used for the wedding invitations, and are meant to be pieces of art to share with the couple’s friends. Andres and Ember led a team of the couple and their friends, to create a unique piece on the beach. Each person chose a flower, and created their own on the beach. This was not an easy project to orchestrate, since a sufficiently low tide around sunset only happens a few times a month, and summer days are often foggy on Ocean Beach. This combined with everyone’s schedules, its a marvel that we were able to pull this off. There was a caterer on site, serving up delicious food and peach champagne jello shots. The jello shot toast is an instant classic in my book. Looking forward to the wedding. Would like this for your engagement or proposal? Check out Andres Amador on the web.
