Playful Kristy and Danny SF Engagement Photo Session

Kristy and Danny are childhood sweethearts since elementary. To relive those childhood memories, we shoot their engagement session in their school in San Francisco where it all begin. We enjoyed re-creating their fond memories of Danny asking her beeper number(wow! Who would think of that? Only Danny! *grin* ) to borrowing of pencils, exchanging cards games, hello kitty and transformer lunch boxes, sharing apples and playing in the school’s court. Then we continue shooting around Union Square and Embarcadero Area.
It was fun and playful 🙂

Rochelle and Tony – Engagement Session in Santa Cruz

Rochelle and Tony are our good friends. Both are lovers of adventures and nature. Hiking is one their favorite past times. For their engagement session, we hiked (for a few minutes but seemed like forever to Phoebe) to the woods/forest area in Villa Montalvo. We went to Santa Cruz Boardwalk hoping to take some shots on the theme park rides. We were excited but it was closed on a weekday 🙁 instead we stopped for hotdog and tasty garlic french fries (must try for the junk food lovers). Good thing about Santa Cruz is there’s always the beach and the popular Light House. The Natural Bridges in Santa Cruz never failed to please, we had beautiful photos during sunset. Thick clouds covered the sky, hiding the sunset colors. We took a break for pizza, recharged ourselves to match the high energy that our friends have. Then back to San Jose downtown for some night shots to finish the shoot.
You can watch their wedding video below.
