Foggy Muir Beach and The Pelican Inn Engagement Photo Session

Melissa and Sean met on the app Coffee Meets Bagel. On their first date they went to Bi-Rite Creamery and Tartine Bakery (if you live in the San Francisco Bay Area, you know what that means!). Naturally, she thought they were a good fit when he knew when the fresh bread comes out at the bakery.

I just love that story! That’s why I always have a video call with my potential clients when they inquire; so we can talk about those little details in your relationship and I can see how you interact together so I can help bring that out in your photos! Of course, you’ll get to know me as well and can feel free to ask me anything! 😉

Melissa and Sean chose to have their engagement photos at Muir Beach, just north of San Francisco. This location has a special meaning for me as well because I used to go there all the time with friends for hiking and bonfires on the beach! I love stopping at The Pelican Inn nearby for a meal after a long hike, so it was really fun for me to check out the area again in a different way! We started their session at The Pelican Inn, and then walked along the path to the beach where we were greeted with a classic foggy and chilly evening. But that gave them even more reason to snuggle up together and have fun running on the beach! I love the final photos we took with them standing on the large rocks by the water!

behind the blog

My goal with every client is to cultivate a fun, creative, and approachable vibe. All types of people, all types of bodies, and all types of love are welcome here.

Color and creativity fuel my soul, and whimsical details make my heart happy! I believe in finding joy in the everyday, that real emotions are better than perfectly posed, and that building real connections with my clients is what allows me to create honest photos and capture genuine moments.
