sunday reading link list on twentieth street


Even though wedding season is technically over - no more weddings to shoot until 2015! - there's still tons of editing, family sessions, and engagement sessions on the calendar.  It's going to be a busy couple of weeks before the holidays but, hey, at least I have the kind of job that doesn't really feel like work. :)

Did you do anything exciting this weekend?  Please let me live vicariously through you...

This road trip through Montana makes me want to pack up our camping gear and hit the road, too.

Hold on, you wanna make my what smell like peaches??  Get over yourself, tech guys.

Millions of ladybugs converging in the Oakland redwoods?  Time for a hike!

I've been reading a lot of not-good stuff about Uber lately and it's giving me second thoughts about using the service.  What do you think?

Some gluten-free baking mistakes to avoid this holiday season.

Speaking of gluten-free, I need these cheesy breadsticks in my life asap.

I don't know if I could keep my cool the way this mom did if someone ever said something like this to me...

Andrea & Matt | Engagement in Alamo Square

11.21.2014

Andrea and Matt chose to do their engagement session in Alamo Square because it was the neighborhood where they first made a home together, a place that holds sweet memories of good times and falling in love.  But it also just so happens to be one of the more popular San Francisco spots, thanks to my favorite childhood show, Full House.  We didn't want their session to be all about Alamo Square Park, though - it may be the backdrop for their love story but it's definitely not the main character.  So we intentionally avoided the famed Painted Ladies and instead sought out other gorgeous nearby buildings and sweet little corners of the park to set the scene for their romantic evening.

Their sweet rescue pup Nova joined us for a few family photos in the beginning before heading off for one-on-one time with Uncle Paul (Andrea's brother).  Then after roaming the park just the three of us, we headed out for a neighborhood adventure and found beautiful Victorian buildings, a cool vintage car, gorgeous pink walls that just so happened to look like perfection with Andrea's outfit, and a lovely blue stoop for a little snuggle time before wrapping up the evening.  Even though we spent a few hours in one of the most recognizable areas of San Francisco, we made sure the iconic backdrop didn't detract from what was most important - Andrea & Matt and their love for each other. ♥
