2012 Faves | Engagements

In keeping with year-end wrap ups for 2012, I thought I'd share some of my fave engagement photos from the last year with you.  I love all these couples so much and am so honored they invited me to be a part of such a special time in their lives.

I truly believe that doing these sessions with my couples results in better photographs on their wedding day.  Each of my wedding photography packages (except for the elopement package) includes a complimentary engagement session.  I love the "e-sesh" because it gives us a chance to get to know each other before the wedding day and it gives my couples the opportunity to get comfortable with a camera following them around for a while!

Most of these engagement sessions took place in or around San Francisco, with the exception of one at UC Davis.  I've had such an amazing time exploring the sights of the Bay Area with my wonderful clients, and revisiting UC Davis brought back some special memories, too.  But in going through all my engagement photos from 2012, I realized I'm really drawn to lovely little kisses.  Such a sweet sign of affection between two people in love. ♥

  1. They're beautiful pictures and I'm glad you're sharing them on your blog. I'm just finding it (and that's obviously from a European perspective) rather odd to have an "engagement shoot" - I mean, isn't that what the wedding photos are for? I don't think it's something that's really done over here...

    Anyway, hope January looks better in SF than in London. Have a lovely week xo

  2. Aww I recently found out that two of my friends are getting married so I eagerly await their engagement photos!! =)

  6. OMG. These are all SO insanely beautiful. Wow. Thanks for sharing. xo

  7. Great way to look back on the year!

    Your photos are simply gorgeous. The first one and the one with the dark gray doors and white brick are stunning!

  8. So beautiful! We had an engagement shoot recently and it was the best fun (it's posted on my blog if you'd like to take a peek). I thought it might have awkward doing the kisses and gazing at each other, especially when about 50 people turned up on the same cliff top as us, but it was actually really nice to show some affection in public, kind of felt like we were really shouting about how in love we are. Thank you for sharing, that last one is perfection! xxx

  9. Love love love the engagement pics... people are so happy! I love my engagement photos almost better than my wedding photos - tee hee hee! XOXO
