We shot Raquel & Tim's Tilden Park engagement session just a few weeks before their wedding and the giddiness and excitement of their impending nuptials colored the whole shoot. The two love hiking, being outdoors, and being with each other so Berkeley's beautiful hilly park just before sunset was the perfect setting for them. We started the session off with a steam train ride along one of the park's scenic ridges then hiked along the trails, stopping whenever pretty patches of light or can't-resist backdrops caught our attention. The natural beauty that surrounded us was enough to brighten anyone's day but these two mostly had eyes for each other. And I couldn't get them to stop smiling even if I wanted to.
