Molly & Patrick | Engagement at Muir Beach Overlook
As I was going through my sessions from 2014, I realized I shared Molly & Patrick's lovely wedding at Stable Cafe not too long ago, but I never shared their engagement session! I can't believe it slipped my mind because it was one of my favorites of last spring. We kept it fairly simple and stayed at one location - Muir Beach Overlook in Marin. We started off exploring the surrounding wooded areas and the overlook itself, before settling in for a little picnic at sunset. The two warned me ahead of time that they weren't very comfortable in front of the camera (though you'd never guess it from their photos!) so Molly packed their favorite cheeses, nuts, and some champagne for the picnic. It made the session feel even more relaxed for them because it gave them the chance to do something they'd normally do anyway, whether or not there was a camera nearby. I love how easy and natural the photos turned out and how they show a little glimpse into what they're really like as a couple. We lucked out with a clear, fog-free evening, too, and were able to catch the most beautiful sunset before calling it a day.
PS - Since it's Valentine's week, I have a few more engagement sessions and weddings lined up to share with you! Nothing too shmoopy, of course. Just real, genuine, you're-my-favorite-person-ever love. :)
