Our itinerary read like their first date. A whirlwind tour of North Beach that hit some obscure locations in San Francisco, but for Marnie and Dave, we were visiting the locations where their love was conceived! In October Marlene and I will be traveling to Connecticut to document Marnie and Dave’s wedding, but first I packed the family up for a weekend trip to San Francisco and a little engagement session!
After a few phone conversations with Marnie and Dave, I knew the shoot in San Francisco was going to be different. Being a San Francisco native, Dave was not really interested in shooting in front of the Golden Gate Bridge, Pier 39 or "gasp"..Fisherman’s Wharf!! (don’t tell Dave, but my family enjoyed all those locations!) Instead, Dave knows the heart of the City and wanted to concentrate on the overlooked gems. I appreciated his perspective because my style tends to rely more on love than scenery. So from a candy shop to a café, to the roof of an awesome parking garage, I was lucky enough to spend an afternoon with two lovers, whom I now call friends, documenting such an incredible time in their lives!
