We just love this San Francisco beach bonfire engagement session! Shooting on the beach is already one of our favorites and when you combine it with a cozy bonfire and some yummy sweet treats (chocolate s’mores), it just can’t get much better. To us, it sounds like the ideal way to spend a chilly summer night in San Francisco cozying up next to your favorite person. ^.^ Even though, it was freezing that day, we had the most amazing drool-worthy light and we had so much fun with Toni + Anthony warming up by the fire in between photos… oh, and have we mentioned before that we have to best clients ever?? Toni + Anthony surprised us with some incredible cupcakes that definitely made our stomachs happy and finished warming us up after the chilly shoot! Toni + Anthony thanks so much for having us be a part of your vision for a romantic, beach bonfire engagement shoot. We had an amazing time with you guys and can’t wait for you to tie the knot!We love couples who are carefree and are not afraid to have a little fun! Anthony is definitely not afraid of some fun. ^.^
After roasting marshmallows and making s’mores, the adorable couple spent some time hanging out in their blanket and enjoying the peaceful beach during sunset. Soo romantic. ^.^
When our couples choose locations that have a special meaning to them, the session already has so much going for it! But as you’ll see later sometimes a little spontaneity can go a long way too. In Eva + Victor’s case, we began at the Legion of Honor and then went to a Golden Gate Bridge lookout. This spot was special to them since Victor proposed to Eva looking out onto the gorgeous San Francisco skyline and Golden Gate Bridge. How romantic is that?? That day was a particularly gorgeous day, so there were many others who came to admire the incredible view, but Eva + Victor only saw each other. They are so amazingly cute and silly together! We finished the session by pulling into a small recreation area that led down to a secluded beach. At first we had no idea where we were going. It was a pretty steep hike down and so totally random, but the result was a definite pay off. Dark sand, stunning sunset, exotic cliffs and rock formations- such a perfect ending to our sunset beach engagement session… We are so lucky to have such awesome couples like Eva + Victor who are up for adventure and trust our artistic vision. It really was an unforgettable way to spend our Sunday. To read more about Eva + Victor, check out their Brooklyn engagement session that took place earlier this summer. Can’t wait for their wedding next year!
Can anyone spot our adorable couple? hehe
