Vanessa & Travis | SF Wedding Photographer

Nov 15, 2018

Vanessa and Travis made their way into my heart during their Gainesville engagement session at The Thomas Center. They have an incredible joy, passionate love for each other,  and this beautiful gift of drawing strangers right into friendship with them! And lets not forget how amazing Vanessa’s hair is! I still have a bit of hair envy!

These two lovely souls reside in San Francisco. While I was traveling in San Francisco for a client’s wedding day, I stayed in town long enough to meet up with them for an engagement session on their coast. After a LOT of coordination, and multiple location changes at the last minute we decided on a Muir Beach engagement session… well because LOOK at it!! Karl the fog even came through and added a bit of a moodier look to their session, which was actually good for them since it added a different look to their images than the ones we took while they were in Gainesville.

I invited my dear, talented friend Emily to tag along and shoot along with me since she now lives in San Francisco. While we have separate companies, it felt like one when we worked together. We photographed and directed together in a way that flowed so seamlessly. We even read each other’s mind multiple times. I seriously loved that we had the opportunity to shoot together!

After the shoot, Travis and Vanessa treated Emily and me to a dinner at this restaurant from a foodie’s list. We felt so loved as they treated the dinner as a celebration of their engagement session with US. They were celebrating the time that they got to spend with us. Do you see what I mean by they made their way into my heart? Cannot wait for their elopement next spring!
