A San Francisco Adventure // Ashley & Igor's Engagement Session

This was the BEST DAY. Our sweet couple was so fun to hang out with! It really was our ideal engagement shoot & we were giddy the whole day. We started off with a more intimate home session to help Igor & Ashley get comfortable & relaxed. Their home was so so cute, filled with adorable details & creative nooks. Afterwards, we explored some of their favorite outdoor places together while getting to hang out, get to know each other better & hear more about their relationship & their wedding vision. It was a beautiful day in the city, with the golden, fogginess providing us with beautiful light all day long. You will also see some GORGEOUS bouquets featured in this shoot, created by 2 of my talented florist friends Angels Petals & Sarah's Garden Design. Thank you so much, ladies! Absolutely stunning creations & love working with you both!

Congratulations, Igor & Ashley! We love you guys & love being a part of this special season in your lives! We can't wait for your wedding next August! 

A Magical Backyard Novato Wedding // Roland & Elizabeth

Roland & Elizabeth....just their names sound so romantic & poetic together, am I right?! We met Roland & Liz at another wedding actually (thanks Taylor & Jenn!) & we instantly bonded on the dance floor. They are currently living in Denver, but Liz's dream was always to get married at her Grandma's Novato property which held so many special memories for her & her family. We knew it would be beautiful from Liz's descriptions of the property, but nothing could have prepared us for how truly magical it was when we walked up. You could tell it was truly such a labor of love & that countless hours had been poured into every square foot preparing it for that day. The gorgeous details, florals & tablescapes definitely made the day a beautiful one to capture, but what we loved most was how every person there felt like family, and Roland & Liz truly wanted everyone to feel special & loved. Not to mention the bridal party was SO FUN. One of those weddings where on the drive home, you friend request a few bridesmaids...#notashamed.

Roland & Liz, thank you for allowing us to be a part of your wedding day! We loved every minute of the day & thank you for being such a sweet, caring and trusting Bride & Groom. Congratulations on 2 months of marriage, Shaw's! Love you guys!
