Engagement Session at Middle Harbor Shoreline Park

Engagement

You know it’s a good match when you’re grinning while editing engagement pictures and then you receive an email like this from the couple:

Hi Lindsay,
I just wanted to say what a great time Adam and I had taking our engagement photos. I don’t think he was super excited about it before, but he really enjoyed himself – how many of your clients throw gang signs, and run headlong into Canadian geese? 🙂 He told everyone about your “Dude, your game sucks” line. It may have been cold, windy and cloudy, but it was fun!

We can’t wait to see the pictures!
Thanks again,
Stephanie

That basically sums up my engagement session with Stephanie and Adam from this past weekend. It was a lot of fun and more importantly, I just really, really like them. Adam’s in a band and Stephanie’s no girlie girl and they’re both just down to earth. Their wedding is in Gilroy in October and I really can’t wait!

Here are some shots from our blustery session at Middle Harbor Shoreline Park in Oakland. Check them out!




True thugs. Fo real.


As for the reference’s to Adam’s game, here’s a before and after. His game was obviously lacking. How are you going to pick up a shorty like that? He just needed a little encouragement.

Just an awesome, awesome couple.

See you soon!

Love one another and you will be happy. It’s as simple and as difficult as that. ~Michael Leunig

New York Engagement Photographer | Prospect Park | Vanessa + Kenny
Vanessa and Kenny’s relationship goes waaaay back, like high school back.  And then it stops.  And then it starts again.  But before I get into that, let me set the scene: we got our schedules in sync to photograph their engagement session right around the corner from their home in Brooklyn not long before their wedding.  There were ideas swirling around about where we should go and what we should do but we decided to keep it simple and wander around Prospect Park. These two are fantastic together.  If there were any jitters of being in front of the camera, my lens certainly didn’t see them.  They felt like old friends who invited me f ...

Extended Engagement Session at Philadelphia Art Museum: Dan + Kathy
Dan and Kathy met while in med school at Drexel University. They hung out in groups but found themselves hanging out with each other all the time. They had their first date at a sushi restaurant where Dan shot edamame at some other diners. It was at Haru where he proposed to Kathy 3 years later (he had asked her parents’ permission while on a trip out to the west coast not long before).Dan will be moving to LA very soon to start his residency. Fingers are crossed that Kathy will be matched somewhere close by when she graduates next year. It was important to them that their engagement session be a Philadelphia engagement session as this w ...
