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

Perhaps they can’t be trusted to write their own vows but Amanda and Matt are the kind of couple I want around all the time.  This isn’t about the pictures (though, yes, they’re both pretty damn hot) but just because they’re fun people and I feel that I could come up with some kind of tough mudder obstacle course to get them back for our engagement session.  (I kid, I kid.) I had a really great time sweating through the woods in Wissahickon Park near Valley Green Inn.  This was a special place for them – when they were both in law school at Villanova and living in Roxborough this is the place they’d come to take a break from the stress ...
