Signe + Trevor: Steampunk Love Shoot in New Jersey

Engagement

Love Shoot: just like an engagement session but for any couple at any phase of their relationship.  Maybe you want to get all dressed up in your wedding digs and do a trash the dress/rock the frock shoot since quality picture time for you two was short on your wedding day and that incredible gown deserves more than a day. Or perhaps you’re digging the idea of going out and having fun as an anniversary gift to each other. Or maybe you’re like this married couple and you’re simply awesome and have some incredible costumes you want to play with. Whatever the case may be, you deserve fantastic pictures of you two as a couple before, during, and after the wedding.

I know, I know… You’ve been dying to see these steampunk pics ever since I taunted you with one a few weeks ago. Well here you go! I give you Signe and Trevor’s steampunk Love Shoot! (Oh, in case you’re scratching your head about all this “steampunk” talk, check this out.)




Yeah, they’re total badasses.


The two of them are just incredible together. Trevor is geeky in the best possible way. Signe has a heart of gold. When they’re in each other’s company they bring out the best in one another. They’ve been across the country and the world together – meeting at college in Washington and teaching English in Japan for several years.



He makes her laugh and it’s magical.







As if they’re not cool enough, Signe and Trevor go out swing dancing in their spare time. They showed me a few of their moves.

Signe and Trevor, thank you so much for spending a lovely afternoon with me. I had a blast!

Engagement Session at Baker Beach
I spent Thursday evening with a really fabulous couple: Gillian & Blake. I've known Gillian for a little while now. She's also in the wedding industry and is an incredibly talented florist. She serves the entire bay area so I very strongly recommend you check out her stuff at www.gillianmarieevents.com. I wouldn't say it if I didn't mean it.So onto the shoot… We met at this great grove of trees in the Presidio. Traffic was particularly hairy so we got a late start but the pictures were fantastic nonetheless. I mean, can you really take a bad picture of a couple this cute? Gillian has this bright, easy smile that just lights up her ...

Engagement Session at Chrissy Field
This past weekend I had an engagement session with a great couple who made the drive from Union City to Chrissy Field for Golden Hour (what photographers refer to as the hour before sunset when everything gets a beautiful golden glow). They have been dating for 7 years (she's a very patient woman). Their first meeting story was great: he threatened to throw her over a balcony at a friend's party. What an introduction. You could say he literally swept her off her feet! (Okay, that was really bad.) It was beautiful out and we made the most of the clear skies to get the Golden Gate Bridge in a few pictures.She's short so I couldn't resist a ...
