This Stanford engagement session with Robin and Matt was our second shoot in the San Francisco area last weekend, and after having finished looking through the photos from both, I can now safely say that I want to move to California and take pictures there ALL THE TIME. What they say is true — the light really is insane and I also think that being in a new place really had both Seba and I feeling inspired.
Last weekend was all about ghosts of bridesmaids past — we met Robin and Matt at Erin and her Matt’s NYC wedding earlier this year. I love working with people we’ve met at past weddings, for one, because I already know we like each other — but in this particular case even more so, because I already know that Robin and Matt’s wedding is pretty much guaranteed to be a good time. I’ve seen how they and their friends and family get down
Not to mention, when Robin showed me her emerald engagement ring and told me about their non-proposal love story, I felt like she was speaking my language (says the girl with the sapphire wedding ring). It really makes me happy when couples aren’t afraid to have a wedding that may differ from the norm…but completely fits their personality. I won’t give away any of the details since they’re not mine to share, but let me say that September 17th, 2011, will be EPIC. I can’t wait!
The infamous California light in action. Dreamy.
I love the way Robin is looking at Matt in this photo. Beautiful, a little romantic, but fun and not sappy. I told you, she’s my kind of bride.
This one puts a smile on my face every time I look at it!
Obviously we had to take advantage of all the crazy cool arches everywhere. I thought a little off-camera lighting would add some good drama and it did. I LOVE how this next one came out!
Robin and Matt in front of The Tower! Iconic. Yeah, that’s me trying to pretend I actually knew it was iconic before last Sunday.
Gorgeousness. One of my favorites below. Shot by Seba, of course.
And then I can’t decide which ones are my actual favorites. I’m madly in love with the next two shots as a series. MADLY.
Buuuuut, I think this next one might take the cake. I absolutely ADORE every single thing about this entire photo. This ones getting blown up huge when we get back to Chile. Is it strange that I’m going to have a wall full of photos that I love of other people?
