Sinath + Vince’s Rooftop Picnic Engagement Session

engagement session this love of yours san francisco rooftop picnic flowers photo shootDIY It was a gorgeous afternoon in downtown San Francisco when we met up with Sinath + Vince. For their engagement session, the couple opted for a really romantic and classy picnic. Vince works at The Gap headquarters and for their session they were especially eager to use the beautiful green rooftop atop the headquarters.  Sinath, being super creative and equally as talented, hand crafted these super gorgeous crepe flowers and paper hearts. All the effort they put in plus the wonderful weather we had was the perfect recipe for these amazing photos… On top of that, they are one of the cutest, most fun couples we have had the pleasure of working with. We just placed them together and nothing but great things resulted. They have such uncontrollable chemistry- these two! It was a wonderful time together and Michael and I can’t wait to do it all over again for their wedding. ^.^

:San Francisco Wedding: Christine + Habib Chapter I

Day long rain, wind up to 37 mph- That was the non-budging forecast for days leading up to Christine + Habib’s wedding.   After religiously following the weather and hoping for at least slightly less than torrential winds, we were all resigned to an exclusively indoor affair. I especially felt for Christine, a Bay Area native who had just moved back from Chicago and wanted her wedding to epitomize the San Francisco cityscape. I really wouldn’t have even believed it if I had not personally witnessed it… However, somehow when we arrived to the Clift Hotel, the skies started to clear and the beautiful, wonderful sun made its appearance.  It continued to shine brightly all day!  Yay- couldn’t have happened to a lovelier couple! Needless to say, the rest of the day unfolded perfectly after that. It was such a gorgeous romantic event filled with beautiful light, warm company and plenty of gorgeous details.  Here is Chapter I of their lovely, chic Clift Hotel Wedding.   Congratulations, Christine + Habib! Much happiness to you two and little Norah in your new home.  Thank you so much for having Michael and I be a part of your special day!

These girls really knew how to keep things light and fun, breaking out in an impromptu pop culture trivia game.   It was a fun time for everyone,  Michael and I were both cracking up at the banter. Plum Pretty Sugar Kimono Robe Wedding Bridesmaids

I was so happy when I caught this one of Christine’s mom admiring her daughters dress.

Yes, Christine looked that amazing in her dress!  I was so smitten with her flowers. The color and details are simply divine.

That’s not a bridesmaid after all!  Mommy and Norah have sure a striking resemblance.
