San Francisco Bay Area Engagement & Wedding Photographers
An engagement session is a wonderful way to get comfortable in front of professional cameras before your wedding day. We know first-hand how awkward being photographed can feel, so we're all about making it fun for you. Our goal is to capture your unique personalities and relationship, and the best way to do so is to help you relax and be your best selves. At the end of it all, you'll receive photos (of yourselves together! that aren't selfies!) that mark this special time in your lives and hopefully also feel more at ease about your wedding day.
Engagement photos don't have to look any certain way. If you'd like to revisit the site of your first date and follow it up with a waterfront stroll, let us know. If you'd like recommendations for a magical forest to frolic in, we know of some. Can't handle being smoochy in public? No problem! Want your dog or cat to be a part of the action? Yes, please! Want to incorporate light sabers in your session? Bring them! We're open to whatever ideas you may have and, if you're not sure what you want, we can help you figure it out. In fact, if you'd like, we can use this opportunity to create cinematic stills from an imaginary movie starring you (like we did for Stephanie & Matt's Disneyland engagement session)!
All of our wedding collections include a complimentary two-hour session but, if for some reason we can't photograph your wedding, we're available for standalone sessions, which start at $500.
Your session includes a private online image gallery from which you can download edited, web-ready photos for social media and your wedding website. You can also order prints, save-the-date and holiday cards, and wall art. Our photobooks make fabulous guestbooks for signing and also gifts you and your loved ones will treasure.
If you love to travel and would like to do your engagement session outside of Berkeley, Oakland, San Francisco, or the greater Bay Area (like Diana & Andrew, who joined us in Osaka and Kyoto), contact us about our travel schedule. Who knows? Ours might overlap with yours, which means no travel fee! But even if our schedules don't already overlap, let's chat. If we're available, we'd love to join you on your adventure!
