This was one of our favorite engagement shoots. Living in the Bay area, Danielle and Danny had so many great spots to choose from for their Engagement Shoot. Ultimately, Half Moon Bay was the winner since it was a different backdrop than the overdone Golden Gate photos from their city. It was a treat for all four of us since none of us had been there! The area is known for his dramatic cliffs and gorgeous shoreline, but we opted to shoot around the town before heading to the water for sunset to get some variety. We found a great clearing, some woods and a haystack! Danielle chose a white dress which had a beautiful, yet light, bridal feel. Danny sported a plaid button down and jeans which worked so well together. They brought silly shirts of each other they had made for Coachella – they were perfect for the haystack shots since we were able to also cheat them as just casual matching tops. Light colors followed down by the bay which were perfect against the gorgeous sunset.
The best part of these photos is the relationship between Danny and Danielle, they had fun with each other and weren’t afraid to goof around in front of the camera. We are so thrilled with how they turned out and can’t wait to shoot their wedding in May!
A couple shots on film, as usual. Love the grain and color!
