engagement | kristen+jack | lyon's steps, palace of fine arts, ferry building | san francisco, ca

I don't typically get to photograph engagement sessions in the midst of my busy wedding season, but Kristen and Jack were relocating to Boston to set up a life there before their wedding back here in April. (As a matter of fact, Kristen turned over her keys to her San Francisco apartment just hours before.) Kristen and Jack decided to illustrate their engagement session with some San Francisco landmarks as the backdrop.  Even though the Golden Gate Bridge decided to completely disappear, the San Francisco fog created a romantic atmosphere in the city for this adorable couple.  We headed up the infamous Lyon steps for some initial photos and then back down to the Palace of Fine arts.  And then trekked to the pier just north of the Ferry Building for some amazing twilight photos.  I just love these photos!  Kristen and Jack's chemistry coupled with the moody light of the bridge, cityscape, and pier as well as the rolling fog, was a perfect recipe for romance.  Kristen and Jack, I am so glad I got to spend my evening with you two. Everything came together so nicely to showcase your romance and happiness.  Enjoy! xoxo, Stacey P.S. After their session, they hopped on an airplane to Boston. And I thought I had a full day. :)
