Destination Wedding Themed Engagement Shoot / SF Bay Area Wedding Photographer

Liz & Ryan

I am finally getting around to sharing previous sessions, including this magical engagement shoot featuring my gorgeous friend, Liz and her now hubby Ryan! They tied the knot last year in beautiful Maui, so they wanted to put together a destination wedding-themed engagement shoot. When they first told me their idea, I was super pumped because it was such a fun and unique concept.

The first stop was on the Stanford University campus, which provided a beautiful backdrop with its arched entryways, which gave us that perfect natural diffused light (yes please!) They rented a few vintage suitcases, which were extremely adorable and really helped shape the theme of the destination themed shoot. I really want to pick up a vintage suitcase for myself also because they are so cute! Liz is seriously just a pro and knows how to werk the camera serving me all the looks. Ryan did such a great job as well looking extremely dapper and polished.

The second stop was at a private air strip in San Carlos (it is a secret location, shhhhhh)- and I have to say is… it was freaking AMAZING! We got to pose them with one of the vintage airplanes and made it seem like they were just about ready to fly off to their honeymoon. SO CUTE right?! We were hit with some real strong harsh sunlight, which I was a little nervous about at first, but it turned out really well and I am super happy with how the images turned out. I have to say, this spot was honestly one of the coolest places I’ve had the chance to shoot at.
