California Engagement Photography, Engagement Photography

Kim and Trent | San Francisco Muir Beach Engagement Photography

These two are no strangers to our blog. While in California, we took photos with them several different times. We wanted to work with them for a styled session but figured why not get to know them a bit before the collaboration AND take advantage of some of the beautiful locations Northern California has to offer.

Shooting at Muir Beach

One of these amazing locations was San Francisco's Muir Beach. And I think you'll agree that it's was pretty magical!

Have you ever happened upon a place in nature that was so beautiful that it left you speechless? Muir beach did just that. I loved the ruggedness of the rocky outcroppings, the way the sun clung to the mist and created this dewy haze, and, of course this beautiful couple.

A Perfect Chance to Shoot film

Since we're still working film into our workflow, this session gave us the perfect opportunity to do some practice. In true fine art photography fashion, Stephen went crazy shooting film and I tried to not get distracted by the beauty of these two and the waves crashing at their feet and actually remember to press my shutter button.

This session totally sold us on shooting film! From softness of the natural grain to the warmth of the skin tones, there's something about film that makes us do a little happy dance on the inside... and sometimes on the outside too

Kim and Trent-thank you for allowing us to photograph you and to do a little learning in the meantime. Your love is radiant, vibrant, and focused.  Thank you for sharing that with us!
