Sutro Baths & Lands End Engagement | Madeline & Ryan Engaged

Wednesday, October 12, 2016

Madeline and Ryan were an absolute TREAT to have here in San Francisco for their destination engagement session! Madeline wanted to surprise Ryan with a trip to San Francisco for his birthday (SO sweet) and knew that it would be the most perfect time for their engagement photos. She couldn't keep the secret for too long and before we knew it, they were here and we were running around in the El Nino rains at Sutro Baths & Lands End.  When we talked about a rain plan, they both decided to just go with the flow and enjoy the rare rainy day! I absolutely adored their carefree spirit! 

It's a wonderful feeling when two incredibly connected souls get in front of my camera. These two have been together for a few years and before they were a couple, were dear friends. You could feel the love and connection that emanated from them just in the 2 hours that we were together. Ryan knew how to perfectly wrap Madeline up so that their bodies fit perfectly; how Madeline continued to check on Ryan to make sure he wasn't too cold or tired; at the end of our session, we were all cold, wet and tired, but Ryan looked at Madeline and asked "Do you want to put your toes in the Pacific?" Madeline beamed and I knew it would be a cute little series. They compliment each other beautifully and I was so honored that they chose ME (from Instagram, no less) to photograph this one incredible day on their amazing journey together. 

Madeline & Ryan, I hope wedding planning is going smoothly and you two are savoring this unique time in your journey! I always say, take some time to call each other "fiancé" for a bit. ;)


  1. Love these! Really nice sharp colors in front of the cloudy backdrop.
