Photographing your moments in San Francisco, California







One of my favorite things to photograph? Engagement sessions. Hands down. And if you’re wondering, how do I find the perfect spot for engagement sessions? Well, with five years of experience as an engagement and wedding photographer, here’s my biggest tip to find the perfect spot for your engagement session. Let’s dive in! 

I believe that your engagement session is not just a prelude to the big day, but an opportunity to capture the essence of your love story. My favorite part of this job is being invited in and witnessing the narratives of couples who trust me to document your story, true to who you are. 

First things first, I’m all about getting to know you. I send out a questionnaire that covers an array of questions from who you are, to your story, and any sentimental parts of your relationship.

The questionnaire is more than just a formality. I ask if there’s anything sentimental about your relationship that you’d like to incorporate into your session. Do you have trinkets with a story or meaningful items you’d love photographed? Bring them along! Whether it’s a cherished family heirloom or a symbol of your shared adventures, these elements add a layer of intimacy to your photos, making them uniquely yours. If you don’t, I ask if there is a specific spot in Colorado (or wherever the engagement sessions is) that holds a special place in the relationship for you.

It’s during this process that couples unveil unexpected stories. Perhaps you reminisce about those early dating days spent strolling through Boulder or the cozy afternoons at a downtown Denver brewery. These personal anecdotes often help to shape the planning process, and also adds an extra layer of authenticity to your story! 

If you don’t have any sentimental ties to a location or a specific place in mind, no worries! Many couples travel from out of town because they simply want awesome CO mountain views – and well, I’ve got you covered! I’ve scouted various locations depending on the season and your hiking preferences. Whether you’re up for an adventurous trek, a serene mountainside, or a vibrant cityscape, we can find the perfect backdrop that aligns with your vision.

Engagement sessions are about more than just beautiful images; they’re about creating an experience that reflects your love. In essence, my goal is simple – to document your love story in a way that feels true, authentic, and entirely yours. 

If you’re considering an engagement session, and need guidance on location options, don’t hesitate to reach out. Let’s discuss what resonates with you and your partner, and together we’ll find that perfect spot that feels like it was made just for you!
