Jenny and Andrew : Engagement

Photography

They both packed their bags, tucked away their passports, and boarded a plane headed to Rome, Italy. She left California, and he left Virginia, only to meet one night surrounded by a throng of other American students. Jenny and Andrew swapped numbers to their new Italian cell phones, then parted ways.

It wasn’t long before they were walking the past the Spanish Steps together, throwing coins—while standing backward—in Trevi Fountain, and sipping on lattes in small Italian cafes…falling in love with the city and each other. At the end of the semester, they both packed their bags, tucked away their passports, and boarded a plane. One headed to California, one headed to Virginia. They promised to call and write…and make things work. And much like the Italian lattes they sipped together on cold nights, their love remained warm and soothing to the soul.

A few years later, Jenny and Andrew walked briskly through the roaming streets of San Francisco. The trolleys, the fog, the perennially occupied taxis…it’s home. It’s the city where their love has primed, and the place that marked their undying dedication to each other. Andrew proposed to Jenny in the city, so there was no better place to have their engagement photos captured.

I met Jenny and Andrew for the first time for their engagement session…and while it perhaps could have taken a while to get to know each other, it totally didn’t. We immediately feel in step with each other, laughing along the chilly streets together. They were absolutely amazing! Jenny and Andrew chose specific locations for their shoot and had the afternoon mapped out perfectly…and it was SO much fun! They have a beautiful wedding planned at the Westin Pasadena and with the help of uber fabulous Angel Swanson—wedding coordinator extraordinaire—their day should be stunning.

Jenny and Andrew, I can’t wait to see you again and capture your special day. I hope I captured your home for all the beauty it truly possesses. Much Love and Appreciation…J*

Andrew has a killer view of the city, so we decided to hang out for a bit and soak in the beauty…

The thing I love most about San Francisco is that every wall, every corner is a photograph begging to be taken…

We then headed over to Caffe Roma…well, because, it’s a little piece of their Italian love right in their backyard…

On the go again, Jenny and Andrew got their drinks to-go and we darted off to do a little more exploring…

A little action in China Town…

At the end of our shoot, we swung by Hotel Triton and shot in its uber cool lobby…
