Nate + Joy | Engaged | San Francisco

i met with nate + joy to shoot their engagement session in august (my last session before going into maternity hibernation). they wanted to definitely include their dog mowgli since he’s such a big part of who they are. we started off at the palace of fine arts where it was sunny then a short drive to baker beach where the fog rolled in. that’s san francisco for you!

i love how in love they are. they’ll be getting married later this year!

keri - Love the fact that you can see fog and still see the bridge! Good timing for you all. Nice pics, Jen!


wow… it’s the start of a new decade! last year turned out to be major since we had our little grace. i took time off at the end of the year to spend time with the baby but i’ll be getting back to blogging more – a rad wedding & a kick back engagement session coming soon!

here’s to a happy new year!

the last month has been a whirlwind learning this parenting stuff.
lots of diaper changing.
sleepy nights.
cuddling on the couch.
