Jennilee & Brett | San Francisco | Westcott | BART | Union Square | North Beach | Engagement Session

When we met Jennilee for the first time in Union Square, I think she was pretty nervous.  Well...I would be nervous too if I was about to get my picture taken for two hours straight.  After a few shots and Brett making us laugh with his funny antics, we all realized that this would be a fun and very refreshing (for us photographers) session.

We wanted to hit all the cool spots so we just kept on walking and walking.  We were even thinking about walking from North Beach to Union Square.  Brett and Jennilee were such good sports through it all and I think we managed to get some killer shots in.  I loved that they were always up for something creative and had great suggestions throughout the whole day.  I can't wait to shoot their wedding in May! 

 Falling in love.  Literally.


We always look for great lighting first.  And sometimes the source might not be what you expect.  These were taken at the Powell Bart Station from one of those blank advertisement walls.  Normally, you'd have to do these in a studio.



Real props to Jennilee and Brett for this one.  These frosted door were backlit by a Victoria's Secret store.  We asked them to do anything they could think of behind those doors.  I don't think anyone knew that there were photographers on the other side so they just looked like two crazy people doing strange things inside of Victoria's Secret.   You guys rock!




Fun shot in the middle of Union Square!




Love those eyes!


The cute couple.


We went behind an alley and found this.  I love the lighting in this one. 


I was cracking up so hard during this one.  Brett was acting like a sleezy guy ambling down to the pretty lady.

it's amazing how, time and time again, you can get your subjects to do the physically impossible.

"so jennilee, now let's try you standing one-footed on brett's thigh."

we feed our couples some meth and a concoction of things to give them super human powers. it really works!

to those of you who might not be aware, we really don't do what i just described above. but we do try to elicit those effects in natural ways.
