CH Wedding: 5 Steps to Prep for Your Engagement Shoot

You have an engagement shoot booked and you’re feeling ahead of the game, but what next?  As Kevin and I were gleefully preparing for our engagement shoot we realized we started having more questions than answers.  Where do we shoot?  How many locations should we shoot at?  Should we attempt an outfit change?  Where will we change?  OMG will people see us?   The last two were most likely me- and if you’re a classic over-thinker like myself, you understand.  Luckily, our wedding photographer, Jasmine Lee, (who is also shooting our wedding) is well versed in prepping couples and guided us through the entire process leading up to our shoot. read more

Color me Orange

Hi friends!  After a month of rain, we have been totally blessed with a HOT streak in the city.  I’m all over any chance to wear shorts since it’s a pretty rare occasion here in San Francisco.  It’s been such a busy time of year with work and wedding planning and have found myself indoors behind a computer more than usual.  I was so excited to get out and soak up this February sun!  I haven’t taken these shorts out since our Italy trip and felt they were due for a good wear around the city (secretly hoping they might also bring back my Italy tan). read more
