San Francisco Engagement Session - SF City Hall + Sutro Bath - Sarah + Yale

April 2nd, 2018 was a special day for Sarah and Yale!  It marks their  7 year anniversary from the day they started dating.   It's only fitting they choose today to also have their engagement photos taken.  From inside the prestigious San Francisco City hall to the rustic, yet romantic Sutro baths I hoped to capture the years of memories, along with the inspiration and hope of their future together.  

I suggested something formal and elegant to blend in with the iconic white marble architecture that the capitol building is known for.  Sarah's fashion sense really shines through with her selection of an ivory lace maxi dress, which I think really stands out against the columns and the arches.   

For contrast, I thought going with something more free-flowing and bold would stand out well with the light at Sutro baths, and give us an opportunity to use the natural winds coming off the ocean.  Sarah's red backless dress really made her pop against the scenery.  You can even see it brightly reflected in the water in some of these compositions.  

I hope you enjoy the photos.  As an added bonus, stay until the end to see a short video clip I created for their anniversary gift.
