Let me just say that I already L-O-V-E my San Francisco/Bay Area brides.  I wasn’t sure how long it would take me to build up a client base here in SF but I have been SO blessed with some incredible couples.  Not only are they super fun & sweet but they are gorgeous!  OK… on to Jena & Brian….

These two are serious SF Giants baseball fans.  And when I mean serious they…… 1.bought custom jerseys for the shoot   2. Are having custom made “baseball tickets” as their save the dates   3. Potentially having a Giants Stadium as their grooms cake (which would be incredible)!  So it was only fitting to do part of the e-shoot at the one and only Giants baseball stadium.  I am SO thankful for a man on our church leadership team who made it possible to even go inside the stadium.  I’m pretty sure very few people get to do this. On with the photos…

They are going to be Mr. & Mrs. Larsen and their wedding day is 09.03.11 (Seriously???? Does it get any cuter??)

Sweet Jena..
Love this one!
Brian loving on his future bride. 
A quick change and an oh-so-cute picture!

Jena is totally pulling off the hot pink lipstick!

I mean really??…. this is just so sweet! Definitely a favorite.

Matching hot pink lipstick, shoes, & belt!  So fashionable.

And this one… mmmm… no words!
Catching some fun light!
They both laughed the whole time.  Here is one instance….
Loving those shoes!
Framer!  Precious. 
OH.MY.GOODNESS…..I keep trying to think of new creative things to say with each picture but I love them ALL!
I love the looks of the historic trolley car tracks on Hyde street.  
I posted this one earlier… but totally worth a second look. 
I’m sure those people on the trolley car thought we were nuts to be walking in the middle of the trolley cars path.
Last change of clothes and one of my all time favorite relaxed engagement photos….
Loving that ring!
I just adore engagement shoots!
Sweet Sweet Sweet.
I am now totally pumped for their wedding in September.  Were they not precious?  Feel free to leave me some comment love!!!
