I love shooting engagement sessions, especially when the couple is up for anything! Weddings are usually pretty hectic and I often feel rushed in order to stick to a timeline. Engagement shoots, on the other hand, have so much more wiggle room and allow me much more creative freedom...which I love! Vickie and Jason were such great models and you could tell their chemistry and laughter on camera was nothing but natural. We walked all around downtown San Jose, choosing the coolest buildings and walls to use as our backdrop. From the classic columns of the Superior Court on First Street to the linear architecture of San Jose's City Hall, we got a good variety of spots to complete the shoot. I'd say we had our share of fun! I'm very excited to shoot their wedding in November!

As promised, here's the second round of engagement photos I shot with Kira and Steven. I had just as much fun, if not more, on this shoot as the last one. They are just so easy to photograph together and the second time around they knew exactly what to do! We traveled around downtown San Jose and visited various spots around town that stood out to them or had a special meaning. Both were graduates from San Jose State, so it was important we paid a visit to their alma mater! Other cool locations included city hall, the old US post office across from St. James Park and the awesome brick alley way near their first apartment together. This was one of my favorite shoots from 2013!
