Thunder and lightning struck on this crazy San Francisco summer day - it couldn’t have been more fateful as the day J chose to propose to his girlfriend. Though rain can sometimes spell worry for couples, it made for one of the most romantic proposals I had ever witnessed. It had just started pouring rain, but with a little persuasion, he led her to the spot where they had been to many times to have many long talks. Rain and tears mixed together for the sweetest “I do” followed by their families popping out from their hiding spot to celebrate with them. You don’t always need an epic landscape for special moments like these, sometimes it’s just all about the heart!
Six months later later, we escaped the rain and captured a beautiful engagement session at Montalvo Arts Center! I had been eying this place for a while - this 1912 Mediterranean style villa hidden in the Saratoga hills was the perfect backdrop to get them excited about their fall wedding in Napa. Check out their proposal and engagement sessions below!
