Kristen and Michael’s Oakland engagement photos were a total blast. These two are so much fun and super cute together; you can really tell they found their perfect match in each other!
We started in these stunning trees in one of my favorite parks in Oakland. The sunshine here gets me every time. Isn’t the light insane?!
I also really loved that they brought their sports attire for a few of the images at the beginning. I offer every couple I work with the chance for one or two outfits if they would like. This is always a fun way to switch things up and show some personality in your images! :)
These cute and cuddly shots are probably my favorites from the whole session. It’s hard to pick, but these really make me smile and their love and friendship really just shows through in these!
Fave! So cute, you two. So cute.
Keeping it simple for a few here. Love their smiles in the one on the left.
They changed, too! haha. Loved this outfit as well and glad we had both to add some variety to the session. The blue and green go so well together! :)
After a few more photos in the field, we headed to a nearby redwood grove. The afternoon light streaming through the magical forest made for some stunning light and some beautiful photographs. I am so excited with how these turned out! :)
Didn’t we capture the magical perfectly?! Love these two in this spot! Another of my favorite photos from the session, for sure.
And how about a close of up of that diamond ring! I love the simplicity and small details on this gorgeous rock.
Isn’t the band just so dang dreamy with these diamonds?!
After a bit more time in the redwood grove, he headed back to the fields for some images in the evening light. I love the soft look of these photos and the romance of these two together at dusk. Also, this location was rad!
Helloooo perfect! So cute and this spot makes me happy.
Kristen and Michael, thank you SO much for having me along to photograph your engagement photos in Oakland. I had so much fun hanging out with the two of you and I am so happy with the photos that we created together. I can’t wait to celebrate your wedding with you next October! :)
