When we help our couples choose the best spot for their Engagement Session we always suggest narrowing it down to two main choices: a nature setting vs. an urban area. If you’re more shy and want to stay away from the curious eyes of bystanders then a nature setting is ideal. Or, if you feel brave and happy to be in the spot light, an urban setting can be chosen. But in this case, be ready for possibly hundreds of eyes looking at you trying to figure out who those people are surrounded by paparazzi and if they know you from some hot new TV show. Whichever you choose, it’s important to us that you are able to relax during the session and wethe location should be chosen wisely to match your comfort level.
So what would be the ultimate engagement session setting for the uber-brave? It would be a place with thousands of people walking by, kids, music, stores, cars honking, and even sea lions barking. That’s right – it would be The Fisherman’s Wharf just a couple of days before Christmas. Michelle and Roman were awesome in front of the camera: they were very much enjoying each others company without paying any attention to the cameras or the crowds of onlookers. We had a great time with them exploring the area and the holiday spirit was truly in the air.
We first met Michelle when she was a bridesmaid in Natalya and Rob’s Sir Francis Drake wedding. We are very much looking forward to Michelle and Roman’s wedding at the gorgeous Ritz Carlton hotel in July. Hearing about all the fabulous details that Michelle is busy planning I just can’t wait for their big day!
