Kiira and James, San Francisco shoot.

Last weekend Carla and I were in San Francisco for an engagement shoot for Nicole and Matias. So I contacted my cousin James and asked if he and his wife Kiira would be up for a photo shoot on Sunday., which James reminded me it was Easter, (oops) but they were still up for the adventure.
We went to the a park where the "painted ladies" houses aka the Full House were. And YES I watched Full house but it wasn't one of my favs!!!

The "Painted ladies" AKA Full House. YES I watched the show but Airwolf was on air around the same time and trumped Full house, sorry! But it was still cool to see these houses.
San Fran city hall is beautiful. Its larger than our Capitol building.
There were these crazy looking trees in front of city hall. The noon time light was tough, which Carla quickly threw out a few pointers. I then began to realize why she always schedules e- shoots later in the day, noon time light sucks.
Next stop were these cools graffiti walls that James knew about. The graffiti was cool but usually where you find spray painted walls, its sometimes not the best of locations. It reminded me of scenes out of the Grand Theft Auto video game. Sketchy people walking all around, especially the guys standing a few feet away from us selling. And they weren't selling girl scout cookies!!! if ya know what I mean

Gotta have the sexy shoe shot
What I like about this location is that the San Francisco Giants baseball stadium is about 30 feet to the right of this shot.

We ended the day at the beach, which I must say was AWESOME!!!! There's something to be said about that west coast sun.

There are so many pictures from this location is was hard to pick my favs. The sunset was so beautiful and light was OMG!!!!! awesome.
James and Kiira it was awesome seeing you guys again. I had such an awesome time hanging out with you guys and seeing the family again. Talk to you soon!

Nicole and Matias, San Francisco Engagement Shoot

Last week Carla and I went to San Francisco to meet up with Nicole and Matias for their engagement shoot. I don't even know where to begin with this post. All I can say is that it was a blast from the beginning to end. Nicole and Matias were so much fun to hang out with and were so easy to photograph. I felt like I was hanging out with long time friends taking us on a tour of the city.

Apparent disregard for the rules!!

AHHH, a train is coming!! or was is going??

The golden gate bridge
The light in their home was awesome.

I really loved the light in California

I'm so pumped that their wedding is only a few weeks away. I know its gonna be a blast.

Tara and Mark, North Hampton, MA engagement shoot

I have a lot of posts to catch up on so I'm planning a machine gun style of blogging for the next few post.  

Tara and Mark's E-shoot in North Hampton MA.  They had this cool turtle in their apartment that was very curious about what was going on, so why not try a ring shot with him.
We walked through the city stopping at different places along the way.  A few of my favorite places were a walking path/dike and a corn field.

I really liked the super blue skies we had that day.

A random cool spiral staircase.
