You KNOW that we’re always talking about having fun with your engagement shoots … well, THIS couple, absolutely positively did just that! And who else to capture ~ and probably initiate a lot of the fun, than the lovely Lauri Levenfeld!

Lauri is the creative and ever so amazing spirit at Zoom Photography. If you’ve been with Style Me Pretty for ANY length of time, you’ve seen her features. So when she sent us some of the shots from Jennifer and Matt’s San Francisco E*Shoot we wanted to share.

Here’s a bit of their story from Lauri …

Matt and Jennifer both attended the University of California at Santa Barbara and were introduced by mutual friends. Four months after they first met, they saw each other again at a party. Riding home that evening on their beach cruisers, Matt wanted to give her a kiss goodnight, but he paused a little too long. So, teetering on her bicycle she leaned over, gave him a kiss and pedaled away!


On December 5, 2008, after six years of dating, Matt proposed to Jennifer in the Marin headlands overlooking the San Francisco skyline. Close friends were waiting at Harry Denton’s Starlight Room with champagne to celebrate their engagement!

Jennifer and Matt will be married on October 17, 2009 at the Holman Ranch in Carmel Valley, California. The couple fell in love with the property’s Spanish Hacienda charm reminiscent of their time spent in Santa Barbara. They are looking forward to exchanging vows overlooking the stunning hills and autumn colored vineyards of the Carmel Valley.
