It's a trifecta of fabulous, so it should be no surprise that their engagement session is as pretty as they come.

From Tess Pace Photography...The bride wanted an engagement session that was fashion-forward, represented their contemporary-urban style and showcased the beautiful city of San Francisco, while remaining unique. This shoot took place over two days so we had an opportunity to work in beautiful light and incorporate all of the gorgeous clothing options the bride and groom pulled together for this shoot. If I were to describe this session it would be, “glam in the city.” I absolutely ADORE this couple and cannot wait for their gorgeous Colorado wedding this summer at the Denver Art Museum with the ever-talented, Calluna Events.

Our first stop was Chinatown and the Jackson Square area. Here we took advantage of the colorful streets of Chinatown and some great urban alleyways. Nearby Jackson Square had a lot of red brick buildings and streets that we had fun with. Our second stop was the Embarcadero (near the Ferry Building). Here we captured the promenade walkways and the water in the background. Our final stop on day one was the bride & groom’s rooftop. Here we playing around with the gorgeous warm light from the setting sun… both the city and the Golden Gate bridge was visible from atop there, with nothing obstructing us from the sun. On day two, we hit our final location of Pacific Heights and the Lyon Street Steps. Here we captured the gorgeous architecture, some of the beautiful surrounding homes, and vibrant ivy walls.
