San Francisco Engagement Session by Ashley Batz + A Roundup
January 13, 2012
United States
An engagement session in San Francisco sounds right up our picture loving alley. The fog, the Pacific, the Golden Gate – it all makes for the dreamiest of backgrounds and is completely bringing to life the love between this awesome couple. And by awesome, we mean a dynamic pair that is ever so cute AND insanely fashionable. This could be in part because the lady half of this duo is none other than the founder of The Glitter Guide; one of our favorite morning reads. Taylor Sterling is her name and rocking fabulous outfits is her game. After you've scrolled through the lovely images by Ashley Batz and visited the gallery for the full spread, be sure to take a look at a round-up from Ms. Sterling of the perfect engagement shoot outfits. It's a big ol' whopping fashion bonus of glitzy glamy goodness.

From the Bride-to-be... Joey and I met back in 2007 and became instant friends! About a year later we started to realize our connection was deeper than just friendship and we wanted to be together--we have been ever since. We fell in love on a date in San Francisco and knew that it would be the perfect place for our engagement session. We chose Ashley Batz who also works for The Glitter Guide like I do. She really captured our love and our sense of humor! We can't wait for our wedding in August of next year at the Ainsley House garden in Campbell, CA!
