When thinking about your engagement photo session do the words dreamy, ethereal, or aesthetic come to mind? If so, we have the perfect inspiration for you. For this stunning San Francisco engagement session, we were literally above the clouds. Brett and Lauren wanted to escape the hustle and bustle of the city for a calm and peaceful session, and Mount Tamalpais was the ideal place. This album shows how much magic we can capture on a cloudy day during your sessions. In this blog, I’ll cover a bit about my photography style, this beautiful day chasing clouds with Brett + Lauren, and some of my favorite San Francisco engagement photo locations.
This San Francisco engagement session featured in Magnolia Rouge was truly like capturing a dream. Thankfully, we got more than we could have asked for with perfect golden light that faded into blues and purples and with the clouds staying at bay. We were also fortunate to be the only ones on the mountain; so not only did we feel on top of the world, we got to enjoy it in serenity – just us, the views (and the wind).
I love working with a couple to find a location for their special photos that not only embodies them as a couple but can provide them with a stress-free and fun session. There are lots of locations around California that are beautiful and have become extremely popular. I tend to avoid those busy spots for a number of reasons. The last thing we want to do during your session is be fighting for space, especially if it’s a location with a view! With so many people around, it can feel uncomfortable or pressured for couples which is exactly the environment I want to avoid for my sessions. The goal is to help you feel comfortable and relaxed so we can capture the real magic- your love!
The Bay Area is filled with endless photogenic locations for your San Francisco engagement session. Whether you’re looking for a downtown aesthetic, beachy vibes, or outdoor beauty, you’ll have no problem finding a stunning location. Here’s a few of my favorite spots that I’ve shot at or would love to book!
My style and approach when it comes to photography is candid storytelling. I am a natural light analog and digital photographer that seeks to capture light, texture, color and movement. I take the time to get to know my couples to truly understand the vision for their wedding day or special event. I’ve traveled all over the world capturing the love of my couples and their most intimate and special moments. Some of my favorite projects and clients have come to me with a specific vision and want to step outside of the box which I’m always down to explore!
“Megan was exceptional to work with during our engagement shoot, on our wedding day, and throughout the entire process. I was immediately drawn to Megan’s style when I first visited her website. Megan went above and beyond to ensure that her effortless style we were drawn to aligned with our own style and personality. I come across our engagement and wedding photos everyday, and am so glad we worked with Megan. The photos she took are truly one of our greatest treasures.” -Brett & Lauren
