If you live in “The City by the Bay,” you know that you should grab a warm jacket as you leave the house. Especially during the summer. I met Brooke and Josh for Golden Gate Bridge engagement photos in one of the windier bay locations. Fortunately, it was warm and sunny. Baker Beach was pretty much empty, and there was hardly any wind 🙂
For many years I credited Mark Twain with the phrase, “the coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco.” Apparently he never actually said this. Nevertheless, I still think it’s one of the best ways to sum up a stroll down Lombard Street in shorts, flip-flops, and a t-shirt during July. The fog can linger all day and the breeze coming off the Pacific Ocean can suck the toasty right out of your roasty.
As a matter of fact, I met Brooke and Josh several years ago at Brooke’s mom’s wedding in Tahoe. Which means this will be the first time I photograph a mother and her daughter’s wedding! Brooke and Josh booked a Lake Tahoe wedding at The Resort at Squaw Creek. However, they wanted pre-wedding photos closer to home.
