Grateful as we are in California to have rain and lots of it, after many years in drought, I was very fortunate to have planned this engagement session with Shana & Alan one sunny afternoon, during a glorious break from wet days. We went to the woods in the Oakland hills of Joaquin Miller Park. Honestly it was my first time really exploring but it wont be my last. I think this is a time when I can step back and let the pictures speak for themselves. You will clearly see that Shana & Alan have a sweet and deep connection. I felt honored to have the opportunity to meander through the woods with them one beautiful afternoon and be a part of it.
Also I am so excited to share their photos in a special slideshow with music! I know a slideshow sounds like the simplest thing in the world but this is a new thing for me and I want to know how people like it. Let me know what you think in the comments! I’ve watched it a few times already myself. I love reliving our afternoon together, I hope you will too. Keep scrolling for the photo highlights that follow the slideshow.
Can’t wait to photograph Shana & Alan’s wedding in September of this year!
