What a fun engagement shoot! James and Alastair really wanted their shoot to be candid and photojournalistic. And that is just my style. Doing the traditional San Francisco iconic backdrops was not what they were looking for. They wanted to have their engagement shoot be a time for them to warm up in front of the camera so they'd be ready for their wedding day photos. How better to keep things comfortable than to shoot at home. We had an amazing time in their kitchen as Alastair made one of his signature pies. On the menu for the day was blueberry. All the ingredients were laid out and the two got to making the most delicious pie I've had in a long time. James is pretty lucky to have such a great cook.
While the pie was in the oven we popped up to the roof for a few photos where you could see Twin Peaks in the background. Then down to the garden and out to front of the building for a few more photos and then some photos with the kitties Sharla and Onyx. It was a great afternoon with James and Alastair and I felt really lucky to be invited into their home to see a glimpse of their life and their love for each other. I'm really looking forward to their wedding day at Hotel Vitale and capturing more great moments.
