Let’s see, we’ve got the Pacific Ocean, a sandy beach, the California mountains, a chaparral-covered hillside, and a couple spraying two bottles of champagne, all captured in the same picture. Sounds like a winner of an image for a save-the-date card.
It was all Kaylin and Greg’s idea, and I was thrilled to be able to execute it as they described.
The image was meant to set the tone for their 2015 wedding at Olympia’s Valley Estate, which makes me all the more excited to shoot it.
Champagne spraying wasn’t our only scenario during Kaylin & Greg’s Marin Headlands engagement session. We started at the Wood Line sculpture in the Presidio, the crossed the Golden Gate and headed to the Battery Spencer bridge overlook, where I was astonished to find only a light wind (there’s normally a gale blowing across that scenic hilltop). We took advantage of the advantageous conditions, then headed deeper into the Marin Headleads.
We stopped at some other great overlooks, and they even did some Brinson-Banksing on top of an old military installation. We walked out toward the Point Bonita Lighthouse, then headed to Rodeo Beach to round things out.
It was a super fun day, and I’m excited to share my favorite photos from their Marin Headlands engagement session in the gallery below.
