Rachel + Ali {san jose engagement session}

On Saturday I had the pleasure of photographing an engagement session for the delightful Rachel of Decent Urban Weddings. Rachel and Ali live in Boston but are getting married in San Francisco and were in the area to celebrate their engagement. First, let me say that I was already a fan of Rachel and was thrilled that she contacted me. Second, let me say that photographing another photographer is not without a few moments of nervousness! But as soon as I met Rachel and Ali I knew we were going to have a great time. They were up for anything and had some great ideas as well as one special request - they are getting married on Leap Day and wanted jumping & leaping photos. Rachel of course knew that those can be tricky but we got some fun shots!

These gloves were on the next bench so Rachel grabbed them and gave Ali her best right hook.

They also braved the fountains in their party clothes.

Rachel's green dress looked amazing against these red walls.

We ended the day at their engagement party which was full of food, music and family. Thanks, Rachel and Ali!
