love is love engagement session – san jose photographer

a golden hour engagement session at the barn in san jose, what could make this session even more awesome? well it’s for my little sister, that’s what makes this session unbelievable sweet and amazing! that’s right, my baby sister is getting married! she met an incredible, smart and beautiful woman by chance (if you ever can, you should ask her how they met. and laugh over the best dollar ever spent giggle) and it’s going to be such an amazing and beautiful wedding. i can’t wait for the big day (and no, i will not be bringing my camera as i get the honor of being maid of honor, wooooo).

they got engaged back in may while on vacation in hawaii but wanted to wait until the calm of all the summer weddings before they made their announcement official. and in non-traditional fashion, my sister proposed with a toe ring which we still giggle about but it is perfect.


and now to show off some of their images from their magical evening! 🙂



this is the photo where i’m really glad that i am on maternity leave. just as i clicked this image while standing on the step ladder, i lost balance, slipping off the step ladder and almost fell on top of them and strained my thigh muscle and my butt muscle. so it’s time to put the camera down for sessions after this, whooops!



normally the game of parachute is perfect for families with little ones but i couldn’t resist having them play a little bit of parachute followed by sweet sunset kisses. they were great sports on playing this game to amuse me 🙂


and since they were visiting from los angeles, we had the perfect excuse to head to psycho donuts to include in their session. which of course i needed to buy a few “extra” just in case we dropped any :) sanjosephotographer_samesexengagement


thanks you for being so fun, beautiful, naturals in front of the camera and of course, willing to do anything that i asked you too! we are all so excited and can’t wait for the big day!

    so cute! I think the one of them laying in front of the barn on a blanket is my favorite – feels natural, like they’re just chillin and you happened to grab a shot. And, of course, the light!ReplyCancel
