James & Roxana’s Spirited Golden Gate Park Engagement Session

golden-gate-park-engagement01James proposed to Roxana during a romantic trip to San Francisco. Rather than have their engagement session where they live in Southern California, they decided to revisit the site of that life-changing day.

On the summer solstice, we met up with our nature-loving couple at Stow Lake in Golden Gate Park. The day couldn’t have been more gorgeous. Squirrels scampered about, begging for handouts. Bluejays chased each other through the trees. Ducks and geese splashed around contentedly. One gopher even popped up and had a snack right in front of Roxana and James!

The lovely Thistle & Bone flower crown that Roxana wore fit the vibe perfectly. Laughing practically the entire time, they strolled hand in hand around the park, stopping on occasion to snuggle, blow bubbles, admire waterfalls, and climb trees. Oh! And paddle a boat around the lake! Since we pretty much ran around the entire length of the lake to keep up with them, we were drenched in sweat by the time they returned to the dock, but it was absolutely worth it. Here’s a glimpse of the fun we had together. golden-gate-park-engagement02
