Stephanie & Matt’s Disneyland Engagement Adventure, or When Harry Potter Met Star Wars

Stephanie and Matt weren’t sure about doing an engagement session when they booked us for their Berkeley wedding later this year, but, when we told them that we’d be passing through their new home of Los Angeles, they decided to … Continue reading

Kristen & Bryan’s Magical Land’s End Engagement Session

KB22

What happens when two Harry Potter fans discover that they’re soulmates? Pure magic, of course!

We had the pleasure of witnessing some of Kristen and Bryan’s magic recently when we met up with them at Land’s End. Our session started with some quiet time on the lawn of the Legion of Honor, a lovely spot for soaking up some inspiration from J.K. Rowling herself (the Harry Potter tomes also did wonders in minimizing our couple’s height difference!). We then ventured into the woods at the edge of the world, where we discovered that Kristen and Bryan are seasoned frolickers.

As is typical of San Francisco, the temperatures dipped the moment the sun set, but our intrepid couple kept themselves warm with hugs, kisses, and cozy Gryffindor and Ravenclaw scarves. We had a ton of fun with them, and can’t wait for their New Year’s eve wedding!

Jill & Kevin’s Magical Book-Loving San Francisco Engagement Session

Jill & Kevin 01
What do you get when two huge Harry Potter fans fall in love? Pure magic, of course! The day JK Rowling announced that Hermione should’ve married Harry instead of Ron, we met up with Jill and Kevin on a tiny swathe of grass overlooking the city and the bay for their engagement session. They had professed their love of books and all things Harry, so we didn’t bat an eye when they showed up in their favorite HP garb (check out the scarves Jill knitted!) with several tomes from the series in tow. Before long, they whipped out their wands, sending sparks everywhere.

After they tired of flinging each other around, we ventured down to City Lights Booksellers, a historic shop opened by poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti and Peter D. Martin in 1953 and the hub of San Francisco’s legendary Beat movement. Luckily for us, it attracts as many tourists as it does actual shoppers, so we were right at home with our cameras, capturing Jill and Kevin as they browsed. We worked our way through the aisles and then the bustling North Beach scene before calling it a very good night. Here are a few of those magical moments.
