Ashley, Austin and I met up a couple of weeks ago in the Dallas Arts District for their engagement session. It was my first time to meet Austin and it was quickly evident to my why Ashley had told me emphatically at our first meeting that, “Everyone loves Austin.” These two are ridiculously adorable together, Ashley is a total babe, and I am DIGGING the new walking bridge near the Margaret Hunt Hill bridge.
Enjoy a peek into some of my favorites from their session!
Ashley and Austin, I am SO PUMPED for your Watermark Community Church wedding next month. Until then, friends!
In April James and I had the pleasure of exploring San Francisco for the first time ever while I was there to photograph an engagement session. Yes, I know April was two months ago, but the first opportunity I had to go through our personal photos was last week, so when you think of it that way my turn-around time is PHENOMENAL.
My thoughts on the city are as follows:
- Within our first two hours in SF we consumed a cannoli, a blueberry pastry, a latte and some pizza focaccia bread. And all within a few blocks of each other. Any city in which I can achieve this feat is alright by me.
- THE TREES HERE ARE INSANE. Just insane. I cannot comment enough about the trees.
- Before you see it, you might think to yourself, “I’m not gonna be THAT impressed by the Golden Gate Bridge,” but when I got there I really was just THAT impressed with it. I couldn’t stop taking photos of it.
- GIVE ME ALL YOUR PURPLE FLOWERS, SAN FRANCISCO. And on this note, someone help me identify what these purple flowers are (you will see plenty of photos in this post) so that I can plant them at home.
- People are not joking when they tell you to bring a jacket.
- Where else would you see a flower that looks JUST LIKE a fried egg?
And with these profound thoughts, I will leave you to peruse some of my favorite images from our trip.
We started off our first day of sight-seeing with two art museums (because that’s what traveling looks like when you’re married to a painter) — the first of which was Legion of Honor.
Every new place I want to explore with him.
Day two was used for scouting for Saturday’s shoot, so we did all of the nature exploring which was right up my alley. We started out at the Sutro Bath Ruins and once we got there I just couldn’t keep myself from pointing at everything and asking James over and over, “Isn’t this so BEAUTIFUL?!? How can you even stand it?!?” For the record, his response was that he was more impressed with the art. Sigh, my sweet, pretentious painter man.
Our last day in San Fran was spent with our dear friends who hosted us while we were in CA, Robert and Amber. My favorite photo of them from the trip is this one of them running down a hill towards the ocean like the fun and adventurous couple they are.
If you follow me on instagram (@jillian_zamora_photo) then you were subjected to many a #JZdoesSF post through the course of our trip. Below are a few of my favorites.
I had the best, best time in San Francisco with James and it really is one of those places that begs you to return. That’s my plan anyway.
The thing about Libby and Camrann’s wedding day is that it was wonderful.
Libby and Camrann, what a gift it was to photograph y’all in this season. An absolute gift.
Every single thing I know of Casey and Will, I adore.
I adore that neither of them ever hold back on their laughs, I adore Casy’s vibrant red hair, and (perhaps most of all) I adore that for all of Will’s tattoos and lip ring there’s no chance even a passing stranger could miss how much of a softie he is for that beautiful fiancé next to him.
