blissfully engaged: alicia & michael // san francisco engagement session, part II

sutro bath engagements__01

I left off my last post with part I of Alicia and Michael’s engagement session and we’ll start part II at the Sutro Bath ruins, where Alicia and Michael braved the wind and the San Francisco chill for some snuggly portraits by the ocean.

 It might be easy to breeze past the first sentence of this post and miss two huge factors from this day: that it was frustratingly windy and it was colder-than-normal-San Fran-cold. I’ve come to find that you can learn a lot about a relationship when things don’t go exactly as planned.  And what this day helped me learn about Alicia and Michael is that


so very


for each other.

They warm, they soothe, they cherish, they remind, they hearten, taking turns doing so. This was a great help during this shoot and I know will be a great help throughout their upcoming marriage.

With that, I give you part II of Alicia and Michael’s San Francisco engagement session.
