Rachel & Adam // Cavallo Point & Marin Headlands Engagement

As I approached our iconic starting spot just under the Golden Gate Bridge, I could see the fog menacingly wafting over the hills ready to settle in. Working often in the SF Bay Area, fog is certainly something we are accustomed to. I know we can always capture beautiful moments no matter the weather we are given. But on this day, just at the start of spring, I had high hopes we would have a warm sunny day. We started our session on the lawn of Cavallo Point. Rachel and Adam brought along their pup, Theo. We bundled up as much as we could and embraced the quickly changing weather. For the first 15 minutes we were just trying to find our rhythm amongst the wind and fog. As quickly as we got comfortable, the fog disappeared. I stopped in the middle of photographing and said, “Did the fog just disappear?!” We were all thrilled, making plans to rush off to Rodeo Beach in hopes to take advantage of that late afternoon glow. We were met with a golden sunset masked just slightly by the incoming clouds. Even though it was freezing cold, no one could deny the beauty all around us. These experiences are forever reminders of the magic of this part of Northern California. I feel so lucky that we can experience so many different backdrops and ecosystems in just a short distance. We had a wonderful evening and I am so excited to photograph Rachel and Adam’s Sonoma wedding this summer!
