Last week Nicole and Dave flew me up to their beautiful little city full of fog to shoot an engagement session. I think they were thinking they’d get some rad pictures. But I was thinking I’d get to know them and their relationship a little better…and we all were right.
I spent the night with them drinking Irish coffees and the morning drinking chai tea sitting on their couch with Nicole while we both worked on our laptops. Nicole raised the roof in the middle of the day, just because she felt it like it. When Dave got home, we relaxed a bit before heading up to the roof, just moments after fog had consumed the downtown view. No problem, we had a cactus. After making them a little too uncomfy a little too close to the edge (all in the name of a good shot!), we went to Dolores Park and laid in the sun soaked grass. Me too, of course (did ya’ll see my groovy action shot on Facebook?). Then an ‘extra’ with 7 foot dreads (literally) got in our way, so we relocated and finished in front of a church before wrapping for dinner. It was delightful to get to capture a bit of Dave and Nicole in that city that captures so much of who they are.
They are a dynamic couple with such amazing energy. Dave has kind and open energy that lifts you up every time he lifts his brow. Nicole has orange energy that is contagiously happy and exciting. And my sweet friend Knudsen who helped us out by assisting…contributed his layers of awesome energy as well. Then of course I have good energy. I know this, because I feel it every day. Don’t ask me to describe it though.
I can describe how great this couple is, however! And it’s better with images than with words…
