Kathy and John met in San Francisco, so shooting their engagement pictures out in the city was a must! A couple years ago, when they lived in San Francisco, Kathy, John and Kaitlyn, Kathy's daughter, would go to Crissy Field to hangout and relax nearly every weekend. It has such a beautiful view of the Golden Gate Bridge! Kaitlyn would read and Kathy and John would play a game of Scrabble and sip wine. I loved having Kaitlyn there with me to help out. She knew the perfect things to say to get her mom to smile!
These few pictures in the coffee shop are very special. Every morning, the two of them will sip coffee as John reads the paper and Kathy works and reads on her iPad. Occasionally, Kaitlyn will get a turn on Kathy's iPad and apparently she is quite a pro when in comes to playing Angry Birds!
Isn't Kathy so creative?? She figured out this whole set up before we started shooting!
I loved their block letter idea!
I think it's great to take photos that reflect the activities that couples do in their daily lives. It puts so much more meaning into the session and creates an even more memorable image!
