Josh and Malia went to high school together.
Now they are getting married and although Malia currently lives in Southern CA, Josh spends most of his time in Northern CA. His family is originally from San Francisco and the city is extremely important to them. When they approached me about becoming their wedding photographer and indicated that they’d like to have a SF engagement session I was overjoyed and readily suggested an all day tromp-through-the-city affair.
We started out our afternoon with a leisurely lunch in Little Italy at The Italian Homemade Company where the chefs serenaded us in Italian while dishing up huge heaping portions of homemade gnocchi rolls. After that, we took a stroll through Washington Square Park over to Mara’s Italian Pastries for the requisite post lunch cannoli. After that, we spent the rest of the day touristing at all the biggest and most iconic SF landmarks for the ultimate San Francisco portrait session: the Bay Bridge, the Ferry Building, The Palace of Fine Arts, Golden Gate Park, the Legion of Honor, and Land’s End, among others! We ended our day at an amazing event called Off the Grid that takes place in Fort Mason every Friday night.
It was a whirlwind day all over the city filled with amazing food, lots of laughter and really amazing company. I’m looking forward to their wedding in December after spending such a wonderful and inspiring day with this fantastic couple.
