Pier 14 Engagement Shoot
Hamad and Wasiya’s Fort Point and Pier 14 engagement shoot started with a foggy and drizzly morning. In hindsight, the grey atmosphere and lighting helped their vibrant clothing stand out more, helping illuminate them naturally. Despite the temperature, Wasiya would not let it deter her from showing off her new dress purchase she fell in love with the moment she saw it. After telling me how much she loved her dress (me too!) I knew had to take some solo photos of her rocking her outfit! Though I am sure most couples would disagree with me, I personally enjoy shooting the day after it rains because the leftover rain puddles act as natural mirrors and allow me to add another dimension to their images. Being from Fremont, they had a connection to the Bay Bridge as they frequently took it to go to and from work but also to spend dates in San Francisco…so it was only natural we included it in their images.
In addition to showing off the Bridge that is more personal to them, they wanted to also have their portraits taken with the Golden Gate Bridge so that they can send these more recognizable photos to their parents in India. While the Pier 14 and Bay Bridge were more for them and signifying their relationship (while wearing more western clothing), the Golden Gate Bridge photos were somewhat focused on their family and culture, as Wasiya opted for a more traditional wardrobe to represent her Indian background.
