San Francisco seriously has my heart. If you didn’t know, I actually worked as a Design Intern out at Apple HQ and lived in San Francisco for a few months which was a dream! San Fran is mere hours from some of the nation’s most amazing national parks, but even within the city there are just too many gorgeous locations to explore from beaches to hillside parks to gorgeous feats of architecture!

When it came time for Kate and Dmytro’s session in the city, I had such a hard time picking where to shoot that I ultimately asked if they were game for a tour of the city to hit some of my favorite spots, because when you’re working with a couple who are BOTH models, you make the most of it!

Enjoy taking a look at a collaborative styled shoot featuring a stunner dress from BoChic Bridal Boutique, Coordination from KMC Destinations and Susan from Jireh Artistry’s gorgeous hair and makeup skills that, despite the rain, held up with windswept epic-ness.
