Shirley & Patrick : Engaged


It was a very blustery day.

It was gray and wet and misty.

And the sky threatened to open up and pour down rain. But it didn’t.

Someone was looking out for us on Saturday.

Shirley and Patrick first met through a San Francisco-based Activities Club. Shirley had organized an event, and Patrick was the only one to show up. What could have been seen as a bust, turned out to be very successful indeed. I met with  Shirley and Patrick at the Legion of Honor on Saturday for their engagement session as we braved the looming rain and frigid winds. In spire of the weather, we had a great session!

After that, we went to China Beach where we had to descend a steep set of stairs. Shirley was wearing a pretty serious pair of heels and stared at the challenge. Patrick, without second thought, ran back to the car, and brought her a pair of his shoes so she could get down the stairs without breaking her neck or ankle. So sweet. She may have looked a little silly, but what did it matter? They are a definite team!

I have to give some serious props to Shirley who toughed it out in the cold in a strapless dress, including the wind chill factor it must have been between 30-40 degrees! That’s FREEZING by California standards. By the end, Patrick was swinging Shirley around on the beach like it was 80 degrees outside. Who cares about the cold when you’re fiance can keep you warm?!
