Heidi & Blayne : Engaged | Ferry Building | The Embarcadero

07.01.2009

They knew that they would get married. They had talked about it. It was going to happen.

The question that remained was when.

As preparations for Christmas began, they set up their little tree. After an exhausting day of decorating, she was too pooped to move. When he called her into the other room to check out the tree, she almost didn’t budge. But something told her to get up and check it out.

Perched upon a branch of the little Christmas tree was something sparkly. Something that wasn’t an ornament she could recall. It was a ring. In that moment, he asked her to spend her life with him. Blayne proposed to Heidi. She said, “Yes!”

I had the esteemed honor of shooting Heidi and Blayne’s engagement session along the Embarcardero in San Francisco. Heidi and Blayne currently live and work in Hawaii, but both had short stints living in California. Heidi contacted me a few months ago about shooting their e-session while on a short vacation in Califonia. They thought it would be fun to get some urban shots in San Francisco, and so did I! Heidi and Blayne were great to work with! They even brought me some Chocolate Caramel covered Macadamia Nuts. Mmmm.

Ngan & Donald : Engaged | The Embarcardero | San Francisco

06.01.2009

She noticed him first. Ngan had a crush on him. But he was just a friend. At least that’s what she thought. They were running in intersecting circles of friends and would see each other frequently. They would hang out in groups¬† and she’d look for a glimmer of a sign. Maybe they could be something more?

Eventually Donald noticed Ngan, too. He thought she was cute. She thought he was cute. With each brush of their hands, they wondered if it meant something, but never asked each other. Finally, Donald wrote Ngan a letter. He expressed everything that wasn’t coming to him verbally. And, they’ve been together ever since. After seven years of dating, Donald popped the question to Ngan over a beautiful surprise dinner at French Laundry. Ngan told me she was totally surprised. My favorite kind of proposal!

Ngan and Donald are also the AWESOME couple who brought me cupcakes to their engagement shoot. They were so much fun to hang out with! Thanks you two!

We started at the far end of the Embarcardero
