Engagement Photos Among the Redwoods

Alexandra & Jason wanted a woodsy vibe for their engagement photos. Redwood Regional Park in Oakland provides the perfect backdrop! Their adorable cat, Pandora also joined us for the shoot. We were nervous about Pandora running off into the woods. But Pandora behaved herself and didn’t stray from us (thankfully!). We loved getting those treasured engagement photos for them. A little know fact about Philippe, is that he got his start in photography taking pictures of animals. So we always get excited when couples bring their animals along for their engagement photos, or even the wedding day. Philippe knew just what to do to get Pandora’s attention for that kiss photo.

After Pandora left, we concentrated on getting breathtaking engagement photos among the gigantic trees. Jason and Alexandra are huge Harry Potter fans. Thus, they used a sign that incorporated the triangle emblem from the movie. We love shoots that have some unique elements to them and this one didn’t disappoint.

Unlike traditional proposals, Alexandra was actually the one to propose to Jason. So he is actually the one with the ring in the engagement photos. Capturing the hands clasping each other while framed by the massive redwoods was one of the highlights for us.

Looking Forward to 2021 Wedding!

Alexandra and Jason were so happy with their engagement photos, that they booked us to capture both photo and video for their wedding in October 2021 at Jefferson Street Mansion by Wedgewood. Can’t wait for their wedding! It can’t come soon enough. We are sure it will produce a ton more fun and unique experiences and photos for us to share.

Engagement sessions gives us an opportunity to truly get to know couples and their personalities before the pressure of a wedding day. To see more of our unforgettable engagement shoots, check out our other engagement blogs.

We met when Christine was travelling in Rwanda and volunteering at the organization Philippe worked for. It took him several weeks to get the courage to talk to her.

There is a special place in our hearts for Africa, especially Rwanda. We try to travel there every couple years. Such a fun country, and known for their mountain gorillas!

We love to camp with the family. Such a great experience with the kids, and it's great to get outdoors and enjoy nature.

Our other favorite thing to do is to attend gatherings with friends and family.  Visiting and connecting with people we cherish is so important to us!
