I am very excited about this new chapter in the podcast. This awesome couple joined me in the studio on a Sunday morning, literally after our second engagement shoot. I’ll be photographing Maria Elena and Jose’s wedding in June of this year. We spoke about how they met, Jose’s incredible proposal, and how their wedding planning is coming along. It was really a treat to put down the camera (at least for an hour or so) and to get to know them on a more personal level. I was really grateful at how enthusiastic and candid they were about this conversation. Below, you can see a few photographs from our two engagement sessions (the first at sunset, at Baker Beach; the second in Niles, a historic town in Fremont). Maria Elena is a huge A’s fan, and her dream is to work for the team one day. You can see her repping the merch!
