Engagement Session: Tom + Eleanor

Hello all! Long time no blog! :) But you will love this one! *excitement giggle*

Meet Tom and Eleanor. I met this sweet couple on the day of the actual shoot, but by the end of the day, I felt like we had been friends all long! I swear! They were so easy going, fun and up for anything -- the perfect ingredients to be the perfect couple to photograph! It also comes in handy that they are so adorable together and she had a fantastic dress on!

I had the pleasure of working with Tom and El through my high school friend, Sharlyn. (Isn't "El" such a cool nickname for Eleanor?! It's like she is THE GIRL, get it? El = "The" in Spanish? okay okay ... moving on!) As I was saying ... I met El because she is the sister of Sharlyn's husband, Mart. Shar and Mart, who live all the way in Australia, contacted me the moment Tom popped the question. They wanted to give the newly engaged lovebirds a special gift --> an engagement shoot! How awesome is that?! Not only is it a practical gift, but also something the couple will cherish and keep for a long long time!

I must say, the family love sent from Australia sure is gggreeeaaaaat!

This first photo above was taken infront of the office building where Tom and El met. It meant so much to them to go back to the place where it all started. So we met there on Sansome Street in downtown San Francisco on a warm Sunday afternoon.

Aren't they just so naturally sweet?

From Sansome, we just wandered downtown and soaked up the city life. Such fun!
