Romantic lighting, happy laughter and the perfect location made for a magical engagement portrait photoshoot.

When Shaena contacted me about doing her engagement photographs in iconic San Francisco bar, Rickhouse, I could not be more excited! As you all know, I am primarily an outdoor photographer, but I do love the challenge of photographing in dark interiors every once in a while. Rickhouse is a trendy, whisky filled bar packed with lots and lots of dark stained wood, candles and a roaring fire, and has a cosy atmosphere that makes you feel right at home the moment you step inside. Shaena & Chris also reconnected in Rickhouse a couple of years ago after losing touch with each other, so it was the perfect place to photograph such a romantic time in their lives. We managed to sneak down to the ferry building before the sun set to capture some fun moments outdoors too.

Congratulations on your engagement guys! It was a pleasure photographing you.
