Breathtaking Cliffside Engagement

As far as we’re concerned, the only prop needed to ensure your engagement photos are stunning is a breathtaking setting. Molly and Alex’s session from Kyle John Photography certainly checks that off the list, and then some.

Molly shares a bit of their story with us:

Alex originally planned to propose last winter at the end of a hike in Point Reyes, but a surprise rainy day in the midst of California’s drought caused a change in plans (and an indoor proposal). This day, with our photographer Kyle, saw perfect weather and we had a lovely time celebrating our engagement as the sun set over the Pacific. While our wedding next May is in the Midwest, we knew we wanted our engagement photos to reflect our current home in northern California. This location is one of our favorites, with its stunning cliffs, epic views, and beautiful beaches.

Magical San Francisco Engagement

You know that your engagement photos are going to be beautiful when your own photographer describes the day as “magical.” Brittney and Ryan’s San Francisco engagement session doesn’t disappoint – from the sweeping views to the warm sunset to the fog rolling over the hills at the end of the day, each image is as breathtaking as the last. Rylee Hitchner’s beautiful film shots show off just what we love most about film photography: a dreamy, calming quality that is inspiring and refreshing at the same time.

Natural Mountain Elopement

We just adore the simplicity of this elopement and the sweetness of it all. Eloping in the mountains with only your betrothed is the most intimate way to exchange vows, and we love the way this team designed this beautiful day! Keep reading for more on their inspiration for this lovely natural mountain elopement.

From Lauren Kinsey:

Myrtie Blue and I dreamed up this shoot for over a year. Brian almost built his business near the Blue Ridge mountains, so that area is his second home. We dreamed the idea of a romantic elopement in the woods, nestled on a quaint piece of property with a stream, and a cabin that is over 200 years old. The gown was provided by Chris Riley bridal.
