After so many years, it’s great to see original engagement sessions where the couple can truly work with their photographer to infuse parts of their personality into the shoot. We adore what Jessee Leake did for this couple, and how fun their engagement session turned out. We hope you’ll take some ideas from them and turn your engagement photos, maternity session, and even some wedding photos into a fun event!

From Jesse:

I like to incorporate something of personal interest from my clients into their engagement shoots. Kelsey and Pete were both college athletes and wanted to do something fun and and to include their dog, Jaxon, who loves football. They brought Jaxon, a football, a blanket, and a couple of beers, and we played as the sun was setting. Kelsey and Pete are from San Francisco, so I chose Baker Beach where the Golden Gate Bridge can been seen in the background.
