Nina & Adam • Lands End • Couple Portraits

Nina and I were classmates and dorm neighbors in high school, and though we hadn’t really been in touch since the good ole days, I was ecstatic to have a reunion with her and meet her fiancé Adam.

The fun and outdoorsy couple wanted to have our engagement photoshoot in a forest type setting, so I suggested going to Lands End at the west edge of San Francisco, where nature and humanity meet. The top end of the easy trail is surrounded by wind-blown cypress trees, but as you walk down towards the Pacific Ocean, you’ll find the amazing remnants of Sutro Baths, once the world’s largest indoor swimming pool. It was only at the shoot when Adam and Nina told me this was actually where he proposed!

It was a rainy, cloudy afternoon and the sun was quickly setting. Nina and Adam braved the cold wind and rain, and we laughed our way through the one-hour session!
