We recently got together with Monica + Garrett for their engagement session.  They brought along their little pup Stinson for a few shots too!  He was named after Stinson Beach, one of their favorite spots, and where Garrett proposed to Monica.  It’s definitely one of our favorite local getaways as well.

We started things off with a little “family portrait”.  Stinson was a tricky little fella to photograph, but Monica was able to work her charms on him for this one.

The area we used for the shoot was absolutely spectacular.  They wanted images with the Golden Gate as a feature, and it doesn’t get any better than this.  It’s gonna be tough to name a favorite from this session!

If I was forced to choose a favorite, I think this would be the one…..

….or maybe this one.

We had a great time shooting with you guys!  We can’t wait to do it again at your Casa Real wedding in the Fall!


  • Monica - Cliff, these are wonderful!!! I’m so glad you were able to capture a great pic of the pup even though he wasn’t cooperating at first (by the way, doesn’t it look like his paw is on Garrett’s knee like, “this is my human”?) And I’m glad that last pic came out so well – the freezing was worth it! Thanks so much, can’t wait to see the rest!

  • Anca Voicu - Hello Cliff, The pictures are all so beautiful and natural. I do not know which one is my favorite! I like them all but the ones with GG in the back are amazing!

  • Cliff - Thanks so much for the comments! I’m happy you’re enjoying them!

  • Catalin Alexa - So simple and so strong. Perfect!
