Sara + Nick | Engaged!

We recently had the chance to shoot Sara and Nick’s engagement session here in SF.  We started off at their beautiful home in the Marina and shot along the way to the Palace of Fine Arts.  It was a nice challenge for me to make something different at the Palace, as it’s probably the most photographed location in the city (probably tied with Baker Beach) when it comes to engagement sessions and wedding photos.  I’d say we succeeded!  We made some of my all time favorite engagement images together.


I’m experimenting with the idea of eliminating the “Cliff Brunk” watermark from blog images as well.  Let me know if you have thoughts one way or the other.undefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefined

So difficult to pick a favorite from this session, but I think this is it:undefinedundefined


We loved meeting you both and getting to know you!


  • Mark - Very clever framing and compositions there, Cliff. And the light is sweet!

  • Sara - Cliff – these are amazing!! You would never know that there were 500 people at the Palace that day. The colors and shadows are unreal! We are thrilled with how these turned out, and we can’t wait to see the rest.

  • Elizabeth Hawkins - What a great shoot! The pictures are just gorgeous.

  • Milla - Cliff I adore this session… it just oozes FW knowledge and sweet light. So good, friend.

  • Cliff - Thank you Mark, Sara, Elizabeth, and Milla!

  • Kevin Lam - Gorgeous use of light Cliff! Great images!

  • Wendy Hithe - Saaaweeeeeeeeeeeet! I really love your watermark and branding. I think you should bring it back. 🙂

  • Martins Kikulis - That favourite of yours from the session is definitely the best.. Loving it!
