ging & glen's engagement session

commentator dude: ed

very much in love and very down to earth... as they should be because they're from hawaii. they brought over the aloha spirit during the shoot, which made me miss hawaii and its food. mmmm.... shaved ice with ice cream.


additional commentary by: monica

ging & glen are high school sweethearts. they are originally from maui and recently relocated to orange county within the last few years. when asked about whether they'd like to return to their home state, ging said she'd love to raise her kids there. but first, they've gotta get married! and right now, they're engaged, which was the occasion for their shoot...

since their wedding will be on maui next year, this adorable couple wanted a true island feel for their e-session. sf is definitely far from hawaii but fortunately, there are places in this city tucked away that definitely have that tropical island feel. we chose stow lake in golden gate park for it's lush vegetation and awesome waterfall and the secluded rocky area of baker beach as the locations.

congratulations on your engagement, ging & glen! can't wait 'til your wedding next june!
