emie and chris' engagement session - golden gate park - san francisco, california

commentator: monica

next year, emie & chris will be wed in tagaytay, a gorgeous location in the philippines. when they asked for potential referrals of other photographers based in the philippines, we were quick to mention the awesome manila-based metro photography. with their wedding several months away, they wanted to have an engagement session here in "the states," as filipinos would call the u.s.

we met up with the beautiful couple at golden gate park for photos around stow lake, the waterfall, and the chinese pavillion. as we kept seeing birds flying to and from the pavillion, we knew that pigeons were roosting above us. can you figure out how we got the "bird shot" below??? don't worry, no birds were harmed, although i probably scared away a few people visiting the park with my ridiculous yelling. =)

congrats on your engagement, emie & chris! can't wait to see your wedding photos blogged next year. =)
