I met Erin at a bridal show late last year. I remember because she had her little munchkin with her and I tried to swap a wedding album for the munchkin. (It didn’t work but I did get a smile and a giggle from the baby, so I consider that a success!) Her little one is sooooo cute you just want to put her in your pocket and give her hugs all day long!!!
As luck would have it Erin won one of the free engagement sessions we were giving away that day…and no it wasn’t rigged because Logan puppy picked the winners — not me. I called Erin up and we started planning their engagement session. She wanted something colorful and bright like a rose garden for the backdrop for their engagement session. I knew just the place too, San Mateo Central Park. They have a really lush rose garden and a beautiful gazebo which is perfect for engagement photos! When we showed up to the rose garden there was only one small problem…the roses weren’t quite in bloom yet. (Obviously they didn’t get the memo that I had an engagement photography session that day.) So onto Plan B, the Japanese Tea Garden. The cherry blossoms bloomed early this year and were a perfect backdrop for Erin and Craig’s engagement session.
The Japanese Tea Garden has so many beautiful trees, bushes, and flowers that it is a gorgeous backdrop for an engagement photography session. Erin & Craig loved the surroundings and I think it fit them even better than the rose garden! Funny how things work out sometimes!
Erin & Craig were so much fun to photograph! Even though I could not quite fit the stroller into my camera bag with their little one, I did manage to get lots of cute photos with the three of them! Which are just so adorable you can’t help but smile! Next year I get the honor of photographing their wedding! I just know it is going to be amazing, filled with laughter & love, and yes a very cute little munchkin who will be a whole lot bigger! I can hardly wait for next year to get here and see the amazing wedding that Erin & Craig planned together!
