I met Grace and Chris back in college at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, when I pledged Alpha Phi Omega, a co-ed community service fraternity. (Yes... even in college I remained a nerd.) By the time I joined the fraternity, they had been dating for a year or so. Now we're all grown up, and after many years of dating, Grace and Chris are ready for the next chapter in their life. To this day, Grace is the only one who can perfectly describe my type of man: burly. She's sassy and full of grace (of course!) and knows more about cars than any girl I know--maybe any boy, too. She majored in graphic communications while Chris majored in political science. Despite the obvious contradiction of politics and the arts, Grace and Chris mesh perfectly with each other.
We shot their session at three different locations, but my favorite was Fort Funston. Grace and Chris would go there often; it's a great place to bring a dog, enjoy the view and watch hang gliders. I loved shooting their engagement session and witnessing their goofiness and shared giggles.
