When I first met Lan & Matt in Walnut Creek last September to discuss wedding details (and have coffee of course), I immediately had “that feeling” you get when you know you’ve found a good match. Their large, Vietnamese-Catholic wedding (we’re talking two huge families–I can’t wait, it’s going to be so much fun!) goes down in January, but yesterday I met up with this incredibly happy couple for an engagement shoot at the Japanese Tea Garden in Golden Gate Park.
We are so lucky to live in such a temperate climate. Though it was definitely chilly, it was a gorgeous sunny December day, and (best of all) the leaves haven’t yet fallen from the Japanese Maples. I had such a great time with Josephine & Matt, watching them relax enough to see their silly sides come out, their nerves drop away & their love for each other shine.
I had a hard time narrowing down this sneak peek to just a couple of shots, so here’s a few more than that. Merry Christmas! ♥
