An At Home Backyard Engagement | Allison + Kirk | Orinda, California

Even though Allison + Kirk are going to be married this summer at one of the City’s most iconic venues, The San Francisco Mint, we decided to find something a little closer to home for their engagement session.  Quite literally, they chose Kirk’s parents’ gorgeous home in Orinda, and it couldn’t have been a more perfect backdrop!  I was greeted at the door by Allison, Kirk, and his parents, and felt so incredibly welcomed from the start.  With warm smiles and a cold drink, they graciously opened their beautiful home to me.  And can we talk about their amazing property?!  From the luscious landscaping, stone pathways and gorgeous views, to the lovely-and-also-very-hilarious couple that kept cracking one another up (and me too), it was a breeze of a shoot.  Sprinkled with some of that sweet California sunshine and, at times, armfuls of puppies, it just felt like their happy place, which made it mine, too!  Having all three of their pups in one photo was super important to Allison + Kirk and most definitely one of the main goals of our session… so you better BELIEVE we got that shot, with the help of a few treats (and Kirk’s parents!)  The rest of the session was easy, fun and awesome – just like the couple.  Allison + Kirk are my kind of people.  Looking forward to watching these two tie the knot back in the City this June 🙂At-Home-Orinda-Engagement-Photographer_1000.jpg
