Melissa and John are engaged to be married on May 31st, 2009. This past Sunday we met up at the Hakone Gardens in Saratoga for an engagement session. We got there a little earlier to talk for a bit before we began the photo session. We were hoping for warmer weather, especially since Melissa had prepared these cute dresses! Unfortunately it was still kind of chilly, but Melissa toughed it out and went ahead with the outfits she planned! Thanks so much for being great sports.

The session was full of laughter and we got to know each other pretty well. John and Melissa are such an adorable couple. We can’t wait to cover their wedding in May!

Jeanny and Philip are one of the most energetic couple we’ve ever met. Philip is spontaneous and fun while Jeanny is sweet and delightful. They are constantly laughing – you can see how happy they are and how much they adore each other.

After all the running and jumping at Monopoly in the Park in San Jose, we went to La Victoria for some delicious burrito and the La Victoria special sauce. The sauce is really to-die-for!

Mark and I met up with Stephanie and Larry at the Ferry Building Market Place in San Francisco. They were sooo easy to work with! Stephanie is like a pro – she knew what pictures she wanted and had great ideas to try out. We had tons of fun trying different shots although we were hoping there would be more people at the Market Place. Maybe we can go back and try it again on a Saturday? :)
