Every couple wants the WOW FACTOR when it comes to shooting their engagement session. If you have never been to San Francisco’s Palace of Fine Arts, you would know that this place is the definition of stunning! Derick & Christine had said that they wanted a formal engagement and I knew that this was the place I had to recommend them.

Thankfully the day chosen was partly cloudy enough to allow in enough sun for their weather perfect engagement session at Baker Beach!
Pedro and Susan chose to have their wedding day ceremony at University of Pacific's Morris Chapel in Stockton.

Their hearts are outwardly expressed even through the craziness of their wedding day; there was nothing that shook them from showing their love for one another and others around them.
