When I asked them about their relationship, Neil said it perfectly…that he & Vanessa are like two puzzle pieces that are jagged & crazy on one side, but that they are two puzzles pieces that fit together perfectly. He & Vanessa met long ago in school & re-connected again through Facebook. Vanessa had friended him but had forgotten how they had originally met. When Neil reminded her who he was-and what class they had together in High School, it all clicked. HE was the kid who sat in the back of class who was funny & mischievous. HE was the kid who made her laugh. They met up for a first date & the rest was history. Now they are a fantastically FUN couple who are absolutely hilarious together. They are planning a wedding next month at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco. It’s a total understatement to say that I am SO excited for their wedding! If their engagement session was any indication of what their wedding will be like, I know I’m in for an exciting & fabulous wedding!
When I first met up with Vanessa, I knew that I wanted to be her new BFF. She is energetic, fun, exciting & has the best wardrobe I’ve ever seen. When I asked her what Neil is like, she told me about how awesome he is-and she was right! They are literally the perfect match and their engagement session was a total blast. They brought their own props-and even brought along their darling dog Beefcake. We.had.so.much.FUN! I am so excited to share these photographs with you all-so here they are!
We started out in San Francisco where it was sunny & gorgeous…
Neil wasn’t too excited about holding the flowers…obviously!
Once we got down to the Embarcadero, it was pouring rain!!! Vanessa & Neil were total champs, though & I love how the photos in the rain ended up!
We took a dinner break while it poured rain outside & when we finished eating, the light outside was perfect….and the rain was gone!
This photograph perfectly shows just how much fun Vanessa & Neil have together-I LOVE it!
Vanessa’s mother gave Neil this awesome wrestling mask for Christmas-these photos were so much fun to take-we were all laughing so hard!!
