Michelle + Aren (Engagement Photography) @ Palace of Fine Arts, San Francisco

I love it when my clients have the same sarcastic funny bone as myself, there’s always those few first minutes of meeting someone where you’re treading on unknown territory, afraid of saying something off-base that will offend the other. Sometimes I catch myself going a little too far with my deadpan humor, and have to remember that not everyone appreciates the fine nuances of what I consider to be witty charm (just ask my wife!). Well with Michelle and Aren, I knew we were on the same wavelength in the first 30 seconds of our engagement shoot at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco. They are playful, funny, and we all spent a lot of time laughing as much as posing and shooting. This makes for great “posed candids” as I like to call them. Engagement shoots should be romantic, dare-I-say sexy, and most of all fun. I think it’s the secret sauce that attracts clients to my work, and probably why so many of the people that hire me tend to have that same funny bone. Go figure. Anyway, here’s my favorite photos below, check out the rest at www.GoodEyePhotography.com.

    Michelle Finch - I LOVE the pictures. Best wedding photographer ever. Now if I could just go back and suggest to my past self that in an outdoor photoshoot it might be wise to bring a hairbrush!!! (duh) Although probably all for the best, this way is more like me anyway.
