Last winter, I had the pleasure of shooting my sister and her fiancé during my visit to the bay area. Timmy & Jenni met at our church fellowship in San Francisco and started dating after about a year of getting to know each other. I’ve known Jenni since she was still a baby (obviously) and Timmy since he was still in high school. I still vividly remember the times I used to fight with Jenni about who should do the laundry or clean up the room when we were living together in Perth and my first year’s impression of Timmy, the high-spirited, highly-energized, and super competitive boy who’s always excited about playing any kinds of games and an expert at teasing people and being silly. I watched them grew up from being two innocent silly kids into two adults who have a mature relationship. After 7 years of dating—in which 5 long years of them were long-distanced relationship I should add (bravo!)—these two are finally getting hitched next month. I don’t think I’ve known anybody personally who have been in a relationship longer than these two and I can’t believe they are actually getting married!
Since we are spreading the news about their wedding, here’s a sneak peek to some of their engagement pictures. I’ll be posting more images in the near future when we are getting close to the wedding day. But for now, good luck with the wedding preparation you two! Couldn’t be happier for both of you :)

A little BTS story:
We actually had a family vacation at Lake Tahoe during that time and decided to do a short session while we were there. The weather was really nice. Snow was everywhere and we had a fun (somewhat freezing) shoot at the snow park. The other session was shot on another day when we got back to the bay area. The wind was blowing like crazy that day, but I think we managed to get some good shots of two of them at the Golden Gate Park.
