When Emily told me that she had an idea, but it involved a bit of an adventure, I was in before I even looked at the location she suggested for her and her fiancé’s engagement session.
Then, I googled the location and about DIED (in the best way). Not only does this spot have the most gorgeous view of the Golden Gate ever, but it also required a bit of a hike…AKA no tourists ?
Kirby Cove is a beautiful, secluded beach with gorgeous views of the Golden Gate. Cars can’t access this campground/beach area so we were almost alone (with the exception of another photographer and a crab fisherman who was catching crab while we were shooting!).
But enough raving about the location, because I want to rave about Emily + Corbin! They are one of my 2019 #SMBcouples and are getting married in one of my favorite venues in September. I hadn’t met them in person until their engagement session, but we quickly became fast friends, and I had the best time playing on the beach with them.
Corbin popped the question on Christmas morning, while Emily still had bed head (but she wouldn’t have it any other way!) He hid the ring in their kitchen and took Emily completely by surprise. They were able to celebrate with their family later that day at Christmas dinner.
