Mt Tam engagement photos are always some of my absolute favorites!! If you combine taking photos in Muir Woods with Mt. Tam, you’ll get the richest variety in your photos! It has a little bit of everything from gorgeous vibrant forests, to rolling green hills, to the most perfect view of the ocean!! It’s the perfect spot if you’re looking for a lot of variety! Plus, if you’re lucky, you’ll get a cloudy evening and you’ll quite literally be above the rolling clouds for the sunset. It’s seriously magical!!!

Mt Tam

This couple was sooo easy going and shared non-stop giggles together!!! These two brought so much energy and are so full of joy!!! We started in casual outfits to hike around the forest and then gradually got fancier with each of the next stops!

One of my favorite things about these two is that they have the CUTEST first date story I’ve ever heard. Ali and Luka met while working together at a restaurant!! Their first date happened because a group of coworkers were going to get together one night to watch a meteor shower, but they were the only two who ended up going!!! They stayed up all night  to watch the meteor shower together, and got so wrapped up in talking that it led to a breakfast date that very same morning!!! Doesn’t that sound like it’s straight from a rom com?!

Falling stars & breakfast burritos on a first date?! SO freakin’ cute and magical!!!!

Their morning first date brought them so much inspiration for their wedding, and they’ll be having a sunrise elopement in Napa in 2022. I’m beyond excited! They envision chicken fried waffles, lots of lounging areas for guests, and of course, the cutest espresso cart I’ve ever seen!! I’ll be hitting that up all wedding long and I can’t wait!!!
