Slacker Hill, San Francisco
Jaclyn and Eric met at a rock climbing gym. Their outdoorsy, carefree wedding took place steps away from the entrance to Yosemite National Park. We took their bride and groom portraits on a granite rock face, a couple thousand feet above Yosemite Valley floor.
When we were planning their engagement photos, I knew I wanted to take these San Franciscans somewhere with a wide open view. I've shot a lot in the Marin Headlands, the non-city side of the Golden Gate Bridge, looking towards San Francisco. But what I didn't know about and stumbled upon was Slacker Hill. The walk there is straight up, and although short by hiking terms, not so short for photoshoot terms. But I have the best, most adventurous couples, and I can't tell you how many I've dragged up a hill! Jaclyn and Eric were more than willing, and we caught the best sunset! By the way, if you ever visit, directly opposite of this sunset is the Golden Gate Bridge!
This is my entry for @portraitcontest with the theme of golden hour, my favorite!
