Allie and Steve were hoping for a gorgeous sunset for their engagement session, but the weather decided not to cooperate.  We ended up moving their shoot a half hour earlier so that we could at least get a few pictures without it pouring.  Thankfully, the poor weather meant that North Park was a little more empty than usual, and by the time it started raining, we had the park mostly to ourselves.

They were both a little unsure about being in front of the camera, so I asked about how he proposed.  It turns out, that they are fans of the movie Love Actually, and Steve proposed using big note cards just like the character, Mark, did, to show his love quietly and sweetly to a girl he could never have.  Luckily, Allie said yes, changing the story for the better!  Even more wonderfully, her parents knew and were involved.  

Here are some of my favorites from their shoot, and I can't wait to shoot their wedding in September!
