Art, Love, and Life this engagement photo shoot in SFMOMA
Christy and Tim are the kind of couple that you want to be friends with. They are cool without trying, artistic without being over-the-top, and have a seemingly effortless zest for life that makes them magnetic.
Their engagement photoshoot in SFMOMA and Sutro Baths in San Francisco was the perfect reflection of their love for art and nature. Scroll to enjoy their photos below, or scroll down to read their story.
Colors and Cachet
Christy and Tim truly are magnetic. They are gorgeous inside and out. The type of people you want to sit down for a glass of wine with (and we did) and talk about art, travel, love and life.
Art, happy living and giving to others are all key values for this couple. They are both passionate about their work and their family time. Tim is a designer from Norway and Christy works with underserved teenagers. They love taking their dogs on adventures in the big outdoors.
The couple grew up together and now are planning their wedding later this year. Congrats guys!
Modern Art, Modern Couple
Given that art is such a big part of their life, it is no surprise that they chose an engagement photo shoot in SFMOMA as one of their locations. We started their session exploring the lines and purity of the space. It perfectly set off their warm connection and stylish outfits. Having a sunny San Francisco city in the background was just a beautiful added bonus.
Rays of Light
I’ve had the pleasure of shooting at San Francisco’s sumptuous Sutro Baths several times (including this romantic bohemian wedding shoot with Yana & Roman). On this particular evening, though, there was something supremely special about the light. The autumn tones combined with the misty rays of sun beaming through the forest. It was breathtaking. In fact, I chose one of their unique photos to kick off my collection of favorite photos from 2016.
Christy and Tim’s artistic style along with their natural connection made for a super enjoyable and beautiful session. I think they enjoyed themselves as well. Here are some of the kind words they left as a review:
“Seb takes care of his clients and has their interests in the forefront of his mind as he moves and plans the session. He is thorough and genuinely interested in your vision. What I loved was his consistency and professionalism – his system is phenomenal and you are able to prep, communicate, pay, and view images all through his website.
It truly felt seamless. I could not endorse him more! His aesthetic sense and his dedication to beautiful photography is profound. My partner and I were shy and nervous about taking photos at first. But, at the end of the shoot we felt comfortable and when we saw the final product we were in awe. You’d be silly to not choose Sebastien! In addition, he is French and insists on wine always.”
I will always insist on wine, you can be sure.
