Monique and Ray's San Francisco Engagement Session: Palace of Fine Arts and Sutro Baths

If you stop someone on the street and ask them what they think might be some of the most romantic, steamy music in the world might be, I bet a lot of them will say Salsa music. And it was at a salsa dance class where Monique and Ray's dance-paths crossed, where they met, and where they fell in love...

And it might have been destiny that these two eventually found each other, it turns out they had worlds in common. While Monique was waiting for him to pick her up for their fist date, she heard a loud put-puttering of an old car coming down the street. Curious, she ran to see what was causing the noise... and it was her date, Ray, coming to pick her up in an old VW Beetle... the classic version of the same car she drives! Later, they learned that they both lived in San Diego for a time and that they both completed their degrees at San Diego State University! (PS- I love this because I'm from San Diego and I studied there too!) It's a small world, indeed!

These two are so sweet, and I had a great time getting to know them during their engagement session. It was one of the warmest, sunniest days I've experienced since being in San Francisco. We ventured to the beautiful Palace of Fine Arts and Sutro Baths at Land's End and had a great time! Along the way I learned that only a few people very close to them knew about their engagement, so they were planning to surprise the rest of their family and friends with the news about their wedding after their engagement session! Well, the world now knows to expect a massively fun wedding in September!
