Nelly + Michael: Road Trip Engagement

Nelly and Michael are the kind of humans you want at your birthday party, your dinner party, your weeknight cereal dinner- basically anytime you're doing anything. They are full of life, full of joy, and full of love for each other- and it just spills over to everyone around them. Nelly and Michael are both fishermen in Alaska, and they drove their VW camper van to San Francisco where we met for a weekend of playing and shooting their engagement photos along the coast. (Side note: Nelly made that flower crown. Talent show material.) This shoot is one of the reasons I love my work. And why it hardly feels like work at all.
