An Engagement Session by the Pacific

Thanks to Hannah for introducing me to photographer Kelty of Streep Street! Hannah is Kelty’s twin sister and a GWS reader. She sent me a sweet note about her sister and I have to say I was a bit blown away by Kelty’s work. She is still pretty new to the photography thing, but you would never know by looking at her photos. She lives in San Francisco, but planning a move to Portland in July. Her photos have a bit of a vintage feel and all the sessions are just full of fun!

A bit about this session from Kelty. Paul and Alex met in Southern China, moved to San Francisco, and got engaged in the desert in Jordan. They describe their meeting, courtship, and engagement as a very special and surreal experience… In fact, when we first met to take their engagement photos last week, I could practically feel the magic in the air… Which could have had something to do with the fact that they live in a private cove, tucked away in Pacifica! Their rosy little house perched on stilts sits cozily in Shelter Cove, a stone’s throw from the water. We spent a delightful afternoon roaming around their “backyard”, hiking around the cove, goofing at the house, rolling in the succulents, kicking in the surf, and admiring the views from every direction. Despite the gorgeous atmosphere of the cove, Alex and Paul’s obvious love for one another was easily my favorite part of the landscape.
