It is quite scary how long I’ve known the Quinn family. I’ve known Katie, Colleen and Meghan through swimming ever since I can remember. It is crazy to me that time has flown by such that I will be photographing Katie’s wedding this May! Katie and Taylor met at the Naval Academy and beat the odds of having a long distance relationship. They were stationed in different states but will be finally moving to San Francisco together as husband and wife!

Since Taylor was visiting Labor Day weekend, we thought it was the perfect time to hang out and snap some engagement photos. We ventured to Brookside Gardens at sunrise. None of us had ever been before so we spent the morning wandering around the hidden paths and beautiful blooms of the public garden. I cannot wait to photograph these two again at their Naval Academy wedding in 2018! Here are some of my favorite images from the Brookside Garden engagement session.
