San Francisco Botanical Gardens Engagement Photos | Karissa + Casey


Some locations are filled with so much beauty and that is exactly what San Francisco Botanical Gardens consisted of. For Karissa and Caseys engagement session we explored through the botanical gardens and got some amazing photos. The day was beautiful, blue skies, the weather was perfect, and it was an overall great day.

Karissa and Casey were so much fun to capture, they were always giddy and laughing and they are just so in love. The quiet intimate moments they had were my favorite to photograph.

Karissa and Casey have known each other since they were 16. Caseys dad was Karissa’s soccer coach and his sister was on her team. Karissa could tell Casey was interested in her but she was apprehensive dating the coaches son. Casey asked Karissa out a couple times, but she always declined. For the next 5 years they remained good friends. Karissa found herself dating all the wrong guys and realized she might actually like Casey. She was nervous to ask out her best friend, but Casey knew her intentions. They have been happily together ever since.

Fast forward 6 years and Casey was ready to propose. He proposed at sunset in Alameda surrounded by their closest family and friends. Karissa said “It was the perfect proposal”. They love enjoying the outdoors with their dog and traveling the world. I am so excited and happy for them as they plan their future together!
