I absolutely love what I do, but sometimes you fall into a creative rut or a safe zone of shooting. That's when it's important to switch things up a bit and shoot something totally different. I met Hannah & Jason who had just the thing. They met while bartending in Oakland, and wanted their photos to really represent who they are. They decided to throw a small get together with some of their closest friends at this incredible loft in Oakland and turn that into their engagement session.

I love when couples add personal touches to a shoot or a wedding, it really makes it uniquely theirs. We had planned to do an outdoor portion of the shoot right before their gathering, unfortunately it was pouring rain the whole day. Luckily we were able to reschedule the second half of their shoot (stay tuned for that blog post coming soon!) and let me just say it doesn't disappoint.

Here's a glimpse into Hannah & Jason's speakeasy themed engagement shoot, where they invited their friends to come mix a drink if they please and just have a good time.
