TJ and Elizabeth | San Francisco Engagement Photographer

TJ and Elizabeth are die hard Gaints fans! During the season you will see them at almost every game. Traveling two hours down and two hours back from Folsom is dedication! A few weeks ago I spent the afternoon with them in the city documenting their engagement session and BOY did we have an epic time. Of course we had to start at AT&T Park!

TJ, what do you LOVE about Liz? 

“She is one of the most beautiful-caring individuals who would do anything for her friends, family or animals. She is my best friend and we always have the best time together.”


Tell us about how TJ proposed…

“The proposal was the most magical-fairy tale day for the two of us. TJ had an entire day in napa planned, which was a complete surprise to me! We hadn’t been to Napa together as a couple and I thought we were going to visit a few wineries…no big deal.  He kept saying we have to be at this certain breakfast place early or we wouldn’t get it (and I actually believed him). We pulled up to a church and then I became really nervous. Next to the church was a beautiful car and a driver standing outside. I was so taken back, but honestly I didn’t put too much thought into it because he is known for doing sweet things like this for me. We went to two different wineries that day that were amazing with private tastings and then at the last winery, Sterling Vineyards, we road their gondola to the top of Napa Valley! I was so fascinated by the view and taking tons of pictures that he had to catch my attention to the fact that he was proposing! Right there at the top of the valley TJ pulled out the most beautiful ring and asked me to marry him. It was amazing! It was definitely hard to enjoy the wine tasting after that, it was all smiles and tears of joy.”

Liz, what do you LOVE about TJ?

“Everyday he wakes up and strives to do his best and does everything to make me the happiest girl alive! He is my biggest supporter and just wants the best for our family. He’s goofy, hard working and loves me to no end. There isn’t much I don’t love about him :).”

What are you both looking forward to the most during the celebration of your wedding?

 “Oh that is easy! Just spending time with our friends and family. Anytime with them is a good time and something we love! Of course we are looking forward to walking down the aisle and saying “I DO” that will be the most amazing moment!”

A week later we met up again for a little mini session with the puppies, Jake and Abby in Apple Hill.

What does a perfect day together look like?

Anything to do with our little babies, Jake and Abby. Or playing in our favorite city, San Francisco. We always have fun when were together!”

Silly question: If you were stranded on an island with each other what one comfort item would you want with you?

Elizabeth –  “I would have to have our puppies!!
 T.J. – “Puppies!”


TJ and Liz, I have had so much fun getting to know you both along with the pups! I’m looking forward to your beautiful wedding in Napa next September. Blessings!
