Real Couples: Sarah & Alex's San Francisco Engagement Shoot

We have a fun engagement shoot to share with you today that has a fashionable urban vibe to it, with a bit of a nod to the literary arts.  Sarah & Alex have a timeless look to them as you will soon see, which, in my opinion, speaks to many eras, in the equally timeless city of San Francisco.  

When Lydia, with Lydia Chen Fotography, submitted this couple's shoot, she did share this tid bit about the couple:

Sarah and Alex are two stylish love birds who are also both aspiring writers. The one on-going theme in Sarah and Alex's lives has always been literature. So much so that, for Alex's birthday one year, Sarah got him a vintage-style typewriter as a birthday present. We decided to showcase Sarah and Alex's love for literature and fashion for their engagement session.

Behold Sarah & Alex's San Francisco shoot, beautifully captured by Lydia Chen Fotography!

Such a charming session for the two literary love birds! They look like they were in their element and really enjoyed themselves, which is what engagement shoots should be all about.  Finding the right photog to capture the true essence of a couple is so important, and Lydia Chen Fotography delivered so well.  

I love the use of books and the vintage typewriter as props, they set the tone for their love of literature.  My favorite image from the session is this last one seen here, with the two on the vespa.  It looks like it was taken in the 70's, which is an example of this couple's timeless look.  

Many thanks to Lydia Chen Fotography for submitting your work to us!
