Barbara and Jonathan’s Lake Merritt engagement photography by Apollo Fotografie
We had such a fun time shooting Barbara and Jonathan’s Lake Merritt engagement photography! Not only were they a blast to be around, but their joy and excitement really came through in the photos as well :). Lake Merritt is one of our favorite engagement session locations. Whether the sun is shining, or the clouds are lingering, the lake in front of the city is a beautiful backdrop. We appreciated that Barbara and Jonathan really made it their own! Their photographs came out so wonderfully and we couldn’t have been more excited to be spending the day with the happy couple. After taking some photos in front of the lake, we moseyed on over to the grand lake theater. The bright colors of the theater complimented Barbara’s necklace as well as the couple’s tattoos! It was a such a vibrant and joyous scene, allowing their love to shine bright! We knew Barbara and Jonathan were a couple after our own heart when they decided to finish their shoot at a local Chinese restaurant. Yum! We shot over to Shan Dong, a Mandarin restaurant nearby. The food smelled amazing, and Barbara and Jonathan couldn’t wait to dig in! The photos we took at the table were funny and sweet. We love it when couples can bond over a common interest, and we especially love it when that interest is FOOD :)! They slurped up their noodles and enjoyed an amazing meal together. We feel so lucky to have been able to capture their love in these photographs, and we are so excited for their big day!
