Wood Line | Presidio Engagement Photography [Sohail + Ilma]

Presidio EngagementWe actually began Sohail and Ilma’s engagement session with formal photos to make the most of Ilma’s fresh blowout and professional makeup application. The cool deep tones of Ilma’s Navy blue gown and Sohail’s cool grey, tailored suit was a nice juxtaposition against the warm tones of the woods. Additionally, both Ilma and Sohail share a rich sense of style which can be seen in Ilma’s J. Crew statement necklace and the gorgeous princess cut Tacori engagement ring Sohail chose for Ilma. With the towering eucalyptus trees creating an arch of privacy, Sohail and Ilma created some grand landscape portraits to share with family and friends at their wedding during their Presidio engagement session in San Francisco.

Photography Tip: try to schedule your makeup trial on the same day as your engagement session to see how your makeup will look in photos. Exaggeration is really key to making sure the scene translates in the final image. This goes for makeup, styling, emotion, and moments.
