Taking pictures near/during sunset is among the top of my list of favorite things to do, primarily because the finished products never cease to disappoint. This time around, on a chilly Friday evening in Sacramento (yes -- mid-70's is "chilly" in Sacramento), I had the honor of taking Crystal and Steven's engagement photos!
Despite a rigorous 3 hour commute (which was originally supposed to take no longer than 2 hours) that resulted from Bay Bridge construction in San Francisco followed by other numerous traffic incidents on I-80, everything was justified right as I stepped out of my car. Parked along Sacramento's Capitol park, Crystal, Steven, and I were immediately greeted with beautiful golden light and immediately transitioned into taking photos. To finish off the shoot, we took advantage of the soft light that the setting sun brought at none other than old-town Sacramento, where both rustic and modern-styled buildings meshed truly well. Crystal and Steven were awesome, and it was clear how much love they had for each other simply by taking their engagement photos. This only makes me more excited for the coming year, where I'll have the pleasure of photographing their wedding!
