A gorgeous couple on a gorgeous evening up at Mt. Tamalpais! All the heart eyes needed for this post! Tanvi’s from Sacramento and Animish is from the UK and they met on an app while both living in the Bay Area… but wait, the story doesn’t end there! They were each invited to their mutual friend’s wedding before meeting on the app… so they would have met and fallen in love then, right!? Well, they ended up going together as a couple when it came time for that wedding! And, crazy enough, there’s even more to this amazing story! Both Tanvi’s grandparents and Animish’s grandparents are from *the same* small town in the South of India and are FRIENDS… so their grandparents would have definitely made this relationship happen too, right!? Basically what we’re learning here is that these two were always meant to find each other and they win for having the cutest love story you can possibly have. 🙂
With Animish being from the UK, they chose to have Mt. Tam be their backdrop for their engagement session to show off scenery that Animish had growing up in his backyard. It was fun to hear him chime in about each location reminding him of home whether we were in the forest or overlooking Mt. Tam’s hills.
We ended the shoot all shivering a bit and Tanvi and Animish started jumping for warmth with the stunning clouded backdrop we had during blue hour and it made for some of my most favorite shots I’ve taken at an engagement session… you’ll find those at the bottom of the post.
Thanks for the best time, Tanvi and Animish!!! I LOVED working with you two and getting our creative juices going all together was super special for me. 🙂
I love how Mt. Tam is always different each sunset.. here are a couple of shoots I did up there last year: Kelly + Scott and Erin + Mike. Take a look if you’re inspired by Mt. Tam’s amazing beauty at sunset. 🙂
