Ayanna, Mike, and their entourage – Briahn, Jasmine, and Michaela – met me at Lake Merritt on a overcast and cold evening to do their engagement pictures. One thing I have learned about the Bay Area is that you can always trust the weather to be unpredictable. We meandered around the Lake, stopping at spots here and there to take pictures. Ayanna and Mike are Oakland natives, which makes me smile because it seems like there are so few people that I know that actually can say they are from the Bay Area. We had a great time. Here are some pictures from the engagement session. Wedding pictures to follow shortly. Enjoy!
