Lisa + Nick | Oakland | Downtown Engagement

And just like that, in one fell swoop, on Lisa and Nick’s engagement session, we hit up several of my favorite Oakland spots. We started out with some tasty beverages at the Commonwealth Cafe and Public House on Telegraph. If you haven’t been there for coffee, yummy eats, a drink, or to watch a soccer game – you are missing out. This place has it all. and since I am a sucker for a place that serves good food and drink and has great decor, we stopped off at Flora next. Cool wall paper and laughter was the theme of this shoot. From Flora we stopped at the Paramount Theater, but found it to be uninspiring during the daylight hours and quickly moved on to our final destination – the Port of Oakland. Lisa and Nick were super easy going and up for a good adventure, and we braved the winds for a beautiful view of the bay and the container loaders. I had a great time with Lisa and Nick talking about work, fun, kids, and the rest of it. I should also mention that their delightful friend, Sheila, came along for the ride, and stepped in as lighting assistant at the Port. Here are some pictures. Enjoy!
