TJ & Lydia // Coffee Shop Engagement // Oakland, CA

These ladies are getting married on Friday! We’re thrilled for their day at the beautiful Sir Francis Drake Hotel and the Grace Cathedral in San Francisco. 

Michaela met TJ a while back as they were helping to open the restaurant Calavera in Oakland. Somehow seems like forever ago now…! Lydia was also in the picture at that time, and we are so happy they are finally getting married and that we get to be a part of their day.

We loved this spot for their engagement session in Oakland, where we styled a sweet little table set up with some of our close industry pals. TJ & Lydia are a gorgeous couple and this definitely came through in the photos from our session.

From Studio DBI –– “This shoot, A Table for Two, was inspired by Valentine’s Day. These two lovebirds had a romantic date at Blue Bottle coffee, beautiful flowers and animal pun Vday cards included.”

“The ladies met at a coffee shop, so a daytime date at this gorgeous location was a perfect choice. Sharing soy lattes and tasty treats on gorgeous Anthropologie china, they also exchanged gifts, include perfume by a San Francisco based company, Ineke. Lots of laughter and caffeine kept this session upbeat.”

Thank you to our fellow creatives!
