Engagement sessions are an amazing way to memorialise a chapter in your life that is about to end. They are the perfect way to practice in front of the camera before your wedding day, to meet your photographer, and to create something memorable. San Francisco Wedding photographer RADOSTINA PHOTOGRAPHY encourages all her couples to bring a little piece of them into their engagement session photoshoot. For Janell and Doug, the wedding planning process was really difficult since they had to postpone their wedding day four times. This beautiful couple from Los Angeles selected SWITZER FARM as their wedding venue and they were so impressed by the epic Mendocino scenery that they named their own puppy - Switzer. And for them, the location is not only insanely beautiful but also combines the beautiful redwoods, which Doug loves so much, with Janell's love for the ocean.

Radostina tells us, "Together with Anna from SEVA DESIGN, we created this little picnic experience with florals, chocolate, and champagne, so Janell and Doug would feel more comfortable and relaxed, before the engagement session. We then witnessed the most spectacular sunset over the Pacific Ocean."
