Oakland, San Francisco California Adventure Couple Session Anniversary

Fun fact about the Dohan’s: they totally geek out over Halloween! Patrick actually took the very first picture below and I had to share a little spooky spirit for them as the holiday approaches. Giant size candy bars are not the only reason Patrick and Erin have trick-or-treaters swarming their house! Their good friend Hannah Chamberlain with Spirited LA may or may not pass out her special potion to adults. But hey, that’s just a rumor. You’ll have to visit yourself to see. If you are wondering what marriage is going to be like, the Dohan’s set the bar high. We stayed up until 4 a.m. playing board games while we listened to Lianne La Havas and St. Paul on the record player. If you haven’t heard of Lianne hit that play button below and set the mood while scrolling through their anniversary session! This particular song is actually from their first dance.

We wanted to make their anniversary session a celebration so we hit up a few places around Oakland, California to keep things interesting. Erin’s favorite part of the night was getting to hand out balloons to the little kids and Patrick obviously was digging the food trucks. Anniversary sessions might be one of my favorite types of couple shoots ever. After all the hype of the wedding has passed and real life has set in you can reflect on where you were and where you are now. Even if it’s only been a year! Time is fleeting and ever changing. I know they had so much fun taking getting ready photos in their home and getting lost in the city on a date night together. Enjoy!
