Oakland Engagement Session

I had the best time with these two.  Celeste and Jon had access to the old American Steel building in West Oakland.  Celeste and Jon and getting married at Chileno Valley Ranch in June.  It will be rolling hills, old barns, blooming flowers, etc. so this was a coll contrast to that setting.

I used to live a few blocks away and have always been dying to check it out.  It’s currently used a an artist space -lots of burning man stuff hanging around, people listening to music, drinking beers, spray painting things, etc.  I loved it.

There were so many different looks to this shoot so this post is pretty image heavy!   Have fun!
