san jose engagement | derik & sarah

these two were ready with beach cruisers, water bottles and a trailer full of fun props. we spent the session pedaling around alexander lake park in san jose while the sun played a constant game of peek-a-boo with us. the evening ended with them treating me to dinner out while they shared a quite humorous and sweet story of their long romance. when sarah was 16, she fell in love with her brother’s friend, derik. and now she is marrying the guy! and guess what? i get to photograph it!

sarah & derik, thank you for buying me red robin and treating me to such a lovely evening in your hood!
