Berkeley Engagement Photography | Jennifer + Ken

A couple of weeks ago I flew north for a Berkeley engagement session with my good friends, Ken and Jennifer. Chris and I have known Ken for almost 7 years now, and when he started dating Jennifer a few years ago I was really excited because she and I have a lot in common. We have the same favorite band, we love crafting, we love owls, we even have similar features (though, clearly, she’s way more attractive).  She’s like my prettier, Cuban sister!

These two got engaged earlier this year and I was so honored when they asked me to be the photographer for their Berkeley wedding in October 2010. They flew me up to their neck of the woods for an engagement session and we pretty much spent the entire time cracking up. That’s just what we do when we’re together.

We started off at The Pub, which is a local bar that they like to go to. I had the idea of capturing some “slice of life” stuff where the two of them hang out at the places they like to frequent and I am just along for the ride, capturing what I see. I think it was pretty nice of me to allow them to enjoy a pint of good beer and a rousing game of Chutes & Ladders. I’m just cool like that.

After I got them good and drunk, we stopped at a few spots around town that were pretty and good for picture takin’.

The next two shots are numbers 417 and 418 of 5 million wherein Jennifer is totally cracking up because of something Ken said or did. This is why they are one of the best couples I know.

Oh, and the following shot on the left is another reason why they’re one of the best couples I know. ;) Rawr!

Finally, we ended the day with a cookie and yummy sodas at Saul’s Deli.
