I began an internet hunt for an engagment photographer who not only met our location requirements - we wanted to be able to take pics in several locations across the city - but who also met our budget. All I have to say is thank god for craigslist! I was able to find a very talented young photographer by the name of Gabriel Beszeda, who was trying to make a transition from landscape photography to wedding/engagement photography and had a special deal advertised. We communicated back and forth through email, and we finally met one lunch time at my workplace (so nice of him to do) so that he could show me some of his work and discuss our needs.
We arranged our shoot to be on Valentine's Day 2008, which was a weekend Mr. Milk would be in SF. We had a wonderful day taking pictures followed by dinner at Palomino's. Who knew that being models for a day would be so tiring! We took photos in 3 different locations around the city and here is a sample for you to see.
