Lianna and Andrew's Rowboat Couple Session

Lianna and Andrew’s Rowboat Couple Session Part 1


Dec 14, 2022

Lianna and I met in a photography group. She’s also an amazing photographer, so I couldn’t help but grin ear to ear at her couple portrait session with her husband-to-be, Andrew! This rowboat couple session was a blast!

We went to Golden Gate Park, which has a small lake. Stow Lake was just the place to showcase Lianna and Andrew’s relationship.

I know what you’re thinking: Stow Lake? Isn’t that manmade? There are definitely prettier areas in San Francisco, however, pulling in these amazing florals by Acme Floral Co and a gorgeous rowboat rental from Stow Lake Boat Rentals, we were able to create a magical session. 

And the major plus—this lake wasn’t crowded like other popular locations would be! Lianna and Andrew totally embraced the idea. I’ve always wanted to do a little mermaid kiss-the-girl/notebook-style romantic session, and this was just the perfect way to do it!

We pulled in some amazing vendors to help bring this session to life. Huge shoutout to Amber Lester, who did hair and makeup. I can’t tell you enough how awesome it was to work with her. She was so professional and nice, and I highly recommend her!

The dresses came from Johnny Was and Maya Deluxe. They were awesome quality and gave us the exact look that we were looking for! Lianna was so comfortable, and that definitely helped us get the shots.

And I just have to take a moment to gush about these gorgeous shoes, which we found at White Mountain Shoes! They are so classy and stylish, and totally complete the outfit. 

We all had a blast incorporating all of these elements for an out-of-this-world engagement session. With just a little bit of planning magic, we transformed Stow Lake into a storybook.

Lianna and Andrew were awesome models. It was so much fun to meet a local photographer! Of course, we bonded almost immediately over our shared interests, and it was so great to get to know her. 

Overall, this rowboat couple session at Stow Lake was a dream come true. I just know you two love these photos just as much as I do! You two are so gorgeous inside and out. I’m so happy that I got the opportunity to document your love story!
