Jane + Visnu: A Quirky Engagement Session

Jane and Visnu decided to let us run wild with ideas for their engagement shoot in San Francisco! After over two years of dating, they are getting married next year in Thailand! Jane is already one of our favorite people, so she was game for anything we could throw at her! Jane happens to be a makeup artist and hairstylist extraordinaire out of San Francisco, and she founded The Glamorist, with a fabulous instagram-filled blog featuring pictures of inspiration, daily life, and her little Maltese Coco!

Doesn’t everyone have a spirit animal? We wanted to see their wilder side at this foggy beach shoot, so we rustled up some animal masks to aid in adding a little quirk to their session. They also brought along Coco, for us to fawn over – isn’t he just the cutest little fluff of puppy? We had to try not to take him home…

We keep telling Jane she’s absolutely gorgeous – I think Visnu agrees with us! It’s no wonder Jane’s makeup is completely flawless – she’s used to glamming people up for the camera!

They wanted to sneak some pictures in of their adorable puppy – how could we not? He brought some of his own swagger to the shoot!

That’s one posh puppy! Even furry friends need a little bling in a shoot.

We picked the perfect pair of goofs for our animal masks! They dug the idea of prancing around in a field, acting out the romance that could never be between a bespectacled giraffe and luxuriously maned cat.

Little known secret: Even though Coco is Jane’s dog, Visnu is the new favorite…

As much as we love them in their masks, we love their sweet expressions – you can’t see giddy smiles when they’re covered up!
