san francisco photo shoot:

August 12, 2010

aw, i love taking pictures with nicholas. when we went up for renegade sf, our photographer mentioned he was going to be up there as well so we thought a photo shoot would be so fun in san francisco! we shot at the botanical gardens, it was a lot of fun and christian cruz is legit! he is one of the nicest guys around and he has a great eye for photography. i love how he captured and framed us amongst the nature and trees. so we tried to coordinate our colors for our outfits: grey, white, and deep yellow, my favorites! doesn't nick look handsome?

christian also posted some different photos from the
shoot at his blog so be sure to head over there :)nicholas + danni:
