Pure, raw, and joyful happiness were beaming from these two on this special October day. Maria and John came up for the day from Carmel to have a session in San Francisco and one year from our session date will be their wedding in Ireland. I pretty much fell in love with these two's chemistry and their smiles - isn't Maria's smile infectious? We started at City Hall (I might be biased but I think San Francisco has the prettiest city halls I've ever seen) and then we headed to Golden Gate Park to play on the carousel and in the fall colors. I hope you guys had as much fun as I did, thanks for the special day! Oh and I would love to go to Ireland with you - yes please :).
