Niccolina and Ryan’s Engagement at Ulistac Natural Area

Amongst the concrete jungle of the Bay Area, there are still pockets of beautiful nature, golden fields and vibrant greenery. I’m so happy Niccolina and Ryan suggested we shoot at Ulistac Natural Area in Santa Clara since I’ve never had the chance to really explore that part of the city before.  I love how I’ve lived in this area my whole life and still have so many new places to seek out and photograph!  Ryan, a native New Yorker, and Niccolina, originally from the Bay Area herself, live just down the street from this little gem and decided it was a quiet, secluded spot we could use to document their love and life together. They are such a sweet couple and I’m looking forward to shooting their wedding in September at the gorgeous Stanford Memorial Church!
