Fun Preppy Shoot in San Francisco

Fun Preppy Shoot in San Francisco

I seriously have so much to share about my recent girls trip to SF and I promise I’ll do a travel guide soon but I just couldn’t wait any longer to share one of the highlights of our trip – a fun, preppy, vintage shoot in SF’s Presidio with Laura Monfredini, of eLLe PHOTOGRAPHY. Hope you enjoy and I think this theme of a friend shoot would be so fun and fab to do with your bridesmaids!

Laura and I met via e-mail a few years ago when she started submitting her gorgeous work – our conversations always strayed from work into fun chatter (I still get the biggest smile when I see an e-mail from Laura in my inbox!) and we quickly discovered some fun similarities (our shared love of NoLA, Hitchcock horror, European travels and Chloe Sevigny – btw, Laura could be Chloe’s undiscovered twin!). When I told Laura I’d be swinging by SF with a friend of mine, she had the brilliant suggestion of doing an impromptu portrait session with us. Laura is currently introducing portraits to her photography line and my friend, T, and I loved being her guinea pigs!

 We decided to meet up at the Presidio Social Club for a little photo sesh before dinner. After a great dinner and even better conversation, Laura took us on a night tour of her lovely city and we ended the evening with a nightcap at the Cliff House. Needless to say, we all had a ball goofing off and snapping photos so thank you, Laura, for a most wonderful last night in your lovely city by the bay! xo.

Such fun memories. And big thanks one last time to Laura for everything. I hope we get the chance to collaborate again sometime soon! xx.
