Nausheen, a marketer from San Jose, and Husam, a consultant from Chicago, were introduced to each other by a mutual friend. They first met in San Francisco and spent countless weekends exploring the city together — which is why they chose San Francisco staples for their engagement shoot locations. They wanted a rustic backdrop focusing on the natural beauty of San Francisco so they picked the redwoods of the Presidio (shoutout to Micaela for finding a hidden gem in the middle of the Presidio). The Shakespeare Garden in Golden Gate Park was a top pick, as well, because it was a bright and versatile location and it also reminded Nausheen of the rose garden in San Jose where Husam proposed. Despite the strong and cold San Francisco wind they managed to have an amazing time during their shoot.
