When we went to San Francisco for my birthday, Meg Tsang got in touch with us to shoot some family portraits. Only we didn’t come with the kids, so we turned it into a “love shoot” instead. I was so excited to get some nice pictures of Ben and me together. Meg did my friend Ica’s engagement shoot, so I already knew what she would come up with would be good. For sure.

Now, despite having a blog and sometimes doing outfit posts of sorts, I am so not natural in front of the camera. I feel awkward trying to pose and all I can really do is smile, so that’s what I do, but I think Ben’s always just a natural. Meg was so great because she had these little tips and tricks to get us to interact and made it not so awkward to be in front of the camera. I appreciated those little tricks because I totally need direction in front of the camera. We had such a great time with Meg and she got all these wonderful shots (and more, but I didn’t want to overload you) in just one hour! And how gorgeous is that location that Meg picked out?! It felt so otherworldly!

I am so in love with all her pictures. I think she totally captured how I look at Ben. I always look at Ben with so much googly eyes because he really makes me googly eyed in a very good way. Just looking at these pictures makes my heart all a flutter on how thankful I am that God placed Ben and me together. Ben is truly such a sweetheart and so selfless. He dedicates so much of himself to me and his little girls and I think everything he does is so darn sexy. He’s not perfect (though pretty close!), but I see how God is shaping and growing him to become an even more godly man and leader for our family. We’re both learning everyday what it means to include God in our marriage and I’m so thankful to be one flesh with this man.

Before I make all of you gag because I really can go on and on about Ben forever, I’ll stop now. All this to say, I love Ben a whole heck of a lot!

Thank youΒ MegΒ for these beautiful captures! Meg is based out of San Francisco, but she does travel (and travels often), so if you’re in need of a photographer, check her out!

  • oh these are beautiful!
    my hubby and i are planning to do a “love shoot” this summer after 11 years of marriage (and 4 kids!). our wedding pics are kinda boring and we look like babies (because we were!) and since then all of our pictures have involved me being pregnant or having lots of babies with us. i’m super excited to do some new pics, especially after seeing yours!

  • Tanie says:

    These pictures are wonderful, the love is so evident on both your faces & you look so beautiful.

  • Keri-Anne says:

    Holy Moly!! these are so beautiful. I especially love the last two. you are both such beauties!

    I really need to get some pictures of me and my husband. We just don’t have any really together like this as i hate being in front of the camera. x

  • These pix are AMAZING! Love the light and the setting and you two look fabulous ~ I love your beautiful smile, you have one of the happiest and real smiles I’ve ever seen, and whenever I see it shining on your blog, it just warms my heart!

  • Bethany says:

    These are so wonderful!!! You are very photogenic! I think it’s so great that you two got to go away by yourselves for a bit– and San Francisco– no greater place to do that than there! I can tell you after 20 years of being married, it never gets boring– I am way more in love with Craig now than I ever was! Happy Valentine’s Day!!! xoxo

    Wow! Gorgeous!

  • eskimo*rose says:

    Beautiful photos, I’m always behind the lens, so we have not ‘love shots’ of us πŸ™

  • kristin says:

    GORGEOUS photos! Wow, really breathtaking. Be sure to print these! I’m terrible at printing digital photos…

  • Suzanne says:

    Beautiful and Happy Love Day to you and yours as well!

  • Tabitha says:

  • Lisa says:

    Amazing x

  • jah says:

    i am terrible in front of the camera too.

    you guys look great

  • Jessica G. says:

    Beautiful pictures!

  • Jasmine says:

    Absolutely amazing photos! Shame I can’t ship Meg off to Australia so she can do my wedding photos, ha!

    Have a lovely day πŸ™‚

  • Deirdre says:

    You two are just the sweetest. Happy heart day!

  • Joy says:

    Love. Lovelove. LOVE! Oh my, these are gorgeous! What a pretty couple, pretty light, and pretty location! Happy Valentine’s Day πŸ™‚

  • jane says:


    (and you can implement those tips when it’s time for… the fab five. haha! πŸ˜‰ maybe i should exclude the three? haha!)

    hope you’re well and can’t wait to have dinner sometime soon, yes?!

  • Morgane says:

    You are lovely!

  • Maddie says:

    Aww how cute! <3

  • Wow, these pictures are gorgeous! You two are such a sweet couple. And the location for this shoot – I’m just in awe of how beautiful it is. I’m hoping I can convince my [photographer] husband to get love shots done one day. We absolutely love our wedding photos, but we never did any engagement photos or anything in regular clothes. Thankfully, he’s got plenty of photographer friends. Always good to have, aren’t they? Yours did such a fantastic job.

  • I think that is wonderful how you look at Ben. I already know many married couples who seem to not really care much for one another and seem to just go day by day or feel unromantic about their husbands and it makes me so sad because I have been obsessed with my husband since I met him in high school and we’re really sappy and stare all the time at each other and I don’t understand why other couples don’t seem to do that too. I have known him for 13 years and my obsession only gets worse by the year! I’m so thankful to God to know that He has bound so many couples together in love and that our eyes are to reflect His own in our love for others and that includes our spouse!

    THe photos here are beautiful and I enjoyed looking at them and going, “AW!!!!” with each thing you wrote about Ben!

  • Kiki says:

    These photos are stunning! I love the sunshine in these photos. Meg definitely captured your love for one another perfectly! You two are such a good looking couple. πŸ™‚

  • melody says:

    ohmygosh, these are so pretty ruby!! totally captures your and ben’s personalities, i love it, and the photos are so beautiful!

  • Deanna says:

    Quirky, nostalgic, and soulful…you two!

  • Owow!! Look at you hotties!

    I’m really lovin’ the love.

  • Bon Bon says:

    That’s a whole lotta love right there! lovelovelove! xoxo

  • Halima says:

    Beautiful! You both look so happy… πŸ™‚

  • These pictures are stunning and the both of you look so in love! I can’t remember the last time I had a nice photo taken with my husband! Our photo folders are now mainly of the kids. Perhaps when my hair grows back (from postpartum hair loss!) I shall do a photo shoot with him! πŸ™‚ thanks for the inspiration.

  • Tanya says:

    The cutest pictures ever!! Love the location, the light, and most of all, you guys! I love all the things you two stand for–family, God, a loving relationship, and you look hot doing it…I hope someday we can meet in real life. πŸ™‚

  • Ana says:

    These pictures are so beautiful!! You guys are such a sweet and cute couple!!

  • Rebecca says:

    So so pretty and a beautifully written post. Thank you. Your dress too is beautiful is it vintage or can I snap one up somewhere?

  • steph says:

    oh my goodness gracious…
    MY heart went all a pitter patter looking at these photos, and reading your words.
    you guys are too adorable!
    it’s so lovely to see you two alone without your girlies…
    i bet when you were strolling the streets in san fran that the majority of people would be shocked to know you had 4 girls at home!
    i love that!
    and i love that you’re keeping the love alive…
    and trusting God and putting Him center in your life.
    so refreshing… especially that you talk about your faith so openly on your blog.
    love that ruby!
    this is a great and sweet post!

  • Amy says:
