San Francisco, but then I took it back to Taipei with me!
These are the engagement photos that Ron and I took right before our wedding in May. We'd been engaged since December 2006 and took Taiwanese engagement photos (which were quite a cultural experience, by the way, and deserve their own post), but we wanted more "American-style" pics, too. Our wedding photographer, Cooper Carras, offered a complimentary engagement photo session, so of course we jumped at the opportunity.
I wore a vintage 1950s dress and we chose locations around San Francisco that were featured in the film "Vertigo." I love that dress, but it's so fragile I can only take it out for special occasions. One of the things that I like about it is that it has a peony print; peonies are a frequent motif in Chinese and Taiwanese art and fabrics. My pumps are from one of those clearance shoe outlet stores and I've had them since college. I bought them even though they were the worst shoes for running around campus because I like the mid-century retro flair they have to them. My husband doesn't have any vintage on him, but I think he looks very handsome, nonetheless.
