Ari and Dan’s Unique Architectural Engagement Session

I have a really fun couples session coming your way! Arianna and Dan were in search of an architecturally unique location for their engagement photos. They suggested the Marin Civic Center because they were drawn to the colors and design. I am so glad they picked that location because the Marin Civic Center is absolutely gorgeous and I’d never had a session there before, making it a fun, creative challenge for me!


The Marin Civic Center is a beautiful building that was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. From the outside, the building features a blue roof and pink scalloped balconies. Inside you’ll find long, balconied halls lined with live plants and bright red, yellow, and pink walls. The wide hallway features a glass, barrel-vaulted ceiling that allows light to cast downward onto the open atriums. The architecture and design, bright colors, living flora, leading lines, and natural sunlight made for an extremely fun and creative photo session.


Not gonna lie, the first half of their session was super hot!! But Arianna and Dan were troopers and totally nailed it! (That’s one downside about the architecture and having the large skylights. It can heat up the building really quickly!) The fresh air was a huge relief when we finally headed outside to take a few photos on the balcony and in the open grass outside the building. I am also in love with the outfits they picked out for their session. Ari’s flowy skirt plus Dan’s untied bowtie was truly the cherry on top of this creative and playful session.


Arianna and Dan: Thank you so much for letting me capture such an important time in your lives. Congratulations again on your engagement! I hope you enjoy scrolling through some of my favorite images from your session!


Remember to leave these two some love in the comments! <3
