I really like San Francisco. I love beautiful, sunny San Francisco days. But I absolutely adore taking pictures of a beautiful couple against the back drop of this awesome city. Roedolf and Isabel are friends of ours from South Africa. They’ve lived in Bermuda for the last 5 years, but at this very moment they […]
