I love getting to spend time with my couples before their wedding – the best way to do that is by getting to “practice” and get to know each other through an engagement session! That’s why it’s the very first thing we schedule after couples book! Part of that process is choosing *the best* of the best San Francisco engagement photo locations to shoot at – one that reflects the couple, who they are, what they like to do.
If you’re from Northern California, then you know that the San Francisco Bay Area is the crowning jewel for engagement photos. There is so much variety in terms of architecture, nature and overall feel. There are everything from iconic San Francisco landmarks to hidden gems within SF’s countless neighborhoods. Even with the number of times I’ve spent walking around the city, I love that there is always more to discover. My hope is that this blog post helps Bay Area couples choose their perfect spot – you’ll find photos from engagement sessions I’ve shot and engagement locations we’d love to explore in the future!

For those of you who are new around here, in addition to being an Austin wedding photographer, I’ve also transitioned to be a Bay Area wedding photographer too! I’ve been photographing weddings and portraits in Texas since 2012, so I’m excited to be able to bring a fresh approach to weddings in Northern California beginning Spring 2019. I plan on splitting my time between both places, so don’t worry Texas, you’ll be still be seeing me.
