Bay Area Engagement Session Locations - Palace of the Arts, Crissy Field, Sutro Baths, and More...

Updated: Mar 10, 2022

Where can you go for your engagement session? Visiting the Bay Area is always a lot of fun. It always comes in waves. Whether from referrals or chance meetings with people, we get the opportunity to capture in this beautiful area in California. There are countless locations in this huge city and surrounding cities and look forward to finding many more in the future.

Erin and Kyle


Palace of the Arts, San Francisco

3601 Lyon Street, San Francisco, CA 91423

Wow! It seems like yesterday I shot this couple. It is very common to travel to 2-3 locations in the Bay Area and it is always so much fun. When couples are being playful with each other it really brings out their personalities. Make sure to be yourself ultimately.

Crissy Field and Downtown San Francisco

1199 E Beach, San Francisco, CA 94129

More fun locations for Erin and Kyle. The city has boundless places to shoot. The hard part is not being hit by traffic, whether it is a car or pedestrians. Crissy Field provides a great location with views of the Golden Gate Bridge from the North Shore.

Nicole and Steven


Cliff House and Sutro Baths

North Ocean Beach

Once a grand display of late 1800's architecture, the baths were a place for anyone to come for a visit and swim. Filled with ocean water, the baths have had as many as 7 different pools with various temperatures for your swimming pleasure. All that remains today is the concrete foundations as time, sea, and fires have destroyed all that once was a place of pride in the city. Today, it is visited by thousands daily as a part of many areas to see. Visit the Golden Gate Bridge and its amazing surrounding views.

Such a great, fun couple. See the celebration at their wedding in Pleasanton, CA at The Palm Event Center.

Kelly and William


Legion of Honor Museum

Lincoln Park

100 34th Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94121

As I recall, in Los Angeles, the weather was in the mid 90's on this day and I left to capture Kelly and William's engagement session.. Well, it's always a good idea to look where you are going and not where you have been. That could not have been more true on this day when I arrived it, the temperature was in the mid 60's. Once we went to the next location, I was met with temperatures in the low 50's with a very brisk wind. Thankfully, it was all made up when they asked me join them in Hawaii for their wedding day! I really can't wait to get back to Hawaii to capture another couple!
