Best Bay Area Engagement Photo Locations

As you start to plan for your engagement photos, you will need to start brainstorming about location ideas. I do my best to create unique engagement sessions that tell your love story, rather than just taking pretty pictures against a pretty location. That could mean “your spot” with a view of the city, your favorite pizza joint, or even just a walk around your neighborhood! 

I can almost guarantee that when you look back on these photos in 50 years, you’ll have a deeper connection to them than a photo of the two of you in front of the Golden Gate Bridge. (I’m not hating on the bridge – just sayin’). I’d love to capture your relationship right at this point in time so you can cherish this exciting season of your engagement forever.

If you can’t think of anywhere specific that you would like to shoot, I can help you decide on a location! Below you’ll find a list of my favorite photo spots for engagement photos in the Bay Area all categorized by the vibe of the location. Hope this helps spark a great idea for you!
