Engagement Photos at Golden Gate Park and Baker Beach with Christina and Brian

Christina and Brian are the cutest young couple. They have been sweethearts for a long time already and really wanted to have a San Francisco engagement session. We photographed them in Golden Gate Park near the Music Consourse, Shakespeare’s Garden, and Japanese Tea Garden. Then we also shot at The Palace of Fine Arts and Baker Beach. We had a beautiful day and an even more beautiful couple.

Golden Gate Park – Japanese Tea Garden – San Francisco Engagement Photos with Katie & Edward

As a San Francisco Wedding Photographer, I get to shoot in some fantastic places. Golden Gate Park is certainly one of my favorites. Katie and Edward had their engagement photography session in the park last week. We had a beautiful day and made the most of the Japanese Tea Garden, The Music Concourse and Shakespear’s Garden.

This first shot is in the Japanese Tea Garden by the little Zen Garden area.

The Music Concourse is a really cool area of the park.  There is a big stage flanked by pillars, lots of benches for sitting to watch performances and two beautiful fountains.

Shakespear’s Garden is next to the Music Concourse and has a quaint little garden area seen below.

San Francisco Engagement Photos – Ben and William

I recently had the honor of shooting the engagement photo session for my fabulous friends Ben and William.  We had a great time bouncing around these great locations in San Francisco on a gorgeous autumn day.

We started at Stern Grove where we had the redwood forest to ourselves.  What a great spot!

Check out these rings!  The gears actually spin inside the rings. This is probably a lot easier to agree on when you’re both guys 🙂

After Golden Gate Park, we went to the Epic Roasthouse for dinner and then shot some more on The Embarcadero near the Bay Bridge and Ferry Building.

 Thank you, Ben and William for making this so much fun.  Can’t wait for the wedding next year!
