An Engagement Session all over San Francisco

Engagement

Last Friday Cole proposed to Caroline atop Mt. Tam and I got to be there to capture it. It was so beautifully set up.

On Saturday, Cole, Caroline, and I traveled all over San Francisco for a full-day engagement session hitting up some of San Francisco’s most beautiful spots. And while Friday was almost sweltering, Saturday’s weather was absolutely perfect. Not too warm, not too cold, bright blue sky with fluffy white clouds. Oh, it couldn’t have been better!

Here are some of the highlights of our day…

We started around Union Square and despite being called “scoundrels” (them) and “wench” (me) by one of the locals, it was a good start to the day.



Onwards to Golden Gate Park’s DeYoung Museum and Botanical Garden.



And we eventually found our way to Stow Lake, though I certainly took them on the scenic route. I introduced them to San Francisco’s It’s Its too!


We went to Fisherman’s Wharf for some famous bread bowl and clam chowder at Boudin’s and then strolled over to Pier 39 to check out the sea lions and the bay.



We then went back to Nob Hill to their hotel, the Fairmont, for a change of clothes and some shots around the hotel and Grace Cathedral.


I took them to one of my favorite little spots in the city – a little grove of trees that lets in the most amazing light during golden hour.


We ended our day at Baker Beach around sunset.




Phew! It was such a wonderful day and I can’t wait to hear all about their wedding in Texas this winter.

Caroline and Cole, thank you so much for letting me be a part of your trip out to San Francisco!
