Planning Resources

Are you visiting San Francisco soon or maybe even right now!? San Francisco is my favorite city in the whole world! And yes, I know that is a bold statement and yes that statement is also biased but I mean what is there not to love. Between the Golden Gate Bridge, the endless foodie spots, the beach, the architecture and beautiful homes there’s literally something for everyone. So, here are 5 romantic things to do in San Francisco while your visiting the city.

Romantic Things to Do in San Francisco

1. Eat your way through Pier 39 and Fisherman’s Wharf

Fisherman’s Wharf and Pier 39 are 100% tourist traps and yet I still love them nonetheless. Stopping here is literally a must; you didn’t really visit San Francisco if you don’t. Be sure to lazily walk from store to store wandering throughout Pier 39 being tempted to pick up the cutest trinkets and unique gifts. Some of my favorites are the crazy sock shop and the lefty store. and be sure to grab light snack from Trish’s Donuts. My mouth is watering just thinking about them. 🤤

Then walk down to Fisherman’s wharf stopping to see the street performers along the way. And then you MUST get lunch or dinner at Boudin’s. Only place in the world to get some authentic sourdough bread. And honestly since you’re already there walk down a little to Gbriadelhi square for a sundae you won’t regret it! This is such a fun romantic thing to do in San Francisco that can easily transport you back to visiting your local fair but with sea lions and donuts.

2. Visit the Conservatory of Flowers

The Conservatory of Flowers is located in Golden Gate Park, which can be a trek depending on what part of the city you’re staying in. I would recommend renting a bike, scooters, catching the bus or an uber and just exploring the park itself. Just over 1,000 acres Golden Gate Park is a perfect place to see a little bit of everything. You can get some exercise by going on a jog or visit the Academy of Sciences or the De Young museum. But, you can’t miss going to the Conservatory of Flowers. Tickets are $10 unless you go on the first Tuesday of the month. Walkthrough this beautiful greenhouse and get a reprise from the harsh SF winds.

3. Picnic at the Palace of Fine Arts

Visiting the Palace of Fine Art will almost transport you to a different city entirely. Though this venue can get a bit crowded on weekends there’s always lots of space in the grass area to make a picnic and just enjoy the view. You’re sure to be entertained by people watching, walking the grounds, enjoying a small picnic, or looking at the turtles and other wildlife swimming throughout the pond. There’s just something about this place that’s just so peaceful and romantic.

4. Morning walk along Baker Beach

Walking along the beach is one of the most romantic things to do in San Francisco. Baker beach has one of my favorite views of the Golden Gate bridge. Sunrise at Baker Beach is full of colors you will never forget. Finding parking especially in the morning is typically easy. It can get a little chilly and breezy so be sure to bring a jacket and blanket and take a stroll long the beach and then snuggle up and watch the sunrise over the Golden Gate Bridge.

5. Photoshoot at the Sutro Baths

I love getting to visit the Sutro Baths. I feel like I always find something new to explore that I didn’t get to the last time I was there. Sutro Baths is a beautiful place to not only hike down and around but it is a beautiful spot to get some photos during this trip that will last you a lifetime. There’s so much incredible history in the area and surrounding Adolph Sutro. The the tremendous amount of money he put into San Francisco and the legacy that he left. This place is beautiful and like a little hidden gem.

If fact, all of these romantic things to do in San Francisco would be so fun to do during a photo session. Photo sessions don’t always have to be smile and laugh at the camera but they can be doing something fun and new and creating memories with your favorite person. These are actually my favorite types of sessions. So, if that sounds like some thing that’s up your alley check out the different sessions I offer below and let’s go on a San Francisco adventure.

RAVE REVIEWS

“My boyfriend and I had Torez take our pictures at the beach and we couldn’t have been happier with how they turned out! It was our first time getting professional pictures done and we were both nervous so we worried that our nervousness would show in the pictures. This was not the case whatsoever! Torez made us both feel so comfortable and all while guiding us along the way. She was also incredibly patient throughout the whole photoshoot. The photos came back to us, edited, in less than 24 hours! Considering how eager we were to see how the pictures turned out, her timeliness was definitely a plus. I can’t wait to use her for all of our future photography needs”

“Kellen and I loved our couples shoot with Torez. She made us feel comfortable from the start and the entire process was seamless from planning the logistics to receiving the photos. She had a beautiful vision and gave us helpful direction while still letting us be who we are. She is talented, accommodating, and a joy to work with! We will cherish these photos forever!”

Autumn + Kellen

My fiancé and I took engagement pictures with Torez and we had a great experience and would certainly recommend her again and again. We won our session on an Instagram contest and she was so easy to work with and coordinate. We settled on Carmel, she helped with outfits, location styling, posing, everything. She embraced our awkwardness and our photos turned out amazing — we get so many compliments on them. Thank you, Torez.
