10 Spots For San Francisco Engagement Photos

Planning Resources

The Bay Area is filled with so many beautiful spots to take pictures at. It can certainly be hard to choose just one or two. Here are 10 San Francisco engagement photo locations! San Francisco engagement photos are always some of my favorites. If you’re willing to step a little bit outside of SF too I have some absolute gems that you won’t want to miss!

These are location all around the Bay from San Francisco to the East Bay like Walnut Creek. And none of them disappoint in beauty.

1. Baker Beach

I could be at the beach all day everyday and be so happy. And this beach literally with the Golden Gate Bridge in the background. One of my favorite places in all of the Bay.

2. Marin Headlands

Views of the bridge never get old and I don’t care what anyone one else says. Weekends can get pretty busy because it’s such a tourist spot but you will not be disappointed.

3. Sutro Baths

I literally have never been here until just a few years ago. I can only imagine what it looked like back in the day. Literally such a hidden gem of San Francisco.

4. Ruth Bancroft Garden

This place is basically like visiting the desert but without the drive there. One important thing to note if you want to take photo here is that there is a fee and a request that you will have to put in. Check out more about it here.

5. Sugarloaf Open Space

Such a gem in Walnut Creek that not a lot of people know about. I take so many people here and it always looks different depending on the season the sun. So many things but it’s always soo pretty.

6. Redwood Regional Park

Like sometimes I seriously cannot believe this place is in the Oakland hills. The redwoods make it hard to remember that San Francisco is just 20 minutes away. I love this spot so much! Check out this session here.

7. Lovers Lane

Such a pretty spot in Golden Gate Park. It can get a little busy depending on the time of day and the day of the week but such a little hideaway nonetheless.

8. Palace of the Arts

Again, like how is this place location in San Francisco!! Crazy! It’s so much prettier in person too! Another spot that depending on the day of the week and time there may or may not be a lot of tourists.

If you’re concerned about people watching you this definitely not the place for you either.

9. Golden Gate Park

Literally where in this park do you want to go. Like there are so many options just choose a vibe and we will find a place for you.

10. Briones

Right in my own backyard. Briones may not always be this green but if you’re looking for something super chill this might be the place for you.
