Bay Area Engagement Photoshoot Locations & Info

Below you will find a list of my favorite places to take engagement photos! But before you scroll through, I would like to share a few tips on how to pick the best location for your engagement shoot!

Choose a place that suits your personality. 

Do you love the outdoors? Do you prefer a big city? Think about how you like to spend your time together and choose a place based on that. Luckily we do not need to worry about the weather much in California, but keep in mind that beaches or open spaces might be windy during cold months.

Think about where you first met.

If you’re sentimental like me then you’ll want to have photos done in a place that means something to both of you. If you choose the location where you first met, then your engagement photos will always remind you of that sweet day when you met each other.

Make it thematic.

If you have a special holiday, hobby, or season consider planning a session based on those details that are special to the two of you.
