This love between you two? This love that led you to feel not just ready — but excited — to share vows in front of friends of family? This love that made everything click? 

It tops the list. This is it, and it couldn’t be better.

San Francisco Engagement Photos

golden gate bridge engagement photos

Hugo and Stacy travelled from Asia to attend their friend’s bay area wedding that I happened to be shooting, so a couple days before the wedding we shot this San Francisco engagement session at the Palace of Fine Arts, the Golden Gate Bridge, and Crissy Field.

I typically shoot all my engagement sessions in Southern California, around Santa Barbara and Los Angeles, so it was a welcome change to add a few iconic San Francisco locations to my engagement photo portfolio. And if you know me at all you know how much I love bridges of any kind, especially the Golden Gate!

Enjoy this San Francisco engagement session!
