I’ve found that the hottest spot for San Francisco engagement sessions is Sutro Baths, and rightly so as it’s a local & historic icon. Because of the iconic nature of the spot, I generally expect couples to request it for their photos, and I’ve had the opportunity to take many gorgeous engagement sessions there, But when I met Crystal and Manolito, they had an entirely different vision for their engagement session, one that would take us on a trip through some of their favorite memories as a couple.

We began our day at Stow Lake, a manmade lake tucked away in Golden Gate Park. The lake itself is an exquisite backdrop for photos, but the landscape surrounding the lake is full of such variety, that around every turn in the path, we found a new and stunning location to stop and shoot some pictures. From tree stumps to calla lilies, Stow Lake did not disappoint.

Photographing Crystal and Manolito here was such fun. Actually, I’m positive that they would be fun to photograph anywhere! They are such goofballs, and I could just tell from even the amount of time I spent with them, that these two keep each other laughing constantly. Their bliss was contagious and soaked through the camera lens into their photographs.

Our second stop that day was the SoMa StrEat Food Park, a self-proclaimed “culinary carnival and urban playground”…and they definitely don’t oversell it! With a delicious rotating lineup of food served via food truck and a fun-filled carnival atmosphere, it is a perfect place to photograph a couple of foodies, and it is no wonder that Manolito brought Crystal here on their first date. Returning with couples to their first date spot for engagement pictures is a special experience, as we find ways to recreate those first moments of their relationship and I get to relive with them the beginning of their biggest adventure.

These two were such a delight to spend a day with as we captured their engagement in pictures, so much so, that we spent time together after the session, chatting and sharing a meal. I can’t wait to celebrate with them next month as I photograph their wedding day!

I hope you enjoyed their San Francisco Engagement Session at Stow Lake and SoMa StrEat Food Park.
