This Photographer Escaped Chicago’s Sub Zero Temps for San Francisco!
A couple weeks ago I was able to escape the brutal Chicago winter for the warmer temperatures of California! Eling + Nathan flew me out to SF for their engagement photos! It definitely beats January engagement photos in Chicago!
First up on the blog: My two favorites and they both include bridges! I love how the Golden Gate Bridge looks like a painting behind them in this first photo-
Rincon Park has a great view of the Oakland Bay Bridge- and right now the Bay Bridge has these really cool LED lights on them! And I love taking photos at night- such a romantic feel!
Golden Gate Bridge from Baker Beach
I’ve known Nathan + Eling from our time in college together (though they didn’t know each other back then) – and let me say…I’ve never seen Nathan smile so much as he did during their engagement session!
Walking on the beach with the setting sun over the Pacific…sigh…things I miss out on living in Chicago!
One of the best things about living in Cali…the beaches!
Sutro Baths Engagement Pictures
We headed over to the famous Sutro Baths to catch the sunset-
Sutro Baths has the best reflections!
Like mentioned…sunsets over the Pacific – beautiful!
SF Chinatown Engagement Photos
Right after I had landed…we headed to Chinatown for a few pictures! I love their smiles in this photo-
The hanging lanterns make for the perfect background!
A random bus stop in Chinatown- gotta love the inclined road! In Chicago…the only elevation changes are on bridges =P
Photos in Golden Gate Park
Since we had a bunch of urban photos…we stopped by Golden Gate Park for some photos in nature!
Had to incorporate these ginormous trees – and yes…that’s them in the bottom left hand corner!
This bridge was huge! I felt like a hobbit- Golden Gate Park is so beautiful…has to be one of the best parks in SF!
Palace of Fine Arts at Night
We were hoping to get to the Palace of Fine Arts while the sun was still up…but I knew it would still look good at night!
This place is so grand…and I wanted to incorporate as much of the architecture as possible!
Such a romantic photo at night!
Had to convert this one to B&W
San Francisco Engagement Photos at Night!
The last stop: Rincon Park
Photos of the Bay Bridge at night!
Thanks Eling and Nathan for having me in San Francisco! We hit up so many awesome locations in such a short amount of time! Definitely beats January engagement photos in Chicago! Can’t wait til your wedding!
