San Fran Engagement Photos Sutro Baths
Most wedding photographers absolutely love traveling. Honestly, I’m not one of them. Don’t get me wrong, I really do enjoy being in new, unique places and drinking local beers with fresh faces, but the “process” of traveling I completely suck at. What I mean is I’m guaranteed to forgot at least 2 or maybe 3 important things. And when I’m not forgetting stuff I’m struggling to make healthy food choices, drink responsibly and generally be a human being not spinning slowly out of control. Thankfully, I was able to maintain myself at a somewhat respectable level for a barn wedding at Spreafico Farms before heading up north to San Francisco for Spencer & Kristy’s engagement session. Oh and for a quick side note, I’m currently writing this on a airplane en route to a wedding in North Carolina and most likely flying somewhere over a state that voted for dumb-ass Trump. I know I haven’t been the most consistent so far on what this blog post is all about so to clear up any possible confusion let me just state this post is regarding Spencer, Kristy and a engagement session at Sutro Baths located in lovely (and expensive) San Francisco. Now that we’ve got that all squared away let me get into the details of this engagement shoot in San Francisco at the Sutro Baths at Land’s End!
So Kristy and Spencer are getting married at Vitagliano Vineyards in Temecula, California next year, but Kristy is currently living in San Francisco while finishing up school. Since I was already going to be somewhat up in Northern California in September we just decided to arrange our schedules to make the engagement session happen then. And honestly I’m beyond stoked we did because the day of the engagement session in San Francisco was perfect. The weather was in the low 80s, Kristy & Spencer dressed for success and we were all literally walking on sunshine with perfect weather. Since I am not too familiar with the area I can’t give too many of the details or specifics other than the location was some spot called Sutro Baths located at some other spot called Land’s End, but I will say the area we were taking photos had a lot of diversity. Gorgeous trees, unique pathways and a beach that happened to produce amazingly colorful skies. The setting in San Francisco was certainly rad but the company was even better. That’s because Spencer and Kristy were completely relaxed, fun and were just good people. I mean they were genuinely awesome peoples and I hope my photos captured some of that energy because it really was a great day. So check out the San Francisco engagement photos and let me know what you think! Cheers!
Favorite Moment From The Sutro Baths San Francisco Engagement Shoot
Simply hanging out with these two was a good day, but my favorite moment was probably at the end of the engagement session when we got blasted by the water. Those unexpected events always produce the most candid and authentic moments that are just so rad to capture on camera. The only downside was the 4 hour drive in wet socks and shoes, but it was totally worth it for those few photographs.
Oh and earlier when I mentioned when I travel I tend to forget at least 2 or 3 important things? Well during this trip up to San Francisco I forgot my toothbrush (but somehow remembered my toothpaste), enough underwear (2 for 3 days is bad math) and lastly my evening relax time lavender scented candle. I’m just kidding about the last part. I use the old Irish remedy for a good night’s sleep: booze.
