A Legion of Honor, Palace of Fine Arts + Pier 7 Engagement | Johanne + Walt | San Francisco, California

When it comes time for an engagement session, I always tell couples to pick a location that is either: 1) important to them, 2) iconic, or 3) nice to look at…. or in the case of Johanne + Walt’s session, all three!  On the day of their shoot, they also planned to keep the romance abundant with a glam San Francisco date night, complete with fancy dinner reservations and a night at the Fairmont.  I love that they’ll remember their photos as more than just a quick session with a photographer, but more like a day-long date!  But first things first: engagement pictures!  We planned quite the loop around the city in order to hit some of San Francisco’s most glamorous backdrops.  Our first stop was the Legion of Honor – Johanne + Walt chose this spot, known for it’s classic columns and regal architecture, as an homage to their recent trip to Rome.  We wrapped around the Golden Gate to Crissy Field for the perfect bridge shot, before an outfit change at the Warming Hut and then we were on to our next location: The Palace of Fine Arts.  It’s grandness mixed with some glowing California light and this gorgeous couple lent to some of the best shots of the day.  As the sun set, we headed downtown to Pier 7 for a twilight stroll with the city and it’s holiday lights twinkling all around us.  It was one of my favorite engagement sessions to date – stunning photos with a fabulous couple and a scenic tour of our picture-perfect city.  And if these are the results of their engagement photos, we cannot WAIT to see what is in store for Johanne + Walt at their Wente Vineyards wedding later this year!  Enjoy, friends!Palace-of-Fine-Arts-Engagement-Photographer_1000.jpg
