Walking on the beach, with the Golden Gate Bridge in the background, is an iconic San Francisco Engagement Image. It’s a popular request and as San Francisco Bay Area wedding photographers we are often asked to shoot on Baker Beach in San Francisco. Of course if you have ever visited this beach on the weekend, you would know why we are often asked how we managed to shoot this image and avoid getting other people in the shot. This beach can be absolutely packed on a warm weekend day. Reach out to us for a consultation and we will be happy to tell you our secret to success at for an amazing Baker Beach Engagement Session.
Another nuance to Baker Beach is managing the coastal fog. On some days it never really burns off and a boring overcast sky is the result. This is therefore a very seasonal location and we are somewhat dependent on the weather. When the weather is not cooperating we normally just head inland towards the Ferry Building and Embarcadero Center. We can usually find the sun on the other side of the hill and still create some scenic images.
