The Perfect California Locations for your Engagement Session

The Perfect California Locations for your Engagement Session

One of the most frequently asked questions I get is where do I recommend getting your engagement pictures taken. I’m always happy to share my favorites spots with clients and thought it was time I told everyone about these hidden gems. Each one gives off a slightly different vibe and that is what makes them special.

Mare Island

One location, four distinct backdrops make this the perfect for the couple looking for a variety of looks. Brick infused, thick glowy green foliage, and architectural elements are what you will get at Mare Island. . This has recently become one of my favorite locations to shoot at as the options are endless and the results are always stunning.

Pena Adobe

Locals to Vacaville and Fairfield know Pena as a great spot for a morning hike. I’ve come to know it as a great spot for warm, sunkissed, glowing photos that showcase any couple well. The amber foilage will give off rustic vibes and the Redwood grove offers something uniquely Californian.

Napa Waterfront

Napa may be known for it’s scenic vineyards but the waterfront is really where it’s at if you are looking for a classy city vibe. Unlike the crowded city streets of many of our local big cities (looking at you SF) Napa’s waterfront showcases the urban and chic architecture many are looking for. This is the perfect location to get all dolled up and go full out for a bougie shoot. Major bonus points if you strike a runway pose for me!
