We had an amazing opportunity recently to travel with one of our couples to San Francisco for their engagement photos. For privacy reasons we won’t be posting their faces on the blog, or sharing their wedding next year, but they were gracious enough to let us take a few ‘blog’ shots to share with all of you. They understood that we couldn’t go and shoot in San Francisco and keep it a secret! Too exciting!
They wanted a shoot that was typically San Francisco. We had been down there for vacation before Andrew was born, and remembered this beautiful beach with a great view of the Golden Gate Bridge. It was perfect, and the weather held up enough to see the bridge.
We then took a trip to the famous ‘Painted Ladies’, Victorian style homes built between 1892 and 1896. These particular houses are a symbol of San Francisco and have appeared in countless movies and TV shows (including the opening credits of Full House).
We had such a great trip to San Francisco – for anyone in Edmonton who hasn’t been, it’s a very reasonable vacation from Edmonton with a lot of culture and history. We were only there for 3 days and managed to cram a lot of sight-seeing in. I’d like to give a shout out to Mr. Toad’s Tours especially – we had a really fun evening driving all over the city and hearing amazing stories.
