We had so much fun capturing Yvonne and Armand’s San Francisco Baker Beach Engagement! They are such a sweet couple, and we are so excited to share their engagement photos!

Armand and Yvonne chose Baker Beach for their engagement session. In addition to the sparkling waters and beautiful beach, what makes this beach so special is that it is located next to The Golden Gate Bridge. This iconic location made for excellent photos with the Golden Gate Bridge as a perfect backdrop. Baker Beach is a mile below the rugged cliffs on the Presidio’s western shoreline. The view from Baker Beach is truly unbeatable.

Yvonne looked beautiful in her pink engagement dress alongside Armand in his sharp suit. Their daughter also joined them for the photoshoot in an adorable dress that matched her mom’s. Some of our favorite photos are of their family having fun in the sand as the sun began to set. For more ideas of beautiful engagement locations in San Francisco, check out the engagements page on our website. San Francisco has many stunning locations for capturing engagement photos.

Before it was the beach that we know today, it was known as the Golden Gate Milk Ranch, and the property stretched across 160 acres.
