Couples often ask me for suggestions for their engagement session. There’s no shortage of iconic landmarks in San Francisco – Golden Gate Bridge, Ferry Building, Palace of Fine Arts, Legion of Honor, San Francisco City Hall, Presidio, Golden Gate Park, just to name a few. Then, I often follow up with the question, “Is there a place that’s meaningful to both of you?” Maybe it was the fancy restaurant you went to for your first date, or the corner pierogi truck you frequent every Friday night. It could the spot where he got down on one knee and nervously popped the question, or the stadium of the home team you both loved and rooted for.
Allison and Andrew spent MANY of their weekends hiking the hills all over San Francisco Bay Area. Mt. Tamalpais was their absolute favorite. They remembered this stretch of the forest that was a world of its own – a little slice of peace and solitude far away from the hustle and bustle of Silicon Valley.
