For Beth and Pete’s engagement pictures we decided the best backdrop for their San Francisco life was their fun and hip SF neighborhood, Hayes Valley. Capturing the romance of modern city living, we started at the charming colorful sidewalk café Momi Toby’s. Taking advantage of our San Francisco gardens and city parks, I made sure to snap a few photos at Patricia’s Green – a perfect location for a classic park bench engagement shot. But of course the best place for romantic engagement shots is the stunning SF cityscape of picturesque Alamo Square. The gorgeous Victorian Painted Ladies at sunset was a dreamy setting for Beth & Pete’s Save – The – Date photo. At the end of the day I couldn’t help snapping a picture of Beth’s ‘I like big books and I cannot lie’ tote. It’s still making me laugh as I write this post!
