A Dreamy San Francisco Engagement Session On The Beach

This is what an engagement session in San Francisco can look like!! I should say “near” San Francisco because we did head to the Coast to capture the incredible scenery the West Coast provides. Read on to see and learn how to make this dream engagement session a reality.

Where Did The Engagement Session Take Place

While San Francisco is a city full of colorful architecture, delicious food and entertainment, we wanted this moment all to ourselves. So we left the city behind and headed south along the scenic coast where we found this beautiful Montara State Beach. It was a brisk Spring evening so the beach was pretty much ours. It was so fun running barefoot in the sand, rock climbing and watching the birds play in the waves.

Travel Advice If You’re Not From The San Francisco Bay Area

If you’re one of those adventurous couples who look for an excuse to travel and explore together, then maybe you’re considering an Adventurous Destination Engagement Session. And maybe THIS is the place that tugs at your heartstrings. Rightfully so. The California Coast is seriously jaw-dropping every direction you look. Not to mention, you have San Francisco nearby if you’re searching for some night-life entertainment or day-time lunch dates followed by some people watching. There’s never a dull moment in the City!

Regardless, if that sounds like you but you don’t live in the Bay Area, here is what I suggest for a quick spontaneous and affordable trip together:

  • Fly into San Francisco Airport
  • Uber or Rent a Car and drive to Pacifica Beach (I stayed at The Pacifica Lighthouse Hotel)
  • The Beach is about 12 minutes South
  • Enjoy dinner with a view at Moonraker Restaurant connected to Pacifica Lighthouse Hotel
