You've decided to spend the rest of your days with the love of your life. Once upon a time, you might have shouted your happiness from the rooftops. But in modern-day San Francisco, you're most likely planning to flood your social feeds with shiny, mushy selfies (#couplegoals, #humblebrag).
Sure, your iPhone X can handle it, but why not go for gold and hire a real human to capture the moment for you—there are tons of wonderful pro photogs here in the Bay Area. You'll want to choose a location that fits your vibe as a couple; and if you're a real bridezilla, one that matches your wedding color palette (we know there are a few of you out there!). Luckily, there's literally no shortage of photogenic sites both inside the city and just a few miles away. See where these Bay Area couples said "We almost do!" for the camera, and perhaps find your own photographer along the way.

You can't go wrong with foaming waves, rolled-up pants, and the Golden Gate Bridge on the horizon. Baker Beach is one of the quintessential photo destinations of San Francisco. Bring a picnic and make a day of it.
