There’s something truly magical about the city of San Francisco at sunrise, and Nataly & Ryan’s engagement session at Sutro Baths captured this enchantment perfectly. As we arrived in the early hours, the city was just starting to stir, giving us a peaceful backdrop to their love story. Sutro Baths, with its rich history and stunning ruins, was an ideal setting. The early morning light, combined with the overcast sky, created a beautiful, soft ambiance that highlighted the genuine connection between Nataly and Ryan.
Ryan has a wonderful way of making Nataly laugh, and it’s clear in every photo how much they adore each other. Nataly’s vibrant yellow dress added a pop of color and joy to the serene setting of Sutro Baths. It's these little details, like a brightly colored dress against the historical backdrop of the Baths, that make an engagement shoot truly stand out. Their interaction was natural and full of love, making my job as a photographer not only easy but incredibly enjoyable.
Sutro Baths is more than just a location; it's a journey through time and nature right in the heart of San Francisco. The reflections in the water around the ruins provided us with a playground of light and shadow, allowing for creative and unique photography. The meandering paths and the intriguing ruins themselves offered endless opportunities for capturing intimate moments. This spot is a treasure for photographers and couples alike, providing a blend of nature, history, and urban elegance.
As the sun rose over San Francisco, marking the end of our session, we all felt a sense of excitement for what's to come. Nataly & Ryan’s wedding at the Seascape Golf Club promises to be an extraordinary event, especially with the incorporation of Nataly's Latina heritage, including a mariachi band during the cocktail hour.
