Last fall, we had a fantastic time exploring some of Taylor and Patrick’s favorite San Francisco spots during their engagement session. They live in the Pacific Heights neighborhood and wanted to capture some of their life together in the city before their April wedding in Florida. We happily obliged.
Our first stop was their neighborhood haunt Garibaldi’s Restaurant, where a few drinks warmed them up for their trip down Lovers’ Lane (literally!) in the Presidio. Since it was such a lovely, balmy day, we were surprised to have the awe-inspiring Wood Line sculpture practically all to ourselves.
Luscious solitude was not the case, however, when we arrived at the Lyon Street Steps. With views of the Palace of Fine Arts and the bay, it’s a popular location for camera-wielding tourists. Fitness enthusiasts also enjoy racing up and down the 332 steps as well as performing assorted calisthenics at the top of the steps, utilizing the curb and trees as makeshift fitness equipment. We managed to get in our own cardio and strength-training workout (laughing and giggling all the way) before continuing on to our last stop, Fort Point.
Except we didn’t actually make it to the historic structure itself. Instead, we hiked up the adjacent hillside for breathtaking views of the Golden Gate Bridge, the bay, and Alcatraz. Our sore everything the next day was a testament to how much fun we had, and we wish Taylor and Patrick nothing but the best on their new journey together!
