Finding California’s Hidden Gem’s for your Engagement Shoot

FILED IN: Engagement

Franee and Taylor are getting married!

Ive had the honor of shooting in some of the most magical places all over California. As a local to Northern California I’ve been able to capture thousands of magical moments in many spectacular locations.

I had the privilege to be apart of Franee and Taylors Engagement shoot. They are the cutest couple who loves living in the moment. He popped the question and she said YES surrounded by friends and family very close to the location they first met each other.

They love nature and all the beauty that comes with it. Franee and Taylor asked me to help them pick a location for their engagement shoot. I choose this hidden gem in Sunol, California because the love they have for the outdoors. Since they are both lovers of the wilderness they are planning on having their reception at a beautiful Ranch style location in East San Fransisco Bay Area. If you’re looking for a romantic, elegant, and rustic venue check out The Ranch at Little Hills.


It would be my privilege to share these locations that helps make for timeless, beautiful photography. As well as help you choose a breath taking location that best suits you both as a couple. Send me an inquiry on my website http://www.hollydphotos.com so we can discuss specific locations in further detail.

My top 5 favorite counties I love working in and would love to recommend to you are..

1. Napa County

2. Sonoma County

3. Alameda County

4. San Mateo County

5. Sacramento County



Location is important as it adds charm to the photographs. Here are some tips to consider.

1. Choose a meaningful place that you both have a connection too.

2. Natural lighting is a must! Your photographer should help you plan out the correct time frame as each location varies.

3. A quiet place equals no distractions so you can let loose which will allow for beautiful footage and no photo boomers in the background.

Congratulations Franee & Taylor on the beginning of your forever love story!
