A Baker Beach anniversary session was a bit gloomy at first glance, but that didn’t deter Graham and Marcie. They were dressed to the nines and were ready to adventure! These two are celebrating twenty years of marriage and I couldn’t imagine a better way to commemorate this milestone than to travel to your favorite place and have the moment documented.
What I love most about anniversary sessions is that we are freezing time to save theses moments, just as you are at this point of time. Someday, a great, great granddaughter is going to see these photos and feel the love exuding from the images and know how much these two cared for each other.
Graham and Marcie traveled to their favorite city, San Francisco, to celebrate their anniversary. We decided on sunrise because Baker Beach is way less populated then than in the afternoon or evening. What an absolute JOY it was to meet these to and photograph the love that they share for one another on such a special day. Enjoy some of my favorites from their sunrise Baker Beach anniversary session!
Did You Know?! (from wikipedia)
Baker Beach is part of the Presidio, which was a military base from the founding of San Francisco by the Spanish in 1812 until 1997. In 1904, it was fortified with disappearing gun installations known as Battery Chamberlin, which can still be viewed today. When the Presidio was decommissioned as a U.S. Army base, it became part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, which is administered by the National Park Service.
From 1986 to 1990, the north end of Baker Beach was the original site of the Burning Man art festival. In 1990, park police allowed participants to raise the traditional large statue but not to set it on fire since the beach enforces a limit on the size of any campfires.
