Top 10 Downtown Sacramento Engagement Loactions

Downtown Sacramento is a classic for engagement pictures, there are so many locations to choose from it needed its own blog post! All of our recommended Sacramento engagement locations are super close together so we can pick two different locations to get the perfect collection of images!

The Crocker Art Museum

For couples looking for a moody and sultry session, we recommend looking into the Crocker Art Museum! Surrounded by historical art collections and 19th-century architecture, there are so many angles for a unique engagement session. The museum is a private property, so keep in mind there is a small facility use fee.

The Tower Bridge

Tower bridge engagement pictures are perfect for Sacramento locals who want the Sacramento icon to be a part of their story. This is the most popular spot and almost all Sacramento Engagements end the night here! The sunset is incredible from every angle and we never get tired of photographing it.

The Delta King on the River

Another fun spot to check out along the river is the river walk that goes down to the Delta King. The reflection on the water at sunset is always really beautiful and the Delta King Hotel adds for a unique backdrop. Plus, you can see the tower bridge from below!

Midtown Mural Walk

If you are looking for an urban engagement session location, let’s talk about Midtown! The murals are a fun and unique location for our couples who are looking for a lively and colorful session. There are so many murals in Midtown and Downtown that makes each session unique!

Continuing with our urban engagement locations in Sacramento, we also suggest the Ice Blocks! The art district is perfect for couples who want a session that screams the “downtown life.”

We met Samantha and Clint at Beast and Bounty were they enjoyed a glass of wine and utilized the beautiful architecture of the restaurant. Then we walked right out to R St where the city is buzzing and every angle made for great pictures!

Land Park

In order to get two different vibes for your session, we often suggest starting at a park! You’ll be surrounded by greenery and flowers. We love the idea of having a little picnic, (obviously with some champagne), before heading down to the river at sunset. Land Park is a great location for couples who want that park feel!

Old Sacramento

We met Megan and Jonathan at the Railroad museum for their Downtown Sacramento engagement session. This was the perfect meeting spot to explore old Sacramento, and then head down to the Tower Bridge!

The Capital Rose Garden

The Capital Rose Garden is another a perfect spot for a picnic and spring engagement pictures in Sacramento! The cherry blossom trees bloom in early April.

Sangi and Rohit took advantage of the beautiful spring weather! The cherry trees and orange trees created a beautiful backdrop for their engagement session. They chose a different vantage point on the river choosing to have the Pyramid building accompany them in photos!

The Capital Building

Another option to choose after the Rose Garden is the capital building! Not only does this building represent all of California, but we can capture you and your love in a variety of areas! The Capital is currently under construction but we can still work around it to get the shots you want!

Crawdads on the River

If the water is what you’re after, let’s go straight to the river!

Misty and Kyle had a fun sunset session on the docks of Crawdads on the River. The open water created a one of a kind view of the summer sunset. At the end of this warm evening, the couple jumped into the river to cool off!
