You’ve got the ring, your wedding date, maybe your wedding venue, now it’s time to start thinking about your engagement photos! And most importantly, thinking about where you want to have your engagement pictures created! Keep scrolling for 6 of our favorite Sacramento Engagement Session Locations!

There are a bunch of reasons to do an engagement session. Many people like the opportunity to get to know their photographer through a session (but you hired Dee & Kris so you’ll love us in 5 minutes) or to create save the date cards. For us, we love engagement sessions so we can help you capture photos of who you are every day! After your engagement session, you’ll be invited for a personalized design consultation to create beautiful artwork for your home! Head over to our products page for more information!

Downtown Sacramento Engagement Session Locations

Our studio is in the Downtown/Midtown area so it’s only natural we start here!

Downtown Sacramento is a classic for engagement pictures. There are a lot of options to fit every single couple’s style! With so many unique locations so close to each other you’ll have time for two different locations during your engagement session! We’ll choose a great spot to meet up and then we wander around downtown capturing your love story!

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.

Tower bridge engagement pictures are perfect for Sacramento locals who want the Sacramento icon to be a part of their story. At sunset that’s a view, you just can’t get anywhere else!

Want more of the historical architecture feel for your engagement pictures? Let’s head to Old Town Sac! A very popular place for pictures, but this little treasure holds tons of variety and we’ll help you find unique spots that suit you as a couple!

Megan and Jonathan started their Old Sacramento Engagement Session at the park across the street from the Rail Road Museum. This allowed for shots in Old Town Sacramento, the park, and the tower bridge from the River Walk! It doesn’t get any more Sacramento than that!

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!

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 UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden

One of our favorite locations for Engagement photos in Sacramento is the UC Davis Arboretum. This is a beautiful spot for couples who want an outdoor garden feel with tons of variety and suitable for any season. Throughout the Arboretum, you’ll find incredible redwood trees, a lakeside view, a unique arching bridge, and colors that meet any photographer’s dreams! If you’re looking for an Engagement photo location within a garden, let’s head to the UC Davis Arboretum!

Apple Hill: High Hill Ranch, Christmas Tree Farm

Apple Hill engagement pictures are perfect for a fall session, but what about a winter session amongst the Christmas trees? We are in love with High Hill Ranch where you’ll have the opportunity to use the winery and the Christmas trees as a beautiful engagement session location!

Downtown Folsom and Sutter Street

Downtown Folsom is the perfect spot for couples who want a little piece of history as the backdrop of their story but don’t want the hussle and bussle of Downtown Sacramento. With unique architecture and access to the American river, you’ll have lots of options within walking distance for beautiful engagement pictures!
