San Francisco Palace of Fine Arts Marriage Proposal Photography | Margarita & Danny

Danny and Margarita were visiting San Francisco from Calgary, Canada. During their trip, Danny knew he wanted to propose marriage to Margarita, and he knew he wanted to photograph the moment.

I jumped at the opportunity when he approached me. Preserving memories like these is such a joy because I get to hide in plain sight and capture some truly incredible, intimate moments.  The proposal happened at San Francisco’s gorgeous Palace of Fine Arts as the sun was starting to set. Just look at Margarita’s reaction to Danny! Priceless!

All the best to you both!

If you love these photographs, you’ll love this other Palace of Fine Arts marriage proposal photography session, and another surprise SF proposal!
