Our paths only crossed once. Years ago at a different stage of life. But Jesus knew we’d come back together. Just a little over a year after their wedding, Summer & Ryan made the trip for their destination Stanford Cactus Garden Anniversary Session in Palo Alto, one of our dream spots for Bay Area engagement session locations. Eek!
Summer & Ryan’s Clovis wedding was definitely one we were sad to miss, but our good friend, Ashley Baumgartner, absolutely rocked it as their Clovis wedding photographer. You have to see their stunning wedding photos on her blog! So when it came time for their destination anniversary session at the Stanford Cactus Garden, all of us were cheering them on! And let us tell you, Stanford Cactus Garden is a top spot for any Bay Area engagement photos or California engagement photos!
If you’re looking for that desert look but don’t want to make the drive to Palm Springs (which we would do in a heart beat!), have your own Stanford Cactus Garden engagement session or anniversary session right in Palo Alto!
Summer & Ryan: we loved getting to treat you to this gorgeous Stanford Cactus Garden anniversary session, and we are praying for many many more years of wedded bliss! Come back and visit anytime—next time, we’ll go to Aqui’s with you for dinner afterwards!
While Summer & Ryan might be celebrating their anniversary with this Stanford Cactus Garden anniversary session, it’s the perfect location for a Bay Area engagement session. We just can’t get enough of the greens and golden light! It’s just perfect for your Palo Alto engagement session!

If you’ve been dying to visit California, or live here but want to go somewhere incredible for your California engagement photos, you just have to visit Palo Alto for your destination engagement session.
