I can’t believe I’ve lived in the San Francisco Bay area and never shot a session at Sutro Baths before. It’s an awesome not-so-hidden gem in the city. Power lawyer couple Lydia and Matthew chose the place for its unique structure and beautiful seascape and I can’t thank them enough for showing me around.
The now abandoned ruins was once a large privately owned swimming pool complex, built in the late 1800s. The building housing the baths burned down in 1966 and was abandoned. The ruins may still be visited and are part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. It provided a backdrop to Lydia and Matthew’s engagement photos. They were such a joy to work with! And it was one laughing spree after another. Serves me right to ask lawyers silly questions! I can only envision a lifetime of fun debates, laughing and love for them both.
