You may want to consider Golden Gate Park too. They have several gardens (Japanese, Rose, etc.)


Be aware, if you go to the Heritage Rose Garden, old garden roses have different blooming times than hybrid teas (what is most popular today). You should be able to check with them on the best time to go with the most roses in bloom. (I've grown antique roses for over 10 years.)

In my opinion if you go to San Francisco and walk around some of those parks I'm sure you'll find some great places for shots. Plus it's really nice and cool there. Then you have like the park with the large trees, I don't know names so don't shoot me please.
Sorry if this didn't help much.
Personally though find like fountain like area's or by a creek or stream those tend to be super nice.
