For the second part of Alleah + Scott’s San Diego Engagement, we took an Uber to Coronado. After we almost died going the wrong way on a one-way, I looked over and saw the cutest sign “COFFEE SHOP” and thought it would be perfect for a shoot. (Little did I know Scott was on a mission to find a gluten free chocolate chip cookie and by chance, they had one! He shared a bite with us and it was amazing.)
By the time we got to the beach, it was one of the most gorgeous pink and purple amazing sunset; it looked fake!
After this, we took the ferry back to Downtown. They took us out to an amazingly delicious Thai meal and we met Alleah’s super sweet mom. It was an amazing end to a perfect day…Thank you Scott and Alleah for being so fun!
Clayton’s Coffee Shop has everything I love.
Alleah had to double fist while Scott enjoyed his long sought after cookie. (A man after my own heart.)
You know when someone sends you an email and you can tell right away they are AMAZING?! That’s exactly how I felt when Alleah first contacted me. I could tell that Scott and Alleah are such a sweet and fun loving couple. They made a trip out here all the way from Austin to do these photos and look for wedding venues (my kind couple.) Then we met in person and I felt like I’d known them for years!
We had such a fun time adventuring through downtown San Diego. We made our way to a cute little boutique hotel called Indigo, where the Rooftop Bar looks out on Petco and also shot at the Jsix Rooftop Bar. Then we walked a little around the Gaslamp before heading to Clayton’s and the beach at Hotel Del in Coronado.
I get so much inspiration from the energy of a city and fun couple; it’s one of my favorite things to photograph. Especially when anything can happen, like the random guy at Jsix who made a guest appearance by cheering their photoshot on! So fun.
I’ll save the cute vintage diner and amazing sunset we encountered in Coronado for a later post…
Then we got another round at Jsix, one favorite of mine in Downtown.
Cheers to the couple! Thanks random guy! It’s always so much fun to see the support of strangers when I shoot engagements.
A few weeks ago, I photographed a little sunset session of these two. They are getting married again for their ten year anniversary in Greece soon. I am so happy (and a little jealous) for them! They needed some romantic pictures for their wedding website and also, why not?!
I enjoy a couple that loves each other after all these years and you can see how romantic these turned out.
This lovely location is Quail Hill in Irvine. I love the Amber color and it matches my wood header perfectly. It’s the little things : )
Erin + Jorge have been married almost exactly three years and now they are having a baby! It’s so fun photographing all her events: boudoir, engagement and wedding! I absolutely love that photography brings me into the lives of such great people.
We photographed this maternity at the same place we shot their engagement, Oneill park in Orange County. It’s a beautiful location with amazing trees (I think are Oak) and gorgeous views.
Thank you Erin + Jorge for having me photograph yet another important moment in your lives! Congratulations on this new little one!
How beautiful did this lace outfit look with the light?!
