Coronado Photography: Alleah + Scott Part 2

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.)

Downtown San Diego Photography: Alleah + Scott Engagement

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…

We have a canoe that’s so similar to this that I haven’t been able to get on the water yet. It was magical shooting a couple in one, on the water.

Santa Barbara Engagement Session: Gloria + Elliot

The Santa Barbara area is really special to Gloria + Elliot’s relationship and they love to take trips there. So we decided it was the perfect place to shoot their engagement session. A lot of my weddings this year are in Santa Barbara area and it was so fun to shoot Gloria + Elliot there too. I love me some Santa Barbara shoots!

Gloria + Elliot have such a sweetness about them. They are SUPER nice and so cute I just wanna squeeze them!

We shot at Chase Palm ParkSanta Barbara Courthouse and ended on State Street.

(Fun fact: If you watch The Bachelorette, this episode took place in all these spots).

Mission San Jan Capistrano Photography: Ally + Jeff Engagement

It’s been a long time since I’ve done a shoot at Mission San Jan Capistrano so I was excited to shoot Ally and Jeff’s engagement session there. We were hoping for a bright, sunny day but got a super gloomy one instead. But as always, there something special to find in the unexpected. We had so much fun and I am loving how moody and romantic these turned out!

Looking forward to their Santa Barbara wedding!
