As photographers, we love adding a healthy dose of variety into the wedding day images. By incorporating a mixture of poses and diverse locations, we’re able to craft photos that are both original and personal. Even when we know a location by heart, we always arrive early, to ensure a wide range of photos will be captured. We explore the area, check out the day’s conditions, and find the best creative angles.
The Campus at the University of San Diego is classic and timeless, with sweeping panoramic views. Recently, USD was named as one of the most beautiful college campuses in the United States. The 16th-century Spanish Renaissance style buildings feel stately without being imposing, and there are lush green areas throughout the grounds. Other notable features include brick accents, oversized stairwells, and tranquil gardens. Being on the USD campus makes you feel like you’re somewhere important, which makes it a great engagement photo shoot location. Even if you don’t have emotional ties to the University as a student or alum, you’ll be impressed by the picturesque backdrops.
Below are examples of recent engagement photos we captured on the USD campus. To set up an engagement shoot with us, please feel free to contact us.
Old Town San Diego is known for many things, including cultural heritage, historic structures, and of course freshly handmade tortillas. It was the commercial center of San Diego until the 1860’s, and many of the buildings date back as early as 1820. We like to photograph engagement shoots here because of the interesting textures, scenic backdrops, and bright colors. The entire area is romantic and fun, and makes you feel like you’ve stepped back in time. During an Old Town engagement shoot, we often take a stroll along the charming shops and residences. In the central plaza, it’s fun to walk among the guides dressed in period costume, or enjoy impromptu concerts by local musicians. Afterwards, the two of you may want to stick around and enjoy the culinary delights, and indulge in a cold cerveza or margarita.
