Balboa Park Engagement Shoot | Lauren and Ryan (and Charlie the Puppy)

By, August 05, 2014

Lauren and Ryan met while hard at work at a local biotechnology company. During one of the monthly all-company lunches, Lauren overheard Ryan talking about his brand new Vizsla puppy. Lauren, a fan of the little-known breed, immediately turned around and asked for details. Ryan, of course, was eager to share. A few weeks later, Lauren received a picture of “Charlie” in her inbox. The rest was history!

Both San Diego natives, Lauren and Ryan both grew up visiting Balboa Park as children. They each remember trying to catch “the ring” from the carousel, and were captivated by the overall beauty of the park. They decided to have their engagement shoot at the iconic San Diego landmark, and fondly chose the carousel as their starting destination. During the shoot, we made our way through many of the park’s picturesque locations (archways, flower fields, grassy lawns), for a variety of different moods and backgrounds.

When taking photos with Charlie, Charlie ended up giving Lauren a HUGE wet kiss – oops! Looks like he approves :) Enjoy the highlights below.
