Ivette and Roger | Balboa Park Engagement Shoot

By, June 20, 2017

Ivette and Roger had their recent engagement shoot at Balboa Park, which is one of our favorite spots. We arranged to meet at the perfect time of day, in order to capture the soft light and nice colors of the sunset. This fun pair brought along a couple of select props, which added nice detail to the photos. Check out some of our favorite images below!

Using the balloons that Ivette and Roger brought to the shoot, we set it up so Ivette appeared to be floating away. Good thing Roger was there to keep her grounded ;)

With a little assist from us, Roger pulled off this epic dip kiss like a pro!

When photographing, we like to keep things light, to let your personality shine through. For example, we love a bit of goofiness, like Roger's expression when kissed on the cheek by Ivette (right).

Ivette and Roger brought along this cute wooden sign. We captured a nice portrait of the two, in front of the iconic Botanical Garden, to be used for their save-the-date card.

Ivette and Roger did a great job choosing contrasting and coordinated outfits for their engagement shoot. One outfit was dressy and elegant, and the other was more casual and relaxed.

Diana & Kyle – Striking Balboa Park Engagement Photos

By, January 13, 2016

Sometimes life has a way of coming full circle. Although Diana and Kyle went to nearby high schools, they were separated by a few grades, and didn’t know each other. Years later, they connected through a social app, and hit it off immediately. The rest, as they say, is history. Next summer they will be tying the knot at the Old Mission San Luis Rey with a reception at Green Gables Wedding Estate.

For this well-matched couple’s engagement photos, we ventured all over San Diego’s historic Balboa Park. From a photographer’s perspective, the park has much to offer, including Spanish-influenced historical landmarks, tranquil reflecting ponds, and a desert garden full of succulents. We had fun capturing images of these two in a variety of backdrops and natural environments.

Diana and Kyle brought along two outfits, and the delicate lace and pop of color on Diana’s dresses came out brilliantly in the resulting photos :) We hope you enjoy our selection of favorites below.
