Stylish Little Italy Engagement | Stephanie and Omar

By, November 01, 2017

Stephanie and Omar met at a college beach party one summer when they were both designated drivers for friends. Omar says he fell in love with Stephanie’s calm, easy-going spirit and ability to make anyone feel at home. The two now live in Little Italy, which is where they requested to do their fun, stylish engagement session. The couple booked a 2-hour session, which enabled us to capture the neighborhood during both day and night conditions. 

After talking with Stephanie and Omar about their favorite spots, we decided to photograph at the Waterfront Park, Broadway Pier and Little Italy. This enabled the couple to stay close to home, and be photographed in locations with personal significance. It also created a nice balance of cityscapes and nature views.

Here is a selection of our favorite images from this fun and stylish engagement session in Little Italy. Enjoy :)

In addition to poses that were fun, laid back and playful, we set up shots that were more stylized, and gave character to the stunning architecture/scenery.

Park Engagements

By, April 18, 2017

Parks are synonymous with romance, and offer much variety in terms of scenery. In addition to being tranquil, away from the urban sprawl, parks are great for an engagement shoot! Here in San Diego, our parks have beautiful features such as historical buildings, monuments and fountains. Here is a selection of our San Diego park recommendations.

Balboa Park

This massive park is the pride of San Diego. It is world-renowned for its abundant and exotic plant life, along with its marvelous museums and architecture. With so much variety within reach, each and every photo shoot is completely unique. If you have a few favorite spots in the park, or a particular vibe you are going, for its important to let your photographer know. That way we can plan logistically, as the park is huge!

Presidio Park

This park, in the heart of Mission Hills, is a hidden gem. It has nice open green space, and plentiful trees, which makes you feel like you are in a forest. It also has the Junípero Serra Museum, which provides nice backgrounds, and adds variety to your shoot.

Liberty Station

This historic naval base has become a popular gathering point for San Diegans. Many local businesses have set up shop in Liberty Station, which is in the heart of Point Loma. With a plethora of beautiful courtyards, amazing architecture, and green open spaces, Liberty Station is ideal for an engagement photo shoot.

Waterfront Park

Right on the edge of Downtown San Diego, on the grounds of the County Administration Building, lies Waterfront Park. This park is distinct, as it offers views of downtown, as well as the San Diego Bay. Running throughout the park are awesome fountains, as well as cultivated plant areas. The administration building itself provides nice backdrops, and there is also a gigantic play structure, which will bring out the kid in you!
