If you want your engagement shoot with an urban edge, downtown is the place to be. There are plenty of nice photo backdrops, including historic buildings, eclectic statues, and modern architecture. Also, the ocean is fairly close, so lots of variety can be accomplished within the same shoot. Here is a glimpse of some of our favorite spots.
Downtown San Diego
There are unlimited options in Downtown San Diego. Among the scenic backgrounds are the popular Gaslamp District, Santa Fe Train Station, and Convention Center. There are also great parks, iconic spots like Seaport Village, and amazing street views around every corner.
Old Town San Diego
The birthplace of San Diego, and the site of first Spanish settlement, Old Town is a favorite among locals and tourists alike. There are many rustic buildings that will make you feel like you are transported back in time. Also nearby is the vibrant Heritage Park, which has a variety of restored Victorian-style homes. This can add a nice mix to your photoshoot.

Its Amore! We love little Italy, as it has a lot of colorful buildings, and great vibe for a romantic photoshoot. Just down the street is Waterfront Park, which has clear views of the San Diego skyline and bay.

If you are devoted to North County, and are looking for an urban-style engagement session, plan your shoot in downtown Encinitas! This beach city is known for its surf breaks, which make for great photo locations. There are many charming establishments up and down Highway 101, with photo opportunities all along the beautiful coast.
