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.

Point Loma Engagement Shoot | Amanda & Danny

By, March 01, 2016

Amanda and Danny will be tying the knot this November at Tom Ham’s Lighthouse, a charming restaurant and banquet hall on the San Diego Bay. These two are best friends, and have a lot of fun in each other’s company. The couple first met in high school, and their relationship sustained over four years of long distance (Chicago to Long Beach). When they finally reunited, they made their home in beautiful Point Loma.

Amanda and Danny wanted their engagement photo shoot to be informal and relaxed, so we started off at their house, a cozy studio with a charming patio.

Afterwards, Amanda and Danny quickly switched outfits, and we crossed the street towards the America’s Cup Harbor. The walk over (and the harbor itself) provided a nice assortment of backdrops, and made for an ideal engagement photo shoot.

These two lovebirds enjoy spending time at the harbor, and frequent Mitch’s Seafood, one of their favorite eateries. It was really cool incorporating their favorite spots in their photos, and a great way for them to document this special time of their lives.

We hope you enjoyed the photos as much as we enjoyed photographing them!
