Bankers Hill and Balboa Park Engagement

By, July 31, 2017

Lauren and Linda are a lovely couple, and they wanted to incorporate both Bankers Hill and Balboa Park into their engagement photo shoot. So they opted for a 1.5 hour shoot, which gave more time and flexibility, and allowed allowed us to photograph for them in completely separate locations. As day turned to evening, there was also an outfit change, which gave a nice variety to the photos :)

The shoot started off in Bankers Hill, at a charming pedestrian bridge over Maple Canyon. We took the opportunity to photograph on the bridge, as well as underneath it, making use of the leading lines. The chemistry of this happy couple resulted in many fun standout images!

For the second half of the photoshoot, we ventured to Balboa Park, which is officially one of our favorite places. Lauren and Linda went with formal attire for this part, which paired well with the classic architecture of the park. Enjoy!

Nature Engagements

By, April 18, 2017

If you and your spouse-to-be love the great outdoors, there are a bunch of options in the San Diego area. Within a 20-ish minute drive, you’ll find lush forests, open fields, enchanting trails and even hilltops. Here is a highlight of some of our favorite locations.

Marian Bear Park

This is a hidden gem that runs all along the San Clemente 52 Freeway. There are winding pathways, open fields and lots of trees.  With hills in the background, the sun sets a little earlier, so you’ll want to start your shoot 1.5 to 2 hours before sunset.

Los Peñasquitos Canyon

Where the 5 meets the 94 lies a beautiful canyon, with trails and vegetation throughout. Also nearby lies the Synergy Inc. building, which has an interesting facade and unique architecture. It can provide a nice contrast to your photo shoot!

This cool spot in Rancho Sant Fe feels like a scene out of Little Red Riding Hood. It has a charming wood framed structure, which is surrounded by lush forest and eucalyptus trees. It is a great spot for an engagement shoot!
