San Diego Engagement

Bryan and Kacie

I had been chatting with Kacie for a long time deciding locations for the San Diego engagement session. We had narrowed down, and it was time to rock and roll. But first, we needed to stop and get some ice cream.

Kacie and Brian wanted to incorporate many different things to their engagement session. Although the most important was their beloved dog, Marley, they also wanted some sort of architecture, and beach. I was happy we were able to accomplish it all.

After the ice cream, we drove to Logan Heights, near downtown San Diego, for a few locations I had chosen. The couple really liked the graffiti wall I’ve picked for the photo shoot, and they felt like it was a great match for them. Although the untrained eye might not see anything special in Logan Heights, I really enjoy photographing couples there.

We grabbed their dog, Marley, for some beach shots. He was really excited to be a part of this San Diego engagement, and I’m always excited when the couples bring their pets to engagement sessions. I really think that pets bring the best out of people, specially during the Engagement session. Marley ran around the beach, while we took photos. He was also great when it came time to follow some directions, and look good in front of the camera!

We ended the session in Carlsbad, at the Batiquitos Lagoon Trail. The couple had a relaxing moment, far away from cars and people. They walked, kissed, played with Marley, and finally, they shared a bottle of wine. It’s always great to have such a layback and fun couple when shooting San Diego engagements.
