San Diego Engagement Photographer | Brandon + Melissa

by | Mar 30, 2017

I knew it the first time I met them. I was the perfect San Diego engagement photographer for Brandon and Melissa. We just hit it off right away! Instead of it being a consultation, it felt like a catching up session among friends.

On the day of the engagement session, I met up with Brandon and Melissa at the North Park Beer Company. They were enjoying their food and ale. I knew that with an ambience like this, it was the perfect time to start shooting

Brandon is a huge fan of beer and local breweries, so we went to another brewery after that. The couple grabbed a few more beers. We also enjoyed the tour around the brewery, giving me the chance to take amazing shots. It was easy to tell through every frame that they savored each other’s company as much as they enjoy their brew.

After the breweries, we strolled around North Park. The couple readily posed against some cool graffiti walls. It was the perfect background for such a laidback couple.

I knew that this shoot will not be complete without a trip to Sunset Cliffs. As a San Diego engagement photographer, it has become one of my favorite spots around the city. It’s not just an amazing place for a photoshoot. It’s the perfect spot to hang out as well

Making the setting even better was the weather, which cooperated with us the entire time. It was such a beautiful afternoon! Brandon was a little apprehensive to go near the edge of the cliff at first. But he went ahead and did it, and the shots I got were amazing. The glorious sunset was the cherry on top of it all, creating the kind of setting any photographer would die for.

It was indeed a great day for a San Diego engagement photographer like me. I can’t wait for their wedding day, at the Darlington House, where even more amazing memories can be captured.
