La Jolla Engagement – Jenny & Stan

People meet at unexpected places. Then there’re those who often bump heads at expected places, like say… Vegas! From left to right, its everyone’s time to shine and break out of their element. After all, everything that happens there stay? But who would ever guess you’d be meeting the love of your life there and making it work… now that’s the beauty of the unexpected.  Congrats to Jenny & Stan:)

Wedding at Sacred Heart Church & Coronado Municipal Golf Course

It always begin with a feeling. Something unspoken and unexplainable, something you need to slow down for and just take notice. This time it’s going to be different and worth it. Its a good feeling and it was going to last.  There’s always something about both Adrianna and Jeremy that gravitated them towards each other over the years and miles spent apart. In their presence, it feels so right and beautiful. I thought it was just me, but they also took everyone’s breath away at their wedding. It was a lovely union celebration and I couldn’t be happier to be their photographer!

Point Loma Cliffs & Cafe Engagement – Jenny & Allen

Meet Jenny & Allen, they came all the way from Vegas for their engagement session and I couldn’t be more honored! Their relationship has been a heck of a journey as they moved across cities to be together. Today, he happily placed a ring on it and love is evidently in the air. We did their session at two completely different locations for two looks: a romantic French cafe in South Park and among the beautiful tides of Point Loma. San Diego just has it all!! Best part, their baby Jack was happy to pose along =)

First Date & San Diego Beach Engagement – Yen & Harvey

Planning engagement sessions with my clients is always fun. Sometimes we would get lost in a big list of possible themes, props, and amazing San Diego locations. And then there are couples like Yen and Harvey who wants to take us back to where it all began… a lovely (and nerve racking) first date at Bleu Boheme in Kensington. Harvey finally gathered the nerves to ask her out and had it all planned out. After some pleasant conversations over good french food, she turned out to be women he could see himself marrying. I love the excitements and factors around first dates. Back and forth, observations would be made between every action and silent questions would bubble off. Should I hold her hand? What should I wear? Where will he take me? Please no awkward turtles… Is there something in my teeth? haha anyways, we went back to bring it full circle and relive (re-taste!) those moments.

We also took advantage of San Diego’s beauty and snapped some fun ones Torrey Pines. Yen was looking beautiful and they’re so great together. I also did Harvey’s sister’s wedding a couple of years ago so its an extra honor to be able to do his wedding as well. Can’t wait!

You can tell a lot about a person by how and what they order.
For dessert they decided to try ordering something not off the menu… hmmmm
A great way to break the ice during a first date is to go during cocktail hour, cheers!

Blurry Nights They say the way to a women’s heart is through her tummy! Eating these dishes again really brought them back the start.
And then it came…. Ice-cream with BACON!!  By Yen & Harvey.
Flash forward a couple of years, they’re engaged! Off to the wedding now!
