I’m so excited to write about this awesome engagement session at Bernardo Winery in San Diego, CA. I met Mallory through a referral and we hit it off instantly. We started through Instagram, liking and commenting on all of each others images; just like that we became friends before ever meeting each other in person! I was able to do her engagement session with Britton, as well as her bridal shower, which will also be up on the blog soon. I’m also looking forward to capturing her rehearsal dinner! We were both so excited to finally meet each other and work together for her engagement session – Mallory and Britton have the best proposal story! Britton planned his proposal while they took a two week trip to Europe! He proposed in the city of love, Paris, France. He hired a local photographer to capture this intimate moment by the Eiffel Tower and arranged to have over a dozen huge balloons delivered after the proposal! They said it was insanely romantic, can you imagine!?
The vibe continued at Bernardo Winery as these two were inseparable – laughing, sipping on wine, holding hands and smiling throughout the shoot. We explored the area, using an old barn for part of the shoot, then moving to take pictures by the fountains and even running and dancing through the vineyards with a windmill in the background. This winery is the perfect spot for an engagement, couples session or even a date with your special someone. I can just imagine how beautiful it must be to have a wedding there as well; you can find wine, chocolate and even coffee! Seriously, everyone should check it out! In the meantime, grab a glass of wine while you scroll through this beautiful engagement session.
