When it comes to taking engagement photos in San Diego; there is a wide selection of unique and interesting locations to choose from. As an engagement photographer in San Diego I get asked about this all the time. Each engagement photo location, from the historic architecture of Balboa Park to the crashing waves of La Jolla Shore, lends itself to a specific feeling and overall style. Consider discussing locations with your engagment photographer; that may work best for the aesthetic you are hoping to achieve, as well as times of day that may work best for your shoot.
For this shoot, Thais and Bryce chose the beautiful Solana Beach as the backdrop for their engagement photos.This fun-loving couple chose this location as their first date was only a few blocks away and they have always loved to visit since. Solana Beach is so meaningful to this couple’s love story. I was overjoyed to capture them there; for Thais and Bryce to have the photos as forever keepsakes of their special place. As an engagement photographer in San Diego I have had the pleasure to capture so many couples beach romance stories; but this one was truly special.
When choosing the location of your engagement photos I suggest choosing a location that has some meaning; or value to you as a couple. This could be a fast food restaurant that you drove through late at night after he proposed; or, like Thais and Bryce, it could be a beach near where you had your first date. However, if you are unsure of a place that might make the most sense be sure to reach out to your photographer and discuss a few local options. As an engagement photographer in San Diego I know an endless amount of intimate spaces with magnificent views or historic landmarks all throughout our beautiful city and can help you find the perfect location.
As an engagement photographer in San Diego I can tell you that there are many benefits to having a photoshoot with your photographer prior to your wedding day. The first is that it allows for us to meet and for me to gain a better understanding of your journey that got you here, before we work together again on their wedding day. An engagement shoot also allows the couple to get a feel for what it’s like to be in front of the camera, as well as allows them to learn how I approach posing and directing them. Engagement shoots are excellent practice and can help to alleviate nerves on the day of your wedding. You can go into the day knowing what to expect, my client experience style and knowing how much fun we have together!
I am frequently asked what my clients should wear to their engagement sessions, as an engagement photographer in San Diego. As a result, I’ve written two blog posts delving into the best attire to wear for your engagement shoot: What to wear to your engagement session – for him and what to wear for your engagement session – for her. One of our favorite things to remind our clients is to always wear what makes them feel their best. If you have a favorite flirty dress you’ve been dying to wear or new heels begging you to take them out of the box, use this as an excuse to dress up and feel your finest!
Now remember, when you are thinking about your San Diego engagement session be sure to choose a location that is unique to you and your love story as well as choosing something to wear that makes you feel your best. And most importantly choose a photographer you have a connection with and use this engagement session as a rehearsal for your big day!
