San Diego Beach Engagement Session

San Diego is one of the most beautiful places in Southern California. We have beautiful beaches, gorgeous sunsets, and pretty good weather most of the time. It’s no wonder many couples like to take their engagement photos on a San Diego Beach.

This particular beach, Terramar, boasts an amazing view of the coastline as well as stunning cliffs and exposed rock that really add to the drama of this location.



Engagement Photo Locations in San Diego

Sunny San Diego–known for it’s constantly beautiful weather and beaches. If you’re thinking about where to get your engagement photos done in this beautiful city, Here are some popular (for a good reason) locations I highly recommend!



Catalina Island Intimate Elopement

Santa Catalina Island lays just southwest of Los Angeles and is just a one hour boat ride away on the Catalina Express. Jessica and Brian wanted to have an intimate wedding here with a small group of their best friends and immediate family. Santa Catalina Island lays just southwest of Los Angeles and is just […]



Sunset Proposal in La Jolla

Nothing excites me more than an email or Instagram DM from someone who is excited to plan a proposal for their special person. It’s usually a fun mix of nerves, excitement, overwhelming love, a little bit of chaos and a lot of relief once the deed is done.

CJ and Jill’s proposal was everything I love about proposals. CJ reached out on IG about planning a proposal in La Jolla. He loved the look of the cliffs, and the romantic warmth of the sun at sunset. We found this really pretty and quiet place overlooking La Jolla, which was great because we had been worried about the beach not being a very intimate locatio–so this seemed like the perfect compromise.



Sunset Cliffs Couples Session – San Diego, California

The Sunset Cliffs in San Diego is a great place for a couples session, engagement, proposal or elopement. It’s absolutely beautiful and honestly pretty epic looking no matter what time of day or what kind of weather we’re having.



Mount Laguna Elopement Inspiration – San Diego, California

San Diego is known for it’s beaches, surf, and most importantly, it’s tacos.

Yet just fifty minutes outside of the city you can find yourself in a forested wonderland of sorts called Mount Laguna. The air here is fresh and crisp, the trees towering and fragrant and the adventure opportunity? Endless!

Mount Laguna is one of the most beautiful places to say your vows in Southern California. This 6,000 ft mountain resides on the eastern edge of the Cleveland National Forest and overlooks the forest as well as the Anza Borrego Desert. Open year round, this mountain receives snow fall in the winter and sunshine in the summer months. It can also get quite windy, so just be prepared to rock that windblown look. Hats are also a helpful accessory for fly away hair!
