We are loving this trend of having unplugged weddings. The guests are asked to put away their phones during the ceremony.Read More

As a wedding photographer, we get this question a lot: Where should we have our engagement session?
Our best answer would be that it would be a place that you are comfortable in. A place that you are familiar with.
We usually like to recommend a location in which the couple had their first date or any other location that has some sort of significance for the couple.
San Diego has a number of great locations to do an engagement session. Balboa Park is always a favorite location to take photos. The architecture of the buildings is so amazing and there are a number of different locations in which you could take amazing photos.
Any place that has great architecture, the photos are going to turn out amazing. The Salk Institute in La Jolla is a great spot to take photos as well, but you have to be a little more sneaky about it there. Professional photographers are not allowed to take photos there. So you just
The beach is always another favorite for couples. How can you go wrong out there?
Couples also like to change things up and get more greenery in their photos, so they choose a spot around Miramar Lake or Lake Hodges.
There are a number of great looking places like that is Southern California. Some other places that could make for some amazing photos are in a library or in a movie theater. We have taken photos on Montgomery Air Field.
The locations are endless. Take some time to select the best location that fits you. We could take photos at a Starbucks and feel great about it.
There are definitely some locations that we would love to take photos at though. If you are interested in going out to them, then let us know and we can work out a better deal with you.
Here is our dream list at the moment:
San Juan Capistrano Mission Inside of a library Inside of a hangar
We also are interested in doing more theme type photography. At the moment we want to do a shoot that incorporates Star Wars in the engagement shoot.
Follow our facebook page to see the latest themed worked we are looking to do is. We usually will offer to do those shoots for a very discounted rate.
What awesome and unique locations can you think of for an engagement shoot?
What a freaking fabulous wedding we had with Joe and Andrea at the Air and Space museum. We had such a great time with them for their big day. We were able to do the photography and also capture video for the occasion. Check out the highlight video that we put together for them:
That venue was gorgeous and both Joe and Andrew were amazing.
Many thanks go out to Joe and Andrea for letting us be part of their amazing day.

San Diego wedding photography with Phil and Grit at Woodland Heights in Escondido.
What an amazing wedding with Grit and Phil! These two are amazing and they put together an awesome day. They are such a fun couple and you could see that reflect in all of their photos from the day. They had a great event with some great friends and family.
We had such an amazing time working with them during this wedding. It all started with a great engagement session and then had an amazing time during their wedding. The venue was awesome and Grit had a ton of her best friends helping her put together the wedding. Since she had a ton of experience in the business in the past, she knew a lot of people that could make this day amazing.
Their daughter was so much fun and we loved spending the day with them all.
