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
