San Diego Engagement Session Photography | Brian & Kelsey

San Diego Engagement Session Photography

We had a unique request for this San Diego engagement session.  Kelsey and Brian’s wedding theme is ‘A Journey In Time’ and the idea was to incorporate the engagement session into this theme.  The couple was looking to tell the story of how they met through images that symbolize the progression of their relationship.  This was their vision:

We want the session to tell our story, and subsequent theme for our wedding (‘A Journey In Time), subliminally through a ‘flow’ or ‘progression’ of shots that symbolically represent the timeline of our relationship. To help best explain this, I’ll give you an example of the linear stages of our relationship, what it symbolizes or it’s significance, and the key shot(s) we’re envisioning…

  • Prior to our first date – We were in close proximity physically, be it on the same campus as kids in school, or at the downtown pool party, but never recognized or knew one another.
    • We’re envisioning shots in which we’re in the same frame but in our own worlds, not recognizing one another. Some examples we’ve thought about are:
  • Our dating / engaged lives – Our separate life journeys finally converged when the time was right for each of us, hence ‘In Time’. This would be the more traditional engagement photo stage that would highlight our relationship together, both dating and now engaged.
    • Possibly some sort of transition shot from the first stage to this one to symbolize us finally recognizing each other for the first time in our lives?
  • Our future journey together – This would symbolize our journey into the unknown together that we’re about to embark on.
    • The main shot we’re envisioning for this is a long hallway (or other setting symbolic of a journey/path) that we’re walking down, hand-in-hand, away from the camera, towards the exit archway with a blurred light flooding into from the outside world beyond the archway/hallway.

     

Below are a few of the images from the shoot, our interpretation.  We had fun with this unique engagement session at The Embarcadero, in San Diego.  Oh, and the restaurant we photographed in, the Fish Market was where Kelsey and Brian had their first date!  The staff  was especially accommodating, and not only gave us free reign but was super friendly too!

Paul & Stephanie’s Engagement Portraits | Del Mar, CA

 

Stephanie and Paul’s vision for their San Diego engagement session was to capture their carefree, fun loving spirit while surrounding themselves with the things they love.  This couple is glowing!

During our initial meeting Stephanie described the gold dress she purchased for the engagement session and how she envisioned her and Paul twirling and splashing in the water.  Deshun and I were so excited to see how it would all come together!  The dress looks like liquid gold and Paul is so handsome in his suit and bowtie – these photos make me smile.

Bryan and Karen’s Engagement Session | Ventura CA

Ventura Engagement Session Photography

The approach for this Ventura engagement session was documentary style, a lifestyle shoot to capture memories of Karen and Bryan’s favorite things to do together.  We started at the couple’s home, not the original plan but upon arrival we thought the atmosphere would be great for photographing them where they hang out everyday.  Then off to the ‘Tavern‘ Ventura where the couple frequent for great food/drinks.  This is the spot for engagement photos!  So kind of the staff to allow us to photograph inside, (but how could anyone say no to this super cute engaged couple?) there were many rooms, nooks and crannies to get lost into!  The nearby beach is where Bryan and Karen take walks/skateboard/bike ride and capturing their love for the outdoors at Ventura beach was a great way to end the engagement session.  Schedule permitting we are available for engagement session travel and this trip was extra special for us.  The couple invited us to stay the night in their guestroom for an evening of wine and old records, allowing us to get to know them more prior to the big day.  Looking forward to their upcoming wedding at Twin Oaks Estate, San Marcos.

San Diego Engagement Session :: Jason & Alyson

As you know, one of the benefits of the engagement session is getting to know our couples better.  (Which leads to more personalized wedding photography BTW due to the insight we gain)  What have we learned about Alyson and Jason? *Giggles*  Alyson loves to stay active, she can not be not doing something !  So naturally she is very fit which she says is the perk for not being able to sit still – nice!  Jason has a very mischievous smile, usually followed by a mischievous comment, usually followed by a hand slap and a ‘stop it’ by Alyson.  Watching the two interact will make you laugh! (Got to add that Jason loves the flourless chocolate cupcakes we make, credit to Tyler Florence – the best cake http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/tyler-florence/chocolate-cracked-earth-flourless-chocolate-cake-recipe2/index.html and watching him enjoy them so much was a treat for us, ha ha) 😉  There is going to be some great chemistry between us at the wedding, just love this couple!  And aren’t their dogs precious!?  Here are just a few images from their nature inspired engagement session, what a cute family.

Record Store Engagement Session :: Dan & Shima

We’re excited to share some images from Dan and Shima’s music (and other things they love) themed engagement session.  Here are just a few from the record store segment.  The music scene plays a large part in this Boston couple’s lives and their one requirement for us was to find a way to incorporate this into some of the images.  We instantly thought of this record store which was kind enough to allow us to shoot inside.  The best part was seeing Shima and Dan’s face light up, so cute not sure that they wanted to leave.  No they didn’t want to, they came back the next day for more shopping and they scored some great souvenirs! Can’t wait for the wedding in Boston, we are going to have a blast – love you guys!
