Newly Engaged Couples
Kelly & Daniel
July 15, 2018
These University of San Diego love birds met in college and were instantly a match made in accounting heaven! From the beaches to the parks to their love of craft beers, Kelly & Daniel love all things San Diego! Earlier this year, Daniel tried and tried again to meet up with Kelly's parents to get permission for her hand in marriage but was constantly intercepted by Kelly! According to Daniel, it has always been pretty hard to surprise Kelly so pulling off the proposal had to be simple but sneaky. Of course Kelly's parents approved and Daniel proposed to Kelly at Sunset Cliffs in La Jolla in December of 2016.
After meeting Kelly & Daniel at a bridal show at the US Grant (which will be their wedding venue in 2018), we instantly connected! A few months later we did their engagement session in Balboa Park. With a love for architecture and bright, natural colors, Kelly & Daniel looked right at home in this outdoor setting. Kelly & Daniel wanted to take advantage of different perspectives and just have tons of fun. Even after admitting they felt shy in front of the camera and might need a lot of guidance, you would never know! Their playfulness and love for each other was infectious and we are so excited for their wedding next year at the US Grant (ceremony at the Immaculata at USD - where they had their first date going to mass).
Melissa & Adam
June 15, 2018
A perfect day spent with a perfect couple. Melissa & Adam decided to do their engagement session on Coronado Island because it reminded them of all the times they spent there when they were first dating. Adam lived in Downtown San Diego and on the weekends they would take their bikes on the ferry over to Coronado to do some exploring. That exploring led to this beautiful relationship Melissa & Adam have. I had to give slim to no direction in posing as their chemistry was so natural. We cannot be more excited for Melissa and Adam's wedding this June (2017).
Alycia & Matthew
January 3, 2018
Matthew and Alycia met while Matthew was tutoring Alycia's two younger sisters in math. Alycia's mother thought Matthew and Alycia would make the perfect couple so she planned a family get dinner and game night. Matthew said "Alycia decided it would be best to win the board games by cheating. Of course I just let it happen so she could be happy winning...that's probably what I should have done, but instead I proceeded with "Uhh you cannot do that, you're a cheater!" It was true love from that moment on." Alycia and Matthew are goofy and sweet and their love shows through every look they give each other!
Kevin & Phil
September 17, 2017
An engagement session in San Diego, California. These two are getting married early next year at the Oviatt Penthouse in Los Angeles, CA and it is going to be incredible!!! I had such a great time hanging out with these two who travelled down from West Hollywood, CA.
Kasey & Andria
August 30, 2017
THESE TWO!!! I can't get enough of them. Kasey surprised Andria with the ultimate proposal! Andria had no clue and it went so smooth... all that planning really paid off for Kasey! I'm super honored to have been chosen to document this moment in their lives. The love between these two is just immediately noticeable. They travelled all the way from North Carolina and I am so happy they did. Kasey is in the military and Andria is an accountant. I know they would love to be featured... I hope you enjoy these photos! I know I do and I loved taking them.
Talia & Jon
July 22, 2017
Balboa Park in San Diego is such a unique venue with museums, incredible architecture and stunning gardens. Talia and Jon are so in love and we all had a great time running around the park, even with Talia in her Louboutins! Can't wait for their wedding next summer at Calamigos Ranch.
Jennifer & William
July 1, 2017
William popped the question at his and Jenn's adorable daughter's 2nd birthday party. It was a Disney-themed day that ended with a fairy-tale finish in two people in love!
Chrisy & Noland
June 19, 2017
From the photographer: Noland is with the Coast Guard in Northern California and had a week off that he decided to make the most memorable week of a lifetime. He flew home to propose to the love of his life, Chrisy. I had such a blast capturing Noland & Chrisy's proposal at Bailey's Palomar Resort! Bailey's had a rustic mountainous atmosphere that we were able to take advantage of. It was so much fun seeing Noland & Chrisy's goofy side shine through during this very special session. This location was very special to Noland, as his parents were married there many years ago. The tradition continues!
How we met (from the couple): We met at a bar outside the Lakeside rodeo. My friend Jose (Noland's friend) noticed Chrisy and a friend of hers from across the bar and decided to drag me along with him to pick her up. He dropped an extremely cheesy (and inappropriate) pick up line. Chrisy thought it was so funny that she stuck around talking to both of us. We ended up chatting the rest of the night and she agreed to go on a date with me the next day (to the rodeo!). The rest is history!
