This couple booked us to photograph their March wedding, but because they found us late in their search for a photographer, they hadn’t planned on having the time for an engagement portrait shoot. Since we love to get to know our clients before the “big day,” we encouraged them to spend an afternoon with us at Balboa Park in San Diego for some pre-wedding photos. Despite it being a holiday, we weren’t headed to the zoo or museums, and that’s where the crowds would be, so that left the areas we wanted to go with very little foot traffic.
These two love to play and truly enjoy each other’s company, so we set out to capture the fun that they have together. We aimed to get a mix of a traditional type shots (you know… the portraits that mom and grandma will want) alongside a variety of modern casual photos. Of course, the photography part is easy when you have great subjects! We simply followed them with camera and lighting and let them be who they are. The resulting shots were everything we had hoped they would be.
The best part though? …was getting an email after the photo session thanking us for making the shoot so much fun. Really guys, YOU are what made it such fun. We had a great time and are looking forward to photographing your wedding in a few weeks!
