Balboa Park Engagement Session


Balboa Park Engagement Session


I’m so excited to be publishing this BEAUTIFUL Balboa Park engagement session that took place in San Diego, CA. This day was literally a dream for my photographer’s heart! I feel so grateful I get to work with such amazing and sweet couples! We first worked our way through the parks gardens and a few other key locations at this amazing park. If you’re in the Southern California area you definitely want to check out Balboa Park in San Diego!

Meet Daniel and Ryan this sweet couple met 8 year’s ago at a Disneyland restaurant where the chef Daniel worked with mischievously set them up!

The chef knew they would hit it off and as Ryan says “the rest is history!” Ryan was a server at this restaurant while she also juggled being in school to become a nurse. They eventually took a casual vacation to New York for a concert where Daniel was secretly planning on proposing! He proposed and she said yes! To think that they have been together for nearly a decade now is so sweet.

If I could describe this sweet couple in a few words it would be loving, kind, generous, thoughtful, patient, and detailed. We began to plan their engagement session a few months ago and trust me when I tell you that a lot of thought and detail went into planning the perfect session for them!

They had planned to opt out of taking engagement pictures because Ryan felt that they had already had a long engagement but I am so grateful we made this happen for them! Now they have beautiful images they can cherish for a lifetime with their friends and family.

Our second location took us straight to the beach! We headed down to Sunset Cliffs in San Diego. You’d never know I was losing sun and that it was getting really gloomy…the pictures still came out amazing!

Daniel and Ryan, I loved working with you both so much! I am so thankful to have had the privilege of working with you in an amazing location I had been wanting to photograph. Congratulations again and cheers to many more years together filled with love, laughter, and joy!
