Mission San Juan Capistrano Engagement | Neeka and Garrett

By, August 18, 2017

When Neeka and Garrett chose the Mission San Juan Capistrano for their engagement session, we knew we were in for a romantic photoshoot. This historic site features charming stone arches, bright flowering gardens, and pure Southern California sunshine. The location provided a fitting backdrop for this couple’s classic style.

Throughout the shoot, Neeka and Garrett cut striking silhouettes against the Mission’s towering walls, whitewashed by centuries of southern California sunshine.  Here are a few of our favorite images created that day.

The Mission's courtyard offers ample opportunity for photos with depth and character. We stepped back and used a telephoto lens for this image, showcasing the background while utilizing the stunning flowers to naturally frame Neeka and Garrett in this scene.

We love to photograph with a shallow depth of field, which draws attention to our subjects by separating them from the dreamy softness of the background. In this photo, sunlight naturally filled the arched walkways surrounding the Mission's courtyard, providing flattering shade for Neeka and Garrett.

We're always looking for shots that will really pop in both color and black & white. Neeka and Garrett wore dark navy, which stood out beautifully against the textured backdrops at the Mission.

Sunset Cliffs Engagement Session | Andrea and George

By, June 06, 2016

George is from Hawaii, and he and bride-to be Andrea requested a tropical beach engagement shoot. We ultimately decided on Sunset Cliffs in Ocean Beach, which is famous for its sweeping oceanfront view. We timed the shoot around the gorgeous sunset, also made use of the surrounding neighborhood for extra variety in the photos. It was a fun shoot with this happy and personable couple, and we hope you enjoy the highlights below :)

Del Mar Engagement Session | Chelsea and Brandon

By, April 28, 2016

It sounds counter-intuitive, but bad weather conditions often make for the most amazing images. For example, at Chelsea and Brandon’s beach engagement session in Del Mar, the storm clouds were looming, and the sky looked menacing. However, by adding a warm blanket, some champagne, and an adorable dog named Jeter, the clouds were barely noticeable :)

We give props to Chelsea and Brandon for making the most of an overcast beach day. It was a really fun engagement photo shoot, and we are looking forward to their wedding later this year at Luce Loft. Hmm, we kind of hope Jeter will be there!
