Park Engagements

By, April 18, 2017

Parks are synonymous with romance, and offer much variety in terms of scenery. In addition to being tranquil, away from the urban sprawl, parks are great for an engagement shoot! Here in San Diego, our parks have beautiful features such as historical buildings, monuments and fountains. Here is a selection of our San Diego park recommendations.

Balboa Park

This massive park is the pride of San Diego. It is world-renowned for its abundant and exotic plant life, along with its marvelous museums and architecture. With so much variety within reach, each and every photo shoot is completely unique. If you have a few favorite spots in the park, or a particular vibe you are going, for its important to let your photographer know. That way we can plan logistically, as the park is huge!

Presidio Park

This park, in the heart of Mission Hills, is a hidden gem. It has nice open green space, and plentiful trees, which makes you feel like you are in a forest. It also has the Junípero Serra Museum, which provides nice backgrounds, and adds variety to your shoot.

Liberty Station

This historic naval base has become a popular gathering point for San Diegans. Many local businesses have set up shop in Liberty Station, which is in the heart of Point Loma. With a plethora of beautiful courtyards, amazing architecture, and green open spaces, Liberty Station is ideal for an engagement photo shoot.

Waterfront Park

Right on the edge of Downtown San Diego, on the grounds of the County Administration Building, lies Waterfront Park. This park is distinct, as it offers views of downtown, as well as the San Diego Bay. Running throughout the park are awesome fountains, as well as cultivated plant areas. The administration building itself provides nice backdrops, and there is also a gigantic play structure, which will bring out the kid in you!

Downtown San Diego Engagement Shoot at The Tipsy Crow

By, March 13, 2012

One of our favorite downtown spots is the Gaslamp Quarter. As well as being the heart of San Diego, and a must-see for tourists, the Gaslamp Quarter is also full of engagement shoot opportunities! As you’ll see in Alessandra and Richard’s shoot, we love to incorporate the diverse backdrops and unique historical buildings of downtown San Diego.  

Alessandra and Richard wanted to start off at a familiar place, the Tipsy Crow. This bar is owned by a friend of the couple, and it also happens to be San Diego’s longest-standing bar! The Main bar has been located on the corner of Fifth and F since before the days of prohibition. We were amazed by this place and the old-world details: the red velvet curtains, the rich leather sofas, the scarlet colored pool table, and an ultra-cool tufted green chair on the third floor. We had a lot of fun with this environment!

We later ventured out towards Horton Plaza to capture the city feel. We happened across one of the most amazing street musicians we have ever heard! The couple danced to the sounds of the saxophone, and we hung back and documented the scene.

Check out a few images from this neat engagement shoot, and don’t forget to let us know what you think!
