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!
