flower crowns and white jumpsuits // engagement session at torrey pines
Can I just start by saying how much I love engagement sessions?! There’s no stress of the wedding day - no worries about if your dress will get dirty, no timeline to stay on, no care in the world, just you and your boo, tangled up in all your lovey dovey gush. I’m obsessed. Plus, your engagement session gives me the opportunity to get to know you two as a couple before the big day. Some couples are very sweet and romantic, others are playful and goofy, and some are just badass and bougie and I’m here for all of it! Whatever kind of couple you are, I like to capture that during your engagement session.
As you all know , I’m a huge fan of music and music is an essential part of how I work. I create playlists to set the tone for the shoot and keep the shoot going. Once I get a feel for the kind of couple you two are, set the right playlist, that’s when the magic begins. *cue the cuteness of Robert and Grace *
I’m fortunately enough to know Grace personally because she is one of the darling florists at Native Poppy. And needless to say, we were all waiting for Robert to finally pop the question! So when he did, I was so excited to get to know the two of them together and share in their love story. With Grace being a florist and Robert being a firefighter, Torrey Pines just seemed like the perfect place to do their engagement sessions. With its lush greens, native flowers, and gorgeous coastal backdrops, I knew this would bring out the best in the both of them for a magical session.
I know them to be sweet, playful, but also a little goofy so my SoCal Engagement Playlist was the perfect anthem for this shoot. A little sun, a lot of nature, and a little music go a long way. I’m so obsessed with these two and am so thankful to call San Diego home.
