We shot the first half of Evi + Jonathan’s engagement photos at Balboa Park in San Diego and had planned to hit the beach on the same day for the second half of their shoot. Unfortunately, San Diego traffic had other ideas for them and they got stuck in a standstill heading south on the 5 from Carlsbad … stuck in the traffic at Del Mar as the race season had just begun! We still went to Sunset Cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean for some great twilight shots, but decided to schedule a second session at Torrey Pines State Beach just north of La Jolla in San Diego. For the second half of their engagement session, we met earlier in the day, and were surprised to see how many people were out enjoying the beautiful weather. As always in San Diego, we flirted with the marine layer, that was constantly threatening to sock in the entire beach with that bright soft white light.
We took a long walk down Torrey Pines beach along the cliff faces, and to a beautiful set of stairs carved into the sandstone rocks and up to the hiking trails above the ocean. It was really great having the opportunity to shoot Evi and Jonathan on a second day, especially since they had the opportunity to see the first set of photos, and definitely seemed much more relaxed and to have more fun throughout the second shoot. Check out a few of my favorite images from the second day by clicking on the large image above or any of the smaller thumbnails below.
Evi + Jonathan, I am so looking forward to your wedding next year at the Twin Oaks House!
