Torrey Pines Engagement Session in San Diego

Super 8mm, Film, Polaroid & Digital


This Torrey Pines Engagement Session in San Diego was truly so magical! When Haley & CJ inquired with me last summer, I was thrilled. Their inquiry was so kind, and I instantly knew we were going to be friends. Haley is a lover of film photographs and Super 8mm and wanted to book for me for their engagement session and wedding! These two flew all the way to Southern California for their engagement and it was such a special evening.

We started the session with a coffee at Bird Rock Coffee before heading to the beach for sunset. There’s just something so special about meeting clients for the first time after months of communicating over the phone. When we got to the cliffs at Torrey Pines we hiked to the bottom to reach Black’s Beach. We watched locals paraglide off the cliff-sides from above onto the beach! 

Haley, CJ and I watched the sky turn pink as the surfers came to shore. It was so warm and magical. After the shoot we finished the evening with delicious chips and salsa, tacos and margaritas! 

It’s always such an honor to photograph couples’ engagement before the wedding day, even if we are flying to each other. Something about breaking down all of the walls and getting to know each other on a deeper level creates space for vulnerability and honesty in each photo. Engagement sessions are the perfect way to practice having your photo taken on the big day! 

I am SO excited for their upcoming wedding this fall in Austin, Texas at one of my bucket list venues! Check back in a few months to see all the beauty we create together.
