Downtown San Diego Engagement


Faith & Josh.

They will be getting married at the end of the year in Temecula Wine Country. When Faith reached out to me I was so excited but at the same time was so nervous. She reached out looking for a photographer for her wedding at Leoness Winery in Temecula Wine Country. Rewind 3 years ago… Leoness is mine & my families FAVORITE winery. If you are a red wine lover… thank me later. They can’t be beat! My family and I would come to this winery at least once a month to wine taste and have lunch together. I remember coming here and would see the staff setting up for weddings. I couldn’t help but think to myself what a dream it would be to photograph a wedding here… Fast forward back to today… Me sitting here reading Faith’s email just in disbelief. This is my chance! My very own wedding at Leoness. Could this be true? It was so true!

As you can guess they ended up booking with me. A happy dance and happy tears may have happened! With all couples who book a wedding with me I always photograph their engagement. Faith & Josh wanted to do their engagement photos in the heart of downtown San Diego. They moved here and have enjoyed the last few years but are moving home before the wedding at the end of the year. For them this is a way to remember San Diego and their time being engaged out here. Simple, close to home and full of love.

If there is any takeaway from this story for YOU it would be to dream big. I never thought I would have a chance to photograph a wedding of my own at my favorite winery... why? Self doubt? A million thoughts that make you feel like that will never be you. Work hard, study often, continue to grow within your profession, serve your clients well... the opportunities will come!

I am over the moon excited and looking forward to the end of the year. A big thank you to Faith & Josh. I will be looking forward to your big day!
