engagement: kara | chris

This is Kara and Chris and they are getting married!
We are honored and excited to be their wedding photogs and to document this amazing time in their lives. We had SO much fun with this session because Kara and Chris are such chill, fun and down to earth people. Not to mention very good looking...
They are both so kind, and just down-right cool people to be around. Together we came up with a sweet idea for an engagement sesh. First we did a picnic at Kate Sessions Park in San Diego and they brought their brand new, nugget, little puppy named Apollo. Oh my... I was obsessed with this guy. He was the cutest thing alive and we were stoked that he was a part of the shoot! The second half of the session was a "Mad Men" theme. We wanted to play around in the gorgeous La Valencia Hotel in Ja Jolla. This hotel has always been loved by us and we LOVE the "Mad Men" theme. This look was fun for all of us! That hotel is so sexy and vintage. You should go there, get a dirty martini and listen to the amazing live jazz they have in their lobby. SO FUN!
Kara and Chris... Thank you SO much for choosing us and trusting us with your wedding and engagement! We feel blessed to know you both! You guys are such a rad couple and we truly look forward to the wedding day and getting to know you both more. Drinks on us next time!!!
Enjoy this sneak peak of some of our very favorites...
