Nikki & Chris ♥ San Diego, USA
Photographer: Callie Riesling Photography
Chris and Nikki have been together for 7 years and live in the cool coastal city of San Diego. With an unstoppable passion for surfing, they’ve both worked as surf instructors and share an adoration of the ocean.
So, it made complete sense for them to take off to a scenic spot and surf the sunny waves of Cali along with their photographer friend Callie Riesling to capture their togetherness whilst enjoying what they love to do, in the place that they home.
Bring on spring, warmer weather and sunlit trips to the beach! Seriously, is there anything better in life?!
Natasha & Steve ♥ San Diego, USA
Photographer: Justice Phototography
Today’s long distance love story is an incredible ‘chance of fate’ fairytale! Having met at University in Ohio whilst Natasha enjoyed a semester there from her own UK Uni, this cute couple were initially just friends and after that one term they didn’t see each other again for years.
A chance meeting brought them together after 13 years apart and as soon as they met up again there was no doubt in their minds that they were meant to be together. By this time in their lives they were living on other sides of the globe from each other but undeterred they kept their love alive over the long distance that stood between them.
Steve proposed and of course Natatsha said “Yes!” and so they enjoyed a whirlwind wedding along with this engagement shoot session by the beach in sunny San Diego – one of their favourite places in the world – before starting a new life together in the US.
Heidi & Rick ♥ San Diego, USA
Photographer: Raw Fusion Studio
When it comes to engagement shoots the ones that I love to share are those that are literally bursting with a couple’s personality or that make a wonderful worldwide location the heart of the engagement shoot story. Hopefully these two key elements present you with an abundance of wanderlust ideas as inspiration for your own shoot before your upcoming destination wedding.
Today’s trendy love shoot ticks both the personality and the lovely locale box and displays some serious San Diego style.
Lovers of all-things vintage, Heidi and Rick headed to Sante Fe train station with the super-talented Raw Fusion Studio team. This Spanish Colonial Revival station provided a picturesque backdrop to the antique twist of their theme.
Next stop was Silo in Makers Quarter, a dynamic and original urban space in the East Village. A hub for vibrant creativity, this colourful corner of the metropolis brought Heidi and Rick’s character to life.
Erica & Nathan ♥ California, USA
Photographer: Atelier Pictures
There’s something so enchanting about California weddings. Maybe it’s the ethereal light as the glorious sun sets, or possibly it’s the magical outdoor venue locales, or it could be the relaxed yet refined Cali-style hospitality; whatever it is that makes wedding’s in The Golden State so charming, Erica and Nathan’s nuptials exudes all of these characteristics and more and is captured to perfection by Atelier Pictures.
Be prepared to seriously covet Erica’s big day style. This gifted (not to mention beautiful!) bridey designed her gorgeous wedding gown herself and she also planned and decked out the whole stylish summer soiree, with some help from her hubby-to-be and some fantastic friends. This is one talented DIY-queen and so it will come as no surprise that Erica has her own furniture restoration business and blog and that Nathan is an artist!
If you’re considering saying ‘I Do’ in the Californian sunshine, or if you’re looking for DIY wedding inspiration, then this is the real wedding for you!
Janelle & Tom ♥ San Diego, USA
Photographer: onelove photography
Oh to be in sunny SoCal right now. In the words of ‘The Mamas and the Papas’:
“All the leaves are brown and the sky is grey. I’ve been for a walk on a winter’s day. I’d be safe and warm if I was in L.A; California dreamin’ on such a winter’s day.”
Today’s super sweet couple had the same thought. So they jetted off from The City That Never Sleeps to The Sunshine State for some California love and to celebrate their engagement with this uber cute, laid-back destination shoot.
Jessica B says:
“You know what we love? A couple that doesn’t take themselves too seriously. Just like these two love bugs from New York who planned a destination engagement session in California to shoot in the sunshine. With equal parts fashion and surfer vibes, they topped it off with a few fireside drinks that are smokin’ up the screens over here! Ow ow!”
