Laura used to live a couple streets over from me WAY back in the day! One of my best friends from elementary school was good friends with the Rhodes family so I’m sure there were nights playing capture the flag with our neighborhood and sledding down the biggest hill in town when it snowed. It’s crazy thinking back on those times because things have changed so much since then but thankfully I’ve stayed connected with most of my old friends through Facebook. I remember the day I saw Laura’s proposal pop up on my newsfeed. The photos were so beautiful and although I immediately thought of how awesome it would be to photograph her wedding, I never thought Laura would actually ask me! But she did!
Laura emailed me a while back telling me all about her destination wedding in Charleston, SC. I was automatically on board when I heard the word destination and then when she said she wanted to bring me out to San Diego for their engagement session, I jumped for joy! Bradley is in the Navy, based in San Diego, and Laura just recently moved out to CA from Florida to be with him. San Diego is one of my favorite places in the whole world as I’m sure most people know by now and I was counting down the days to this trip until it finally happened. Once I arrived in San Diego, I spent my first couple days location scouting and we decided to start at a beautiful park and then head to La Jolla for some beach shots at sunset!
It ended up being absolutely perfect weather which wasn’t too surprising considering it’s California but I was so thankful! Laura and Bradley are such sweet, down to earth people and it was so nice to get to photograph their engagements in a place where they’ll start their marriage! I have a ton of favorites from this session so you’ll have to bear with the long post! Laura and Bradley, your session was an absolute dream!! I hope you love these! 🙂
P.S. If you’re having troubling viewing my blog and the photos are getting cut off, would you mind emailing me? I’m having major blog issues and am trying to get them all fixed.
