It's no secret that I love San Diego. I lived there for a few months last year and desperately hope to call this rad city home again someday. I'm super drawn to the surf-beach-culture of the city, the beautiful scenery, the people... I love it all. As a photographer, I'm so inspired by the sunset, the cliffs, the beaches, palm trees, and most of all the desert! I had planned on going on a trip to visit some friends before wedding season madness kicked in, and I couldn't pass up an opportunity to shoot with a friend and play around in this beautiful Southern California light when I was there. I have known Katie since we were little kids - we went to elementary school / junior high / high school together, so we go way back. It's been so fun watching her settle into this awesome city. Next month, she will be graduating from San Diego State University with her degree in Interior Design (uhhh coolest career path EVER!) and I can't wait to see everything she does in her life and career. Congratulations on your graduation Katie!
As a wedding/couples photographer, I couldn't help myself. I definitely encouraged her to bring her boyfriend along on her session so I could get some couples portraits of them at the beach. Enjoy this two-part session, a little bit of senior portrait action and a little bit of some couples action. xo
