The sweetest couple with the sweetest pups.
This was my first engagement session in San Diego, and I couldn’t have asked for a better couple to start a new city with.
Sweet, friendly, and beaming with the most genuine smiles, Patrick and Clarissa are the type of people that the longer you’re around them, the more you want to be around them.
Together with their pups and Clarissa’s sister, we explored the canyon by the Quince Street Bridge, chatting as we traversed the paths and climbed the hills.
It was one of those sessions that flew by, as it felt all so wonderfully natural.
That's what I strive for. When I’m taking your photos, I’ll tell you what to do and where to look if I need to, but for the most part, it’s all you two.
It’s you two being yourselves, letting the essence of who you are and the love that brought you together really take the scene.
And with Clarissa and Patrick, that came effortlessly.
I can only imagine how beautifully heartfelt their wedding will be in January, and I absolutely cannot wait.
