In an attempt to REALLY start blogging more, I'm digging up this laid back engagement session with Rachel & Karl from last November. I remember this session quite well - one of the reasons being it was the first time meeting both Rachel and Karl in the same room (I met Karl previously and only knew Rachel from email). Relooking through the gallery has me, once again, smiling from ear to ear. These guys constantly poked fun at each other, had tons of inside jokes, and overall just made the session ultra easy (and hilarious).
We started off photographing around their home in Hillcrest before driving to Balboa Park to finish the session. I've photographed at Balboa Park at least 50 different times, and each time, it's definitely a challenge getting images I haven't gotten before. This time was no different - I wanted to give these two an awesome experience before their wedding so they could rest easy knowing they can give me their full trust on the wedding day. If you have some extra free time, check out this Balboa Park wedding I photographed back in 2015 - it's crazy to see how much I've changed in 3 years! :)
For photographers: I used a 28mm, 35mm, 45mm, and 58mm with the Nikon D850.
Here's a small selection of my favorites from the day - hope you enjoy!
