Jessica and Daniel drove down for their Little Italy San Diego engagement session, and we had a blast getting to know each other better while being silly, laughing, and cuddling all over town. We started off just chatting and walking around Little Italy, stopping every few blocks when we saw awesome light. We took a short break for some drinks and food at Prep Kitchen Little Italy (you have to try their fries!), before heading back out to take some night-time portraits in the San Diego Gaslamp Quarter. Jessica and Daniel warned me that they would be super shy, and they were worried. But I assured them that I would only let their best selves show up in my photographs, and I’m so excited to share these images because I truly feel that they genuinely capture the beauty of their relationship together. Nothing overcomplicated or fancy — just the simple sweetness, cuteness, and light.
Jessica & Daniel, thank you so much for being yourselves and trusting me to do my thing. I can’t wait to shoot your wedding soon!
