One of the best hidden gems for photography in Irvine, CA is Jeffrey Open Space Trail! With it's beautifully maintained trails and it's towering trees that pick up the glow of golden hour, it is literally the perfect photo spot for any occasion.
This post has been a long time coming, but after thoroughly covering almost every inch of Sunny San Diego, we have compiled a list of our Top 5 Favorite San Diego Photo Shoot Locations. This list is just a few favorites of ours over the years, but don't forget spots like Coronado Bay, USS Midway, Balboa Park & Museums, College Campuses, Anza Borrego Desert, Hotels, Etc. Get creative and make it unique to your family. We love traveling as well, so have an adventurous idea, let us know!
We are so excited to share with you all this UP themed Disney engagement session from the Temecula Valley Balloon & Wine Festival! What an adventure it was shooting these pictures and traveling along the shore of lake Skinner in Temecula, CA to catch the balloons at the perfect angle.
While everyone was raving about the California Poppy super bloom, we were raving about this couples blooming love! "Let love bloom" was our inspiration for this session in Lake Elsinore, CA and i feel like we couldn't have captured that any better!
It started off as a beautiful day at Sunset Cliffs, brilliant blue skies and luscious clouds, mighty crashing waves, golden cliffs, and a loving couple excited for a photo shoot. Little did Leeanne know, this was not any other photo shoot. This session would be the day that changed her life forever.
The session had been in the works for a few weeks by this time. We worked diligently with Steven to mastermind out every detail (the location, the timing, the set up, etc.) that would make their proposal magical. Steven and Leeanne had talked about taking photos so this session would be nothing but that, in her eyes. Steven although, had another plan. We sent many messages back and forth with Steven discussing romantic proposal set ups, that not only included on of the most resplendent viewpoints in San Diego, but a picnic set up for two overlooking the crystal blue waters. We couldn’t wait and got straight to work getting all the props ready for the big day!
Beautiful engagement photos at one of San Diego's most iconic beaches?
Scipps Pier is such a great place for any photos. This engagement session was blessed with an amazing sunset. These are the kind of images you can't make up!
The photos do it fair justice but you really need to experience a session with Gleimlight Photography at Scripps Pier for yourself!
The amazing couple in these images hired us for their proposal several months back and returned for more incredible, artistic and stunning images.
We are so thankful to have had the opportunity to work with them again and look forward to capturing some incredible images for them in the near future.
I strongly suggest checking out Scripps Pier as one of the potential beach shoots for your next photography session. Check it out in person or get directions! Map it!
It also makes a beautiful wedding Venus. One of the venues we recommend is the Scrips Forum for Science. Interesting name for a wedding venue but I promise it delivers! Check out more details and see costs here!
This is one of our favorite spots in San Diego for amazing photography. The sunsets are always beautiful and the ocean waves a gorgeous teal blue. It is actually a featured location on Photographer Lifestyle, you can see it here for further information.
