Since 1929, between Oceanside and Carlsbad, a little slice of Europe known as St. Malo has found a home along the Pacific Ocean. Brittney and David are getting married on the beach here in September, and they flew in from the East Coast a few weeks back so I could shoot their amazing Oceanside beach engagement photos!
On certain days in San Diego, there's a certain quiet. The coastal fog thickens, dampening the sounds of the city. The cool air keeps the tourists away, making places like Balboa Park unusually serene. It is on days like this where the beauty of Balboa Park is fully visible: A mix of architectural styles coexisting beautifully despite the perception, the quiet punctuated by spring blooms. Such a day was perfect for Winnie and Eugene's Balboa Park pre-wedding photos. Confident yet reserved, their stoic demeanors were synchronized to the stillness of the park, making them the perfect subjects for the types of pre-wedding shoots I love.
