A few weeks back I photographed Jessica and Mike's Del Mar engagement session. Jessica and Mike are getting married next year at The Crosby Club in Rancho Santa Fe. We began the shoot at the Ranch House in Del Sur, a quaint and wonderfully decorated building accessible to the residents of the Del Sur development. The building is adorned in natural stone and the property is landscaped with mature olive trees, making it the perfect backdrop to welcome fall. We were joined on this portion of the shoot by Jessica and Mike's two dogs, Sawyer and Teddy, who despite their comfort in front of the camera, did their best not to be bored ;-)
We did the second half of the shoot in and around downtown Del Mar. With the passing of summer, the streets typify the serenity and calm that envelopes the coast the other nine months of the year. Of course, the beach beckons, and we wrapped the shoot in the last glow of the evening on the sand.
