I had such a blast shooting Brooke and Tony's Del Mar engagement photos! We started the shoot on the
Coast to Crest trail in the San Dieguito River Park. We then shot some great stuff in downtown Del Mar and finished the shoot on the beach at 15th Street. Del Mar Engagement Photos at San Dieguito River Park
Tony and Brooke on the Coast to Crest River Trail in Del Mar's San Dieguito River Park. Tony is 6'8" and Brooke, a former pro volleyball player, is 6'3" so getting my camera high enough with my 6-foot frame was a bit of a challenge.
Brooke wears a gorgeous split-leg gown while Tony dons a tailored suit. It's a perfect ensemble for this classy couple.
Tony and Brooke getting lost in what feels like another world.
The walkway on the trail has been complete for a few years now and its so great to see how well it comes together in these images. Downtown Del Mar
Our next stop brings us to downtown Del Mar, one of my favorite spots to shoot. There are so many nooks and crannies like this it's hard to pick which one to use. I love the dark areas around Brooke and Tony while they are lighted up by the sun.
RIP Bully's Del Mar. You were fun while you lasted.
Around the corner from Bully's is this wonderful wall with gorgeous windows. On summer evenings like this when the sun is right, the building goes into shade while the area below is in the sunshine. I also really love the balance between the windows and the subjects.
Moving down toward the beach, Tony spins Brooke in the late-evening summer sun.
On the road above Seagrove Park the light and foliage colors are amazing.
Brooke and Tony met while Brooke was living in this very apartment complex in Del Mar. We had to stop by for a little trip down memory lane. 15th Street Del Mar Beach
Brooke and Tony embrace beneath a large pine tree at Seagrove Park in Del Mar.
Sort of illegal, yes, but when the view is this good I can't resist.
Moving north along the tracks we head to the old Del Mar Surf Station. Once a functioning train station and now a private office, it still has that wonderful vintage Del Mar feel.
Finishing off with an amazing sunset with these two!
