L’auberge Del Mar Engagement: Desiree & Brian

Desiree and Brian came into town from Scottsdale, Arizona and luckily we were able to squeeze their engagement session in for them.  Man o man did we have lots of fun, these two were super natural in front of the camera.  We started off the morning at L’auberge Del Mar and then made our way to some train tracks that I have been dying to shoot at for a while while ending on a hike at Torrey Pines State Beach where we’d end at the beach getting a little wet and sandy.  I always recommend saving the beach for the end of the shoot that way we can get as dirty as we need to and then its fine – plus that’s part of the fun anyway right??

This was a pretty hard shoot for me to pick a favorite….can you?  Let me know at the bottom of the post if you have any in particular you like or any other thoughts 🙂

These two will be back in August for their wedding and I know their wedding photos will be off the charts as well, can’t wait guys….see ya sooooon!


I love shooting at L’auberge – so many cool nooks and cranny’s and of course gorgeous landscaping…

Probably my favorite candids of the day – after Brian yelled “TRAIN!” so we all got off the tracks and moved our stuff we were standing there with it going by blowing our hair (well Desiree’s…) and I said screw it lets snap some photos this is pretty sweet!

This is me, laying on my stomach in the middle of the tracks….hey ya gotta do what ya gotta do to get the right angle!

Love the cliff backdrop on both of these….they sunny haze works for these shots in my opinion.

Love this B&W!!

They even decided to be brave and get in the water…it was cold so just a little bit 🙂

Playing in the water a bit and laying around getting sandy is almost a necessity for awesome beach photos, I am glad these two had no problems with that, as such we got some sweeeet shots like this one below.
