La Jolla Cove Engagement Session

SUPREETA & JAY

Locations:

  • First location: Gaslamp in San Diego, CA

 

La Jolla Cove engagement session photos:

Supreeta and Jay met a few years back online and they tell me it was love at first sight on their first date. Jay is from Chicago and Supreeta is from San Diego where the couple live and work together now. They are planning a three-day Indian wedding this summer over the 4th July weekend and I felt honored that they not only selected me to capture all the color and vibrancy of their special day, but also this La Jolla Cove engagement session.

Because Supreeta and Jay booked me online following a phone call, when I arrived with my wife Charlene in the Gaslamp Quarter of San Diego, it was the first time we met in person. We drove down the day before for a wedding in La Jolla and it was wonderful to extend the weekend to work with this loved-up couple.

Gaslamp engagement session photos:

The Gaslamp Quarter is packed with restaurants and boutiques, with a really vibrant feel, and we explored its alleyways looking for captivating backdrops. Supreeta and Jay decided to wear traditional Indian attire and I loved that they decided to incorporate this element of their culture into the e-session.

I photographed Supreeta leading Jay along a pedestrian crossing on famous 4th Street and walking arm-in-arm along the sidewalk, as well as a playful shot of her blowing a kiss to him in front of a blue wall. We also grabbed a shot of them embracing beneath the Gaslamp Quarter sign and one of Supreeta admiring her engagement ring in front of a rustic corrugated wall.

Belmont Park engagement session photos:

The couple then changed outfits and we drove to Belmont Park which is a small amusement park jutting into San Diego’s Mission Bay. It was really busy on this late Sunday afternoon, but we found plenty of settings for some fun, playful images.

I photographed Supreeta and Jay at some of the sideshow attractions and embracing in front of the roller coaster, and there was no denying how much fun they have together. Their playful personalities really shone through in these images and it was such a pleasure to be able to capture them.

La Jolla Cove engagement session photos:

We finished the afternoon at beautiful La Jolla Cove which is a few miles to the north, with Supreeta changing into a bright red dress and Jay into a classic white shirt and blue trousers. La Jolla Cove has some really dramatic, rocky outcrops covered in bright green lichen and we negotiated a few tricky sections to capture these images.

It was a bit cloudy so we didn’t get the sunset light we had hoped, but that didn’t put a dampener on the spirits of Supreeta and Jay as they embraced on the sands and played in the shallow waters of the Pacific Ocean.

La Jolla Cove engagement session photos:

It was a real pleasure getting to know Supreeta and Jay during this La Jolla Cove engagement session and they were such an easy-going couple to work with. I’m really looking forward to seeing them again for their Indian wedding later this summer and wish them all the best in their final preparations.
