Romantic La Jolla Styled Engagement Shoot

"The inspiration for this shoot came from wanting to create a very natural, organic and romantic Southern California feel, and what is more natural than various wooden elements, lots of greenery, and sea glass on a California beach?! Every detail, from the wooden sweet head table, to the wooden crate cake table, to the "wooden" stationery, to the breathtaking, organic floral was meticulously chosen to serve that purpose. In wanting to keep a very natural feel, we chose a color pallate consisting of ocean blue, gray, seafoam and ivory. These colors perfectly complemented the rocky beach backdrop, and helped maintain a very organic feel. While we wanted to create a very organic feel, we also wanted it to speak Southern California. Because SoCal is such a relaxed environment, we thought it only appropriate to have a create  "lounge" with oversized pillows -  no need for actual lounge furniture here! Because there are also beach cruisers everywhere, we wanted to tie that into our inspiration! We chose an older / vintage seafoam colored bike to fulfill this role and thought it only appropriate to fill the front basket with dreamy flowers!

In selecting a "models" for this day, we wanted to find a real couple that really wanted an engagement shoot. The couple, unfortunately, had to cut the engagement shoot out of the budget, and so this shoot meant so much to this lovely couple! They were both from the East Coast and are newer to San Diego. They LOVE Southern California, and since moving here have spent a lot of time in La Jolla, and are actually getting married in La Jolla this summer! The fact that we had chosen La Jolla for the shoot was a perfect fit for them, and a place that meant a lot to them. I cannot express how excited they were about the opportunity, and how much this day meant to them!" -Always Flawless Productions
