La Jolla Engagement Photos

La Jolla Engagement Photography San Diego

Tom & Steffi’s Beach Engagement Photos

One of the best photography locations in San Diego is the city of La Jolla. That is of course assuming you are the type of soon-to-be bride, groom, or San Diego wedding photographer who enjoys perfect weather and beautiful golden California light. That is why I was really stoked that Steffi and Tom decided on the La Jolla hiking trails for the location of their engagement session. And as all hiking adventures begin, this La Jolla engagement session started with my fat ass walking and snapping photos of these two much more physically fit lovers. In fact, Steffi and Tom compete in Iron Man triathlons, Spartan Races, and of course, recreational 10-mile ocean swims each morning they are in San Diego. Some would say they are quite ambitious with their physical fitness goals, but they told me it was just a way of life. I totally understand that dedication, but it is more in line with Taco Tuesdays and endless margaritas. Honestly, we cruised through the La Jolla trails then hit the beach for some photos on the sand and on an abandoned lifeguard tower. We laughed, we cried (okay we didn’t cry), but we did have an awesome time together. So I will STFU and let you check out some of Steffi and Tom’s La Jolla engagement photos in San Diego below!
