Don and Shauna – A sunny San Diego engagement session
Ok, these two are kinda cute. Don really liked Shauna, like a lot. To be honest who doesn’t like Shauna? The girl is the sweetest to work with ( I knew Shauna and Don when we worked together a long time ago in South Lake Tahoe) and she was always amazingly helpful. Don and Shauna both moved separately down to San Diego for work. Don was a smart man and started talking to the nicest girl he knew in San Diego. Fast forward to today and you have two kids who grew up in the openness of Tahoe, and ended up at gorgeous beaches with the vastness of the ocean at their fingertips. One thing to note is these two love tennis. Shauna’s grandparents, mother and sister play all play and her grandparents even recently were winning tennis championships. Don and Shauna play every week together so it was fitting to start by playing a game on Mission Bay. Mission Bay and Mission Beach is also where this relationship started. More about that in a little.
After the bit of tennis and a couple shots with Don’s MG Midget we were off to SRP. That is San Rafael Place where these two started dating. It was where Shauna had an amazing house a block from the beach and bay. Who wouldn’t want to be hanging out there.
The last place we stopped was at Hermosa Park in La Jolla. This is around the corner from their old apartment together. It was where they watched the sunset many evenings. Where they could go to escape with each other. It was their place to relax and just be with each other. I can not blame them for going there all the time. If I had a view like this I would be there almost every day as well taking in such a beautiful place.
Lisa and I could not be more excited about sharing in your beautiful Tahoe Wedding this fall. It means a lot that we will be there. It has been a lot of fun seeing you two grow as a happy, fun and inspiring couple. I love that you shared all of this with me. Also a special thanks to Joel Berti for being my assistant on the first engagement session I have photographed without Lisa.
