La Jolla Engagement Session | Nikki + Austin

This La Jolla engagement session with Nikki and Austin was so much fun! We stopped at two gorgeous locations and they even brought along their sweet Corgi so she could join in on some photos.

We started the evening at the La Jolla “Secret Swing” because it is a special location to them with an incredible view. I was so excited when Nikki first mentioned this place to me because I had never been there even though I have lived in San Diego for fifteen years! I had seen other photos of it in the past so when I did some research and realized how easily accessible it was I was shocked! It is so peaceful up there and you really can’t beat the view of the water.

After spending some time on the swing and its surrounding trails, we hopped in the car for a quick five minute drive down to the beach. We were greeted with overcast skies and high tide but that didn’t stop these two from getting their feet wet. I always love it when couples are down to play in the water a little bit at their beach sessions!

I love the way a hazy sunset makes the water and sand so colorful and reflective! Sometimes the bright, direct sun can be really harsh so when there are some clouds filtering the light it makes everything look so much softer!

I am so in love with this La Jolla engagement session and I cannot wait for Nikki and Austins wedding next year at one of the coolest venues I may ever photograph: The Safari Park! Austin is a veterinarian so it’s only fitting for them to get married there! It’s going to be epic and I can’t wait to hang with these two love birds again!
