The very first time that Hannah contact me through email and told me her story, that her fiancé is a deployed marine on Miramar base in La Jolla, and that she was coming in two weeks to San Diego on a last minute decision for the weekend!!!!
That she recently booked her wedding venue and was in need of new pictures for her save the dates. She also told me that she loved San Diego and that she was a beach girl at heart and that really would mean a lot to her.
With that in mind, I suggested Ponto Beach in Carlsbad, just 30 miles North of San Diego taking the Interstate 5. A very short ride, maybe without traffic :). Anyway, we went there 2 weeks later at a very beautiful evening with the sun coming in and out of the clouds. Hannah was desiring this beach theme pictures and even that was very coooold, she was braved wearing a dress and flip flops.
Here are a few of my favorites from their day.
