Downtown San Diego Engagement
Jason and Carissa

Jeff and I have been shooting from rooftops quite a bit lately and today we get to feature Jason and Carissa's engagement session on top of the St. James Hotel! I love when a couple chooses a location for their engagement session that is both beautiful AND meaningful. The rooftop of the St. James Hotel has always been a special place for city-lover Carissa. For her, the bustle and noise of the city isn't distracting - it's incredibly relaxing. So sitting above the streets on the St. James rooftop was always a mental and spiritual retreat where she could go to escape the craziness of life. And now she gets to share this special place with the love of her life!  A huge thanks goes out to the St. James Hotel for allowing us to shoot up there and to Jason and Carissa for coordinating everything!Isn't San Diego dreamy? The only thing more dreamy than the downtown skyline is Jason and Carissa's adorable connection.San Diego engagement session, downtown San Diego engagement session, St. James Hotel engagement session,
