Downtown San Diego Engagement
Roman and Zlatka

Zlatka is a gorgeous girl that likes to research her options. When making a decision, she will look into every possibility and exhaust the research in order to make her final choice.

But there are a couple of things that didn't take much research. Her ring and her man.

Because Zlatka is also a gorgeous girl that knows the best thing when her heart sees it.

And Roman is the best thing. He treats her with care, he respects her incredibly brilliant mind, he understands her heart, and he deeply loves all of the little things that make her so unique. So her.

So when it came time to propose, he thought about popping the question in front of the Bellagio fountains on a trip to Vegas. But it just wasn't them. It was too public. It wasn't the best he could give the love of his life.

So instead, he packed a secret overnight bag and surprised her with a helicopter tour down to the Guadalupe Valley in Mexico. They spent the day wine tasting and the evening dining on the beach of Ensenada where he asked the best question he could ever ask in a way that was perfectly them - would she spend the rest of her life with him?

These two city-lovers have spent the last seven years together, and many of those years were spent living in east village of downtown San Diego. So a classic, elegant downtown engagement session was a no brainer for Roman and Zlatka!

First, we walked around our favorite streets of the Gaslamp, capturing the essence of our incredible city before zipping up to the rooftop of the Hotel St. James at sunset - a little known rooftop that's a total gem!

But honestly, what I love about this session the MOST is that it feels like we could be in any other world city, but we're in the amazing city of San Diego - the place that we get to call home. And that's simply magical.
