Maria is a girl that knows what she wants. When she sees something she likes, she knows it. Without question. Al is a quiet, thoughtful guy with a soft heart and a calm demeanor.
Al and Maria met one night in Little Italy while having cocktails at Craft & Commerce, and these two strangers had a fifteen minute conversation that changed everything. Suddenly, Al was the one that knew what he wanted. This girl was something special, and over the next six months, he quietly pursued the lovely, charming woman he met that night. They talked for long meandering hours over drinks, he took her on walks along the harbor, and they watched the sunset together over the city they both love.
His steady soul and sweet smile turned those casual hangouts into unforgettable evenings, and his persistence paid off. Maria realized that what she wanted was this kind man by her side for the rest of her life.
This San Diego couple stole our hearts the minute we met them both for drinks this summer, and we’ve been looking forward to their engagement session for MONTHS. Well, my friends, the day has finally come when we get to show off their gorgeous faces to the world!
We photographed these two in the neighborhood where it all started – the insanely cute and quaint Little Italy – then we took a walk along the harbor where these two took many walks when they were first dating.
How amazing is Maria’s stunning red dress and Al’s perfectly tailored navy suit? As soon as I saw them, I congratulated them both on officially NAILING their outfits!
Al & Maria: You two are just so SWEET. It’s impossible not to say ‘awwwww’ when I look through your images, and it’s only because you both have smiles that express infinite joy. Jeff and I adore you both and your wedding is going to be wonderful!
