John & Scott - Engaged!
An engagement session at Balboa Park in San Diego, CA
John and Scott came by my booth at the LGBT Life Wedding Expo in Hillcrest. I knew I was the right photographer for them when they started taking about everything they were looking for... and even more so after they started explaining their wedding plans! I'm so excited to photograph their wedding late next year! And I was really excited to photograph their engagement session! We started off at Balboa Park, but after realizing December Nights was happening later that day with all of the tents and stuff around, we decided to take off and take some pictures around Hillcrest. Two stop really... first at the same place where they had their first date, the Hillcrest Brewing Company! They weren't open yet so we took some photos outside. But I thought it was sweet they wanted to get some photos there - I love when a spot is meaningful like that. Then we stopped at the Hillcrest sign! I have been to Hillcrest more times than I can count, but I have never taken photos there! Pretty cute huh? These handsome guys are getting married at a beautiful venue in La Jolla next year and I can not wait for the big day! Congratulations on the upcoming wedding guys! And thank you for choosing Derek Chad Photography to document your big day!
