The first (of THREE) dates we had scheduled for Audrey and Chris’ urban Little Italy engagement portraits resulted in a mini portrait session at Ironside, followed by delicious soup and cocktails… Well, no complaints there! Then we set our sights ahead for the ultimate full session once we could count on a non-rainy day with some pretty San Diego sunshine to play with.

You see, Audrey had a major flying phobia and Chris was instrumental in helping her overcome her fear. I absolutely loved that story and that they wanted to bring that into their documentary engagement story. I love a good challenge!

I thought that story was such a perfect example of how we all push our partners to grow and evolve and vice versa. That’s teamwork and true love, my friends.
