Hey…remember these cool kids? Edgar and Eeva were such a fun couple to photograph, and we really enjoyed getting to know them. So we were really excited when their good friends, Lauren and Josh found us through them. Cool couples usually equal other cool couples!I think it’s so rad that Edgar (AKA DJ GarGar), will also be at Lauren and Josh’s wedding, not as just a guest, but also their DJ!
We had a great time hanging out with Lauren and Josh when they met with us to chat about their big day and had an equally nice time when we got together for their engagement session.
So the four of us set out on a little hiking adventure on a sunny San Diego autumn day in Balboa Park, a favorite place for these two to hang out and read a book and enjoy a glass of wine while they pass the time together.
Don’t recognize this part of Balboa Park? That’s because we stayed mainly off-the-beaten-path, as we love to do in general.It was a perfect place for Lauren to squeeze on up to her man!Their shared love of hiking and spending time together outdoors is a lovely thing! So we had to capture a little bit of them in their natural surroundings.Picnics in the park are always so much fun. What a great way to spend a sunny San Diego afternoon!*clinky*Josh really does know how to keep Lauren close and comfortable. Their giving spirit with one another most definitely shines through when they’re together!Josh is also pretty great at making Lauren laugh from time to time.Heading back to our cars for the next spot in the park, we had to do a few shots on the bridge that connects the trails to Balboa Park, across the 163 freeway, because it’s where the urban jungle and nature come together, and that’s kind of a cool thing in our book.
These two met in high school and reconnected several years later. You can definitely tell that they have a long history together and they’re kind of old souls. It’s like they’ve already known each other for a lifetime.
And, since the light was *thrilling* us, we stopped again. As we doWhen Lauren and Josh started dating, they spent many afternoons under these big, beautiful trees in Balboa Park enjoying time with each as well as a nice read.“Tell me a stoooorrry?”OK. Books down, more snuggle time, yes yes?And more delicious yummy afternoon light with this lovely couple!
And since they’re the perfect combination of urban meets love of nature, we decided to end the session overlooking downtown, surrounded by trees for a lovely sunset and twilight with the purr of rush hour traffic in the background
Lauren and Josh, thanks for joining us for a fun adventure! You two did a great job of loving on each other and sharing some laughs in front of our cameras. Can’t wait to hang out in April at Pala Mesa!
