san diego pet engagement photos by la vida creations photography

Meet Trixy! And of course, her parents, Tina and Junior 🙂
We enjoyed a beautiful afternoon around the waterfront with this sweet family as we photographed the three of them for Tina and Junior’s engagement photos, which naturally had to include their four-legged furchild, Trixy. couple sits along waterfront at seaport village in san diego

One of their favorite activities is hanging out at this Greek restaurant along the bayfront in Seaport Village with sweet lil’ Trixy at their feet. Pretty amazing view from their towards Coronado and Point Loma, for sure. I think all three of them like it there a lot! engaged couple sits with their pittie rescue dog along the bay in san diegoman looks across at his fiancé along waterfront bay seaport villageclose up of engaged couples hands touching one another with love

Trixy was a REALLY good girl during the engagement session—even if she did get a little bored for a minute or two. Or maybe she was just waiting for a possible Gyro piece to fall her way. san diego pet photography of pitbull rescue dogcouple laughs together having fun during their engagement photos by la vida creations

Great views, casual hang out time, watching seagulls, and a little ice cream sounds like the perfect cherry on top of the sundae! couple shares ice cream at seaport village for their san diego engagement photos

“Where’s MINE?! Nom. Nom. Nom. Nom.”
Oh, Trixy! Not a beggy dog at all, but definitely keeping her eye out—just in case! guy feeds fiancé ice cream at seaport village while their pet dog Trixy watchescouple giggles and has fun feeding each other ice cream

No, seriously, how sweet are these two? Definitely a family of three here. groom sweetly sweeps bride

Don’t worry… I think the only one who may have heard your secret was Trixy. But she’s good for it! sweet pitbull pup smiles as parents snuggle during their san diego engagement photos sweet pet pitbull looks right up at camera as parents kiss in san diego beautiful pitbull dog hams it up during san diego engagement photos

So much love <3sweet family snuggles with pittie during their san diego engagement photos

Now, to be fair, we must admit we have a few tricks up our sleeves for sessions with the pups. If you think that’s an intense look, it’s because Trixy was doing exactly what she was supposed to and anxiously *but patiently* awaiting her reward. GOOD GIRL!!! cropped photo of engaged couple holding hands with pittie pet dog in their laps

Love it when we get a little puffy cloud goodness in San Diego! Those coastal breezes often blow out the cloud formations, but we had a little cooperation from Mother Nature this afternoon. YES! couple walks with pet pitbull dog along the waterfront of the bay in San Diegocouple laughs as they casually walk along boardwalk of the bay during their engagement photos

Yep. Definitely their happy place 🙂 couple looks out on the ocean during their seaport village engagement photos
Time to concentrate on just Tina and Junior for a bit and release the canine talent to get more of her beauty rest and recover from her time in the spotlight. The four of us headed over to Little Italy for some great urban settings. One of our favorite neighborhood to photograph in San Diego! urban doorway in Little Italy with beautiful couple laughing together

Great doorways (which you KNOW I’m obsessed with!), pops of color, and great textures. All of these things make me do a happy dance. Then you add a sweet couple into the mix having a great time and I *might* get a bit spastic about it all! candid moments of couple laughing during their little italy engagement photos

Yep. Kind of lost in their own world. We love seeing that unfold during a session!

These two were pros at this point in the session! So perfectly at ease and owning it like a BOSS. Thank you Hollywood Breeze for giving us a little movement and fun there 🙂rustic urban backdrop as this engaged couple laughs together during their little italy engagement photosbride whispers sweet and intimate secret into fiancé

More snuggles and minimalist backgrounds to make sure all the attention is on the love and connection. engagement photos with couple against minimalist backdrop of cement slate in san diegoman wraps arms around fiancé and squeezes during their san diego engagement photos man makes woman laugh during their san diego little italy photo session

Tina manages the Chez Rouge Salon in Normal Heights (and is also a stylist) which explains her amazing hair and makeup. Love, love, love that purple goodness! Actually, both Tina and Junior run their families’ businesses, which is super great! close up of bride

Something about this quiet and still moment during a light test that just grips me. LOVE. couple holds hand in the last minutes of daylight along the san diego bay

And the twilight grand finale at the San Diego County Building! Whoop!
Thank you, Tina and Junior, for spending the afternoon with us, opening up in front of our cameras, and letting us fawn over Trixy like the crazy dog people we are. We had a great time with you two and you did a fabulous job! Looking forward to celebrating your love this Fall! couple kisses after sunset in little italy for their engagement photos
