Balboa to Coronado, Bikes & City Lights – Lo An & Eric’s Engagement Session2:16 PM
Ladies and gentlemen, this is a cool one. I met with Lo An and Eric a few months before their engagement session and right off the bat the ideas were strong. We spent the afternoon at Balboa Park which used to be one of my most frequented photo grounds so I definitely wanted to capture the space differently than seasons passed. Sorta like re-imagining a familiar space, ya know? They made it easy for me though; together with Lo An’s entourage the five of us explored the park like tourists: hanging out, avoiding crowds, and taking in the sights.
After roaming Balboa, Eric and Lo An rode off on their bike to Coronado but not before we snapped a series of ADORABLE photos on the bridge. Traffic was kind to us that day so we got to the beach at exactly sundown. And while beach photos are classically beautiful, I felt challenged to elevate the concept with city lights, rich magenta-graded sky, and textured crashing waves. I think it worked. =)
