If you are a San Diego Photographer, chances are, you have been down to Coronado Beach in San Diego! Known for its stunning views and gorgeous beaches, this makes a perfect location for any type of photoshoot that you are wanting!

Not only is Cornado filled with stunning beaches, but it is also home of one of the most famous hotels, Hotel Del Coronado!

So, now that we know just how dreamy this location is, I turn your attention to the beautiful Michelle and her handsome fiance Tyler!!!

It literally was one of the most beautiful days in San Diego for their engagement photos! The minute I saw Michelle, I had to ask her if she got her dress from Lulus, which is one of the websites I always recommend for engagement photos dresses, and she said yes! I knew then that I wanted to create MOVEMENT in their photos, with this beautiful dress!

Michelle and Tyler are like so many couples in the last few years. They got engaged! They started planning their wedding! The world shut down!!

I know as we are now in the middle of 2022, that you would “think” that there are still couples that were affected by the pandemic and their wedding plans had to shift! If you don’t think so, I still have couples that were supposed to get married in 2020 that won’t get married till 2023! CRAZY!

But, through it all, Michelle and Tyler have helped on to that love for one another, and this year, they will say their “I DO’s ” in front of their friends and family!
