A Cloudy Sunset Cliffs Engagement in Ocean Beach San Diego I always say it, but I truly get to work with the best clients in the world, and Alyssa and Jared are no exception. Watching the forecast leading up to their engagement session, with all the rain going on the past couple months, I was so afraid that another one of my sessions would once again be rained out. Fortunately, I lucked out with just overcast skies and very slight drizzle, the most gracious couple ever, and their two adorable dogs.

From the very beginning of our first video meeting, I knew Laura was exactly the type of bride I wanted to work with – her personality, her vision for their wedding, and just overall kindheartedness that she radiated.
