The first location was Vin De Syrah in San Diego – one of my favorite bars from my time in SD. We rented the place when it was closed to the public so we the whole venue to ourselves! The coordinator there was so great! She put on our favorite music for us and gave us champagne – so much fun!
The second location was Balboa Park – also in San Diego. The park is HUGE and has so many areas to take pictures in so we basically got four or five locations in one place! Braja knew the park very well so she suggested areas within the park to take photos. I looked online to see areas that I wanted to take pictures but didn’t need to mention any of them since Braja took us to the best places!


Braja was an absolute delight to work with! She put us at ease, was so knowledgeable about the area and made the whole day so fun!

My hair and makeup was done by the most amazing Linh Nguyen from Dolled up by Lulu. That was the third time she’d done my hair and makeup and every time it looked amazing!
