This darling couple spent a quiet morning cozied up at San Marcos Lake for their oh-so-adorable e-sesh. Complete with donuts and J. Crew pajamas, the talented Carmen Santorelli Photography was behind the lens and snapped up plenty of romance. From lakeside kisses to a formal attire stroll in the desert, every picture is dreamier than the last. Cozy on up to the full gallery for more!
From The Bride... Jason and I are San Francisco residents, but our love story began in San Diego. It only made sense for us to incorporate it in a special way, which is why we chose to do our wedding / engagement shoot there. We wanted the shoot to feel fun, playful, and maybe even surprising; thus, pajamas and donuts outdoors was something that was easily agreed on! Carmen, our photographer, is owed the credit for suggesting the dock by the lake. Per her suggestion we chose San Marcos Lake as our location. We also wanted to do something with formal-wear in a contrasting setting and the San Marcos Lake area kindly obliged with its desert-like surroundings. We're not an overly "cutesy" couple, so I loved the way Carmen was able to capture our not-so-mushy personalities and the less traditional nature of the shoot while still giving them a romantic vibe!
