A love for the beach drew San Diego-residing Katie and Ryan to Scripps Pier for their engagement shoot photographed by Holly Ireland. The couple run the regional family magazine San Diego North County Kids and Ryan is a firefighter, so their connection to the San Diego community is undoubtedly strong. They decided to start the day at a relatively secluded tree patch in La Jolla before catching the sunset at Scripps Pier. Between the natural setting, sunset hues and Katie's perfect ensembles, this shoot is a great example of laid-back sophistication.Stay tuned in the next couple of weeks for this lovely couple's wedding photos!Add to favorites Leave a Comment

This real wedding, set on the greens of the Shadowridge Golf Club in Vista and captured by Holly Ireland Photography, features a laid-back couple, flower-filled outdoor ceremony, and one very important guest of honor.
On the scale of carefree to crazy, Marina and Josh were more than stress-free when their big day arrived. "The whole day was fun and relaxed," says their wedding photographer Holly Ireland. "I wish more weddings were like that. No stress, no family drama just love and fun!" And since they opted not to have an engagement shoot, they instead requested a post-wedding photo session in their wedding attire—along with their horse! "This was a dream shoot for us. Beautiful couple with a beautiful horse at an amazing ranch. What could be better?"
Take a look at their wedding on the greens:

It is officially engagement season everyone! To kick off the season of dazzling diamonds, doe-eyed lovers, and swoon worthy photographs we are featuring an engagement photo shoot where one local couple's shoes tell their love story.
Ashley was a professional ballerina who has danced with many leading ballet companies across America. Zach is in the military and is a southern boy at heart, he was even known to say "Yes Ma'am" frequently during the shoot. We think that this duo couldn't be cuter! They selected the Leo Carrillo Ranch in Carlsbad for their photo session because it is rustic and packed with natural beauty, much like the couple themselves. Hopefully we will have pictures of their wedding later this year!
