The Power of a Rain Shower: Alexander & Kimberly’s Stunning San Diego Engagement Session

ON 21, April 2017


From chirping birds to budding blooms, there’s just something about spring that feels like a new beginning. The best part? This season sets a beautiful scene for engagement photography!

Alexander and Kimberly showed us exactly why the season is one to capture everlasting love. This adorable duo took to the outdoors for their engagement session and headed to San Diego’s Paradise Falls. This natural beauty boasts eight acres of a jungle-like greenery and lush bamboo. There’s also a hidden garden with a flowing waterfall! Talk about about an enchanting backdrop!

While visions of blue skies and sunshine may come to mind, don’t forget about those April showers. Alexander and Kimberly showed us their love can weather (no pun intended!) anything - rain or shine. In their case, raindrops were falling during their shoot and it couldn’t have been more romantic.

We’ll let you in on a little tip: Drizzles and gray skies make for the most remarkable engagement photos! And so does the use of engagement props - in this case, umbrellas!

The engagement photographer captured different angles and poses- from close-up gaze to scenic strolls between the bamboo stalks - swoon!

Forecast and scene aside, we can’t forget about the fashion choices! Kimberly opted for a white, bohemian dress - a top trend for engagement photography. She completed her look with charcoal booties, which added some edge to her look. Alexander looked charming in a navy blue button down and added a pop of color with bright red suspenders.

Alexander and Kimberly showed us that whatever Mother Nature decides to throw our way can actually be a playful bonus. Worried it may rain on your wedding day? We’ve got you covered - literally and figuratively! Here are some tips on how to handle rain on your big day.
