If you love adventure, seeing views that you probably have never seen before, and iconic San Diego locations, we think you’ll adore Mark and Shea’s Hotel Del Coronado engagement session. With their session at both their wedding location, the Hotel Del Coronado, and one of their favorite places in San Diego, Balboa Park, this is sure to be an engagement session you won’t want to miss out on seeing!
After meeting in grad school, Shea and Mark just clicked. And nearly five years later, it’s clear to anyone who sees them why they make an incredible couple. Whether it’s the way they share a love of adventure or how kind and caring they are towards not only each other, but to everyone around them, Mark and Shea just seem to fit together perfectly.
One of our particularly favorite parts of including our engagement sessions in our wedding packages is how well we get to know our couples. Whether it’s forming a relationship so we can get to know exactly the kind of photos they love, or the story of how they first met, it’s one of the best parts of our journey with our couples!
Getting to know Shea and Mark better during this incredible Hotel Del Coronado engagement session, we got to see exactly what made them such an incredible couple– and why we are so lucky to have them as a Clove & Kin couple!
Whether it was them walking around Balboa Park and talking about the beautiful architecture, telling us things about the style and why they loved it, or how they ran around the rocks on the beach while we shot their Hotel Del Coronado engagement session, there wasn’t a moment they weren’t happy and laughing. It was incredible getting to see how comfortable with exploring and how quickly they were able to relax in front of the camera.
And what better way to experience one of the first times being up in the turret than with a couple that says exploring new locations is one of their favorite things to do together!
One of the most incredible things about getting married at the Hotel Del Coronado is the chance to get to go up into one of the most famous locations in San Diego– the Hotel Del Coronado Turret. As Shea and Mark walked up the stairway to the top of the turret, they noticed that there were sections of walls covered by dozens and dozens of signatures of the couples who had gotten married there prior to them.
A beautiful memento to the love shared and memories by the couples who had been married there, it made this Hotel Del Coronado engagement session even more memorable. Getting to celebrate these two and photograph them in a location where so many had made their mark before getting married was a truly magical experience that we wouldn’t trade for the world.
Shea and Mark– thank you so much for letting us explore a new place alongside you– and for letting us be a part of your journey. We absolutely adored capturing every moment of your Balboa Park and Hotel Del Coronado engagement session– and loved getting to know you even more! We can’t wait to help you savor every moment of your wedding!
If you loved Balboa Park, we think that you’ll absolutely adore Ally and Kyle’s super sweet Balboa Park Engagement Session. If you can’t wait till Shea and Mark get married to see how incredible Hotel Del Coronado is, we think you’ll love seeing Kiki and Keith’s wedding and how they managed to incorporate Kiki’s favorite color into their big day!
