San Diego, California
Jon and Karen are my favorite type of people to photograph. By this I mean they wanted to start the engagement photo session at a local watering hole so we could first talk over some drinks. So we chose a spot that was near and dear to their hearts called the Waterfront Bar which actually happens to be one of the oldest taverns in San Diego. It also happens to be where Jon and Karen first met. See, what many people probably do not know about Jon is that he has a deep love for karaoke and whenever he has the opportunity to blast out some 1980s hits he is downtown Julia Brown. But when he showed up at the Waterfront on this hot August night in 2003 he saw Karen singing Duran Duran’s mega hit “Hungry like the Wolf”. That night Jon was indeed hungry, hungry for hot sweaty love. The two began talking, the laughs became contagious, Jon finished his third IPA and the two exchanged numbers. Now Jon and Karen are engaged and set to get married later this May. Below are some of the photographs from our day in downtown San Diego, California.
