Being a couple that is constantly ready for the adventure, Nhan and Todd couldn’t wait to get started on their Torrey Pines Engagement Session. Located in San Diego, Torrey Pines is one of the most spectacular stretches of land on the Southern California coast. With its vast landscapes, wide variety of vegetation, and countless ocean views, it truly is one of the best locations for engagement photos.
Nhan and Todd are magic in front of the camera. Every moment was effortless and natural. I couldn’t take my camera off them for one second out of fear of missing something great. We spent almost two hours roaming around Torrey Pines using every inch of the landscape as our backdrop. We played on the beach, set up some epic shots and flat rock, and climbed back up the mountain to grabbed some romantic shots on the cliffs. Everything about this day was perfect.
Torrey Pines Engagement Session Tips
If you’re considering doing a Torrey Pines engagement session, there are a few things to consider. First, the weather is very unpredictable. I suggest scheduling your session for first thing in the morning to get that beautiful dewy morning light, or picking a weekday and visit in the evening to capture iconic views of the coastline during sunset.
If you are looking to take pictures on the flat rock, keep track of high and low tide. Torrey Pines is littered with trails that go in several different areas of the reserve. It can be helpful to print out a map and plan your route if you need to keep to a schedule. Also, parking can be a bit of a pain here because it’s such a popular location. There are two paid parking lots at the park and limited free spots along the street. Keep in mind if you pay to park in the reserve it’s a $20 dollar fee.

A California based photographer keeping it real and capturing all the perfect moments. Hey! My name is Teresa. Between my large Sicilian family, crazy friends and animated boyfriend, I have a tremendous amount of nicknames. SO we will go with Teresa for now but feel free to get creative once we get to know each-other. I was born and raised on the Central Coast in the small town of Templeton, lived in LA during my early 20’s and then spent about 6 years in New York. I’m now back in CA and loving every moment. All I can say is sunshine and tacos, but I do miss bagels and pizza. I love to travel, be outside, cycle and discover new places, eat ice cream and enjoy a cheeseburger, french fries and an ice cold beer tremendously. I’m pretty damn normal, easy to be around and love to laugh around new company. If you are ready, I am ready. Let’s dive in! www.teresalojacono.com
