Old Town San Diego is a great place for your engagement photography. It was the commercial center of San Diego until the 1860’s, and many of the buildings date back as early as 1820. We love to photograph engagement shoots here because of the interesting textures, scenic backdrops, and bright colors. The entire area is romantic and fun, and makes you feel like you’ve stepped back in time. On this particular Old Town engagement shoot, the theme was yellow and green! We started off at the charming Heritage County park is adjacent to Old Town in San Diego, and features several restored Victorian homes and the city’s first synagogue, The Temple Beth Israel. It is a fine example of the Victorian architecture of wealthy San Diego residents in the late 1880s-1890s. The Temple Beth Israel now hosts weddings, receptions and bar mitzvahs. Then we headed down to the charming shops and residences. In the central plaza, it’s fun to walk among the guides dressed in period costume, or enjoy impromptu concerts by local musicians. Afterwards, the two of you may want to stick around and enjoy the culinary delights, and indulge in a cold cerveza or margarita.
