It was such an honor to photograph Kacie & Nick at the beautiful Rancho Valencia in Rancho Santa Fe! When they first reached out about their engagement session, they wanted to find a location that was full of rich greenery and had a tropical look – this property instantly came to mind. I love all of the incredible textures, secret paths, and warm colors around each corner.
After dating for 4 years, Nick planned a trip for Kacie’s birthday to San Francisco in the fall of 2015. On a chilly bay area morning, Nick got down on one knee and completely surprised Kacie with a ring at the Palace of Fine Arts! Nick is without of a doubt, a thoughtful and caring guy. With his work as a Sheriff, he knows the true meaning of sacrifice. Kacie loves going on adventures, her close relationships and laughing at Nick’s humor. They love going on dates to Temecula wine country and around San Diego. It was fun seeing how Kacie incorporated personal details into their engagement session to share their story. They’re both from San Diego and love everything tropical so having pineapples was the perfect touch! Enjoy this gorgeous venue and the love that these shine when they’re together!
