La Jolla Cove Engagement – Sophia + Ryne

Meet Sophia + Ryne!

These two met when Sophia interviewed Ryne for a job. She is a health coach and hires other health coaches. Clearly, he got the job, and their relationship grew as they got to know each other through work. Now Ryne is doing his own thing as a successful software engineer, and Sophia has continued to pursue her passions for health and fitness as a wellness coach (check out what she is all about on her Instagram, here!).

When I asked Sophia what a perfect date with Ryne would look like she shared all about their love for the beach, their dogs, enjoying the beauty of San Diego, and snuggling up on the couch in their home with a movie.

“Our ideal day date is taking the dogs to the beach, then after going to grab a drink outside somewhere with the dogs, followed by a movie at home cuddled on the couch….. with wine :-)”

Ryne even proposed to Sophia on the beach as the sun was setting, so it was only perfect that we return to the coast to capture this season in their lives. We set out for an evening by the blue water in La Jolla Cove and explored all of the rocky cliffs and sandy beaches we could find in the area.

During our shoot, I learned that Sophia isn’t a big fan of birds. I didn’t realize it at the time when I asked them to go stand by all of these feathered friends at the very beginning of our afternoon together! Sophia posted this photo with the sweetest quote, so I had to share:

“Two of my biggest fears: birds and heights. With you I can conquer everything.”

One of my favorite things about this beach is the variety of vibes it has going on. We found this mini flower field on our way back up a cliff area with the perfect glowing light, so we snuck in a couple springtime shots, just for fun!


Sophia and Ryne are getting married at the gorgeous Circle Oak Ranch this September, and I’m looking forward to their ceremony under a giant oak tree, capturing their sweet love that shines through all of their photos, and documenting all of the fun they’re set out to create for their friends and family to enjoy. They are so selfless and excited to make their wedding all about having a good time for the people they love, so I can tell it’s going to be a good one.

Thanks so much for choosing me to capture it all for you two!
