Megs and Leif’s San Diego Safari Park engagement session was so much fun to be apart of! As soon as I met this sweet couple, I was overwhelmed with how sweet and warmhearted they both are. Their engagement session was the epitome of who they are – which is exactly what an engagement session should be about. 

This was my first time shooting a couple’s session at a zoo and let me tell you… it was a vibe. I feel like so many couples go to the zoo at some point in their relationship. Keeping your relationship fun and playful makes such a difference. Megs and Leif were in truly their element as we wandered around the Safari Park. Not only did we get to hang out with the lions, tigers, and elephants (oh my 😉)… but also RIDE THE CAROUSEL! Have I mentioned that I have the best job ever?! 

If you and your honey have ever contemplated having a fun, unique engagement session… take this as your sign! Meg and Leif’s San Diego Safari Park engagement session will definitely convince you if it hasn’t already.
