Engagement Photos: Kitchen Canoodling

Two chefs, one love. Check out these darling in-home engagement pics that’ll make you wanna get in on some kitchen canoodling!

When Rachel and Ryan were scouting locations for their engagement photos, they knew they wanted the shoot to include the two things they both love most: cooking and their dogs. Ryan, now the chef at Encore in downtown San Diego met Rachel, now the pastry chef at Nine-Ten Restaurant & Bar at the Grande Colonial Hotel in La Jolla a little over 5 years ago when they were both working at Bertrand at Mister A’s. The spark was there, and it grew in time as the couple started hanging out more. But Rachel says it wasn’t until she met Ryan’s puppy, Indy, that really sealed the deal for her! Ryan proposed on New Year’s 2012 overlooking the city lights at Mister A’s, where it all began.

For their engagement photo shoot, they chose this special home in Del Cerro which provided a relaxing and fun vibe. Full of rich family history and memories, this is the home where Rachel’s mom and siblings were raised, and where one of her uncles presently resides. He will actually be the officiant at their upcoming June nuptials at Circle Oak Ranch in De Luz! Cheers, guys!
