Capturing Elegance: A Photoshoot at The Lafayette Hotel in San Diego

Photoshoot at The Lafayette Hotel San Diego.

Nestled in the heart of San Diego, amidst the vibrant streets and palm-lined avenues, stands an iconic gem of timeless elegance -- The Lafayette Hotel. Steeped in history and sophistication, this historic landmark serves as a picturesque backdrop for unforgettable moments. Recently, I had the pleasure of embarking on a photoshoot adventure within the confines of The Lafayette Hotel, where every corner whispered tales of bygone eras and every stylish detail begged to be immortalized.

The versatility of the hotel's ambiance provided endless opportunities for creativity, whether it was a glamorous portrait session in the opulent halls, or a whimsical session at the poolside oasis. Each frame captures the vintage-inspired furnishings perfectly.

The recent remodel completed by the CH Project hospitality group truly honors the past while still inviting a new generation to come and enjoy the property. For couples looking to host their wedding at this breathtaking venue, the Mississippi Ballroom can hold between 120 to 150 guests. If you haven't had a chance to visit for dinner or drinks or spend a day at the pool, I highly recommend it. You'll fall in love. The Lafayette Hotel is the perfect backdrop for bold couples with a sense of flare.

I had the pleasure of dreaming up with project with a good friend and fellow wedding vendor, Kylie, of KBady Photography. As San Diego locals, we both knew of the hotel's renovation and were eager to get inside and have an opportunity to work there Our vision was to infuse the classic allure of 1960s glamour with a modern twist, all the while embracing the opulent aesthetics of the hotel's maximalist design. No photoshoot is complete without a team of talented individuals working together to help achieve our goals. We were lucky to partner with amazing local vendors who shared our passion for creating visually captivating experiences.
