I met with this lovely couple in a gorgeous location on a sunny Sunday afternoon in Laguna Beach for their engagement photos in Orange County California. The soon-to-be-bride had contacted me about doing an engagement session and she told me that she had wanted to do beach engagement photos, but she was afraid it would be too cold. We had just had a terrential downpour the weekend prior (the only rainfall we’ve had all year!) and the weather had been really bad after having 80 degree temps all of January and most of February! I guess that’s just the upside of living in Southern California. 🙂 So I checked the weather and for the date we were talking about it was going to be around 80 degrees! Ahhhh, perfect! I informed her that the weather would be nice for beach pictures, and so we decided to do that.
The day we met for the session was absolutely gorgeous! It was warm, sunny, blue skies, I mean just gorgeous! I don’t live near the beach, so it’s a little bit of a drive, but it really made me question why on earth I don’t go to the beach more often! Oh right, southern California traffic…
Well for stuff like this, it’s totally worth it. The beach was full, of course, but we managed and found a great spot with a little less crowd and more privacy. We had so much fun, I was grateful that they endured my cheesy jokes, lol. What can I say? If I want my couples to feel natural and have fun I just have to throw in some cheesiness. 🙂 They were really so down to earth, willing to do whatever I asked them. They are seriously so adorable and I’m thrilled I was able to capture the love they share!
I am so grateful that they chose me to take their photos. They will be having a very small intimate civil ceremony, which I am really looking forward to being a part of as well.
Here are a few of my favorites from their session!
