There are few things that can drag me away from watching my daughter play soccer, especially the quarterfinal match at State Cup. One such thing is Orange County engagement photography with an amazing couple in two fantastic locations. My first stop with Cassandra and Jon was Caspers Wilderness Park. Located on the southern edge of the Cleveland National Forest, the Park is a slice of solitude in otherwise chaotic Orange County. The light was dreamy on this particular afternoon, streaming through the winter haze and large oak trees. Cassandra's wardrobe choice was spot on, the perfect contrast to the monochromatic tones of the Park.
For the next location I wanted something with less texture and more subtlety. So we headed west to one of my faves, Salt Creek State Beach. A nice layer of cloud cover had come in, which, combined with the salt spray of the ocean, created this gorgeous misty light, perfect for some moody, black and white images.
