Amidst a landscape paved with strip malls and convenience stores, sits a gem that harkens back to the beginning of civilization as we know it in California. This gem is called Mission San Juan Capistrano, and it was the first location for Lauren and Robert's Orange County engagement photography. The Mission is in wonderful condition and the management are surprisingly easy to deal with. The textures and color palate of the Mission made for wonderful elements to be incorporated into the images. After we'd had enough California history, we headed to a beacon of new development, the Montage Laguna Beach. Tastefully architected and without the grandiosity one sees at resorts of similar exclusivity, the Montage--and the Pacific--made for a wonderful environment in which to finish Lauren and Robert's engagement shoot.
Lauren and Robert are getting married later this year at Seven Degrees in Laguna Beach. I'm thrilled to be working with them and can't wait for the wedding!
