It’s exciting to share Monica and Duane’s Catalina Island engagement photos, taken the day before their wedding at the Wrigley Memorial.
With so many great engagement photos spots in Southern California, its easy to forget how wonderful Catalina Island is! For instance, Catalina has really diverse terrain. In addition, there’s the cute streets and buildings of Avalon and the pier. Furthermore, Catalina has wild locations with amazing views. Every location is within walking distance or a short drive.
Catalina Island Engagement Photos : Downtown Avalon
We begin our shoot roaming the streets of Avalon. There are so many wonderful places to shoot Catalina Island engagement photos! There are very few cars in Avalon (although lots of golf carts!), so roaming the streets is super easy!
I love this green door underneath the arch. Down on the beach there are tons of spots, too! For example, this large, green lifeguard chair makes the perfect backdrop for these two!
Along Casino Way, Monica and Duane stop for a quiet moment. With Duane’s hairstyle and Monica’s classic beauty, doesn’t this image look like it could be from the 1950s?
Catalina Island Engagement Photos : Casino
It wouldn’t be a Catalina Island engagement photo shoot without a stop at the Casino! The Casino was built in 1929 to mark the 10-year anniversary of William Wrigley’s purchase of the island. In its heyday, the Casino was the gathering place dinner and dancing for the millions of people that made the 26-mile journey.
I love shooting on the jetty that comes off Casino Point because it allows me to get an angle that looks back toward the Casino and other parts of Avalon.
Continuing back toward Avalon, Duane and Monica stop for a kiss with the harbor as a gorgeous backdrop!
Catalina is super easy to get to on the Catalina Express! There are regular trips to Avalon and Two Harbors from Dana Point. In addition, you can travel out of the ports in Long Beach and San Pedro.
