Lauren and John made a quick trip out from Texas, where they currently reside, for their Laguna Beach engagement photos. Lauren’s a Laguna local so it was obvious we’d shoot in amazing locations. We explored downtown Laguna for a while and shot some great pictures in the alleys and against unique walls. We continued their Laguna Beach engagement session with some sunset pictures at the Montage Laguna Beach!
Downtown Laguna Beach Engagement Photos
Our first stop was downtown Laguna Beach. I’ve always loved the downtown area, with its amazing array of restaurants, shops and galleries.
I was enchanted with this location during my scout. The wall is unique, but the tree coming in and the strange planter create an interesting composition. And I love the way these two laugh together constantly!
The Montage Engagement Shoot
After we got some great material in downtown Laguna Beach, we headed over to the Montage, which Lauren specifically requested.
If you haven’t been to the Montage Laguna Beach, you really should. Gloriously perched above the ocean, the five-star resort is beautiful at every turn.
See? Always laughing!
The coastline in Laguna is something else. Perfect for a long shot of Lauren and John.
One of the things that appeals to me about the beach in front of the Montage are these amazing rock outcroppings. It’s such a different look than northern San Diego, where I’m from.
The golden light on this day was extra special.
Everything about this session was amazing–the colors, the light and, most importantly, my subjects.
LA and Orange County are home to many wonderful engagement shoot locations.
