Pre-Wedding Engagement Session in Orange County

Here is a throwback to one of my favorite engagement sessions! I love the locations, Santa Ana Courthouse and Laguna Beach, the couple chose along with their beautiful wardrobe. I also love the perfect balance between more editorial images and the natural, fun, candid smiles that our work is known for. The best of both worlds. Yaaassss!!!

Just check out the stunning attire and colors that contrast so well with the soft and elegant light at the courthouse and the beach. Hope this gives you some inspiration for your own engagement session. Don’t be afraid to try bold colors, a more formal attire, or even a second wedding dress! It’s all about having fun, going out of your comfort zone, and not be limited to any restrictions of wedding day :)

Engagement Session at Soka University | Orange County Photography

We cannot wait for Judy and Jason’s big day this weekend!! Here is a throwback to their engagement session at one of the most gorgeous and versatile locations in Orange County. Despite running behind to the session and hitting some unforeseen traffic, they were such troopers and we still had a great session!

Taking engagement photos at campuses are popular amongst couples who met at school. But university campuses are no longer just fitting amongst couples who share the same alma mater. Gorgeous campuses like Soka University are great options for portraits. It has a wide variety of backdrops that would usually have you driving from one location to another. Here are a few aesthetics of the campus that may help you consider this little gem :)

Downtown Santa Ana and Laguna Beach Engagement Session

Meet Josephine and Keith. Their engagement session started at downtown Santa Ana and ended in Laguna Beach. Downtown Santa Ana is very similar to the popular downtown Fullerton and many other downtown areas in OC. It has a sprinkle of unique textures all over the two block radius we roamed. The rustic alleyways, brick and stone walls, and architecture and romantic fountains, it’s the perfect place for our down-to-earth couple.

How To Use Your Engagement Photos

Engagements are one of my favorite sessions to photograph. It’s probably one of the very few, if not the first time, the couple has gotten their photos taken professionally. The jitters, the glow, the love shared between the couple at this very moment is unique and marks the beginning of many more in the future. Now, as I talk about all the great feels couples share I’m not dismissing the possible difficulties and struggles couples ALSO experience during this time. An engagement session is a great way to bring the couple together again and remind them what truly matters in all of this- each other.

Katrina & Steve | The Beginning of Happily Ever After

Steve proposed to Katrina at one of their favorite places, Disneyland! She had no idea it was coming. Steve made sure their best friends were there with them on the trip to the happiest place on earth and wanted to pop the question in front of the Sleeping Beauty castle. However, there were too many crowds (and was quite nervous!) so he asked in the less crowded area near a bridge to the side of the castle. The proposal was...
