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.

Lacy Park and Walt Disney Concert Hall Engagement Session

This engagement session was taken around Los Angeles at Lacy Park, Walt Disney Concert Hall and LACMA. It was another special one to me. Linda and Tom are friends of mine and it’s a little different photographing someone you know personally. Photographers out there, you probably know what I’m talking about. You’re not trying to get to know the couple during the session, because you already know them, and you can read their body language more accurately than perhaps a couple you don’t know well. Most of all, communication is naturally open between you guys so you know exactly that they want.

Fun and Silly Family Portraits | Family Photography

Here’s a throwback to fun family session in Orange County. My favorite images from this set are of the mom and son! They’re so adorable and priceless :) These photos just remind me how valuable individual portraits of you and your child are. They do grow up fast! Having these memories to keep will allow you to cherish every step of the process and relive the moments as often as you’d like.

A Sweet Maternity | At-Home Lifestyle Session

This simple yet beautiful maternity session took place at the couple’s home and around their neighborhood and is especially special to me. This is my soon-to-be niece! The photoshoot authentically represents their daily life. We first started the session at home, then walked over to the toddler park right across the street, and finally visited the community center near their home.

At-Home Family Portrait Session | Lifestyle Photography

If you are looking for a either a unique session or one to truly showcase their beautiful family, a lifestyle at-home session is one for you! This reminds me of how I fell in love with photography. It was for the people and to capture their relationships along with all the touchy-feely stuff :) Of course, I often have to “pose” or direct my clients but only in such a way that feels natural to them.

THROW BACK! | ORANGE, CA MATERNITY SESSION

Going back to a simple and pretty maternity session at a park! Sometimes, the best things in life are simple, full of life, and unconditional, just like the photos below.

For some, a maternity session is a definite. Mommy-to-be’s know they want this experience to be documented and may already have ideas in mind. For others, this is completely new or
