Happy 2022! This year we kicked it off with a couples session down at the famous Laguna Beach, California. This lovely couple was looking for a Laguna Beach Engagement Photographer to photograph them towards the end of the year. However due to the rain storms that we had here in Southern California, we ended up rescheduling to 2022. It turns out that divine timing helped us for this particular couples session!
Why you may ask?
Our bride and groom got the most epic sunset for their session! The beautiful couple got to have the gorgeous backdrop of a natural sunset for their Couples Session at Victoria Beach. With the beauty of the beach nearby, as well as scenic hiking trails, our team took this as a chance of opportunity!
Wooded Trail Engagement Photos
Most parks and trails in Orange County regulate restrictions within the county to illicit permits. Down below is the link provided for those interested in researching the, “How To’s,” and, “Which Permit Options Are Available:”
After photoshooting around the trail scenic area for a little while, we headed over to the beach. We were hoping to catch the perfect ray of sunset for the engagement shoot that evening. Shooting near the sunset is an absolute dream! Not only does it provide optimal lighting and captures the perfect setting, it also helps boost couples’ chances of having some of the most esthetically pleasing photos. “Golden Hour,” is what most photographers refer to as during sunset timing in photography. We always want to implement this concept towards for the bride and groom during the session.
Victoria Beach Engagement Pictures
Some quick advice on shooting within Laguna Beach. For any new professionals and photographers out there: Check the tides! If the tides are choppy and unruly, it is best to go during low tide, since a lot of difficulty can arise! On the same note, be tedious on making sure to purchase a permit for shooting purposes once again. It is important to follow regulations and rules regarding permits. Nobody wants to be stopped and ruin a photoshoot session midway through the shoot at the beach, especially during low tides!
Laguna Beach Engagement Photographer
On a last note for any Laguna Beach Engagement Photographers: let clients know to bring comfortable shoes for the walk down so it would be easier for the shoot. The formal wear can be switched later on for tasteful purposes. Keep in mind, there are a myriad of options to choose from within the Laguna Beach location, so with the different number of options available be aware of weekdays as with less traffic surrounding your scenic background rather than weekends.
