Below are some of our favorite portrait session location recommendations.
We love photographing an engagement session because it is lot of fun.
Second, engagement sessions are a great way to get to know each other a little more before your wedding.
It’s a chance to see how we work together, and it helps make you the couple more comfortable in front of the camera on your wedding day.
There are a few things to think about when choosing a location for your session.
Always, pick a location that fits your personality.
I've found throughout the years that couples are usually most comfortable in settings that make sense for who they are.
As residence of OC, we have quite a few selections to choose from like the beach, the mountains, architectural buildings in LA, parks and gardens.
If you’re having trouble thinking of a location, there are many suggestions listed below that might be of interest to you.
Another important thing to think about is what time of day and whether a weekday or weekend would be best for the location that you choose.
Also, if you want to shoot at the beach, I highly recommend capturing those photos on a weekday to minimize large groups of people in the background, especially during the spring and summer.
If scheduling your shoot on a weekday isn't an option, I would recommend scheduling your engagement session bright and early at sunrise on a weekend so we can take advantage of the beautiful light while also reducing the possibility of having large groups of people in the background.
Keep in mind that some of the locations listed below might require a permit to photograph on the premises and some locations I don’t photograph at during the summer because of crowds or heat.
