A wave crashed against the rocks on the shore and a few drops of water splashed onto Lauren and Campbell’s feet. They were oblivious to the water though, as they stood hugging and staring deep into each other’s eyes. The water swirled amongst the rocks as it receded from the shore in preparation for another incoming wave. Lauren and Campbell seemed frozen in time by comparison. We just loved doing these Laguna Beach engagement photos with Lauren and Campbell!
This shoot was great! We had so much fun capturing Lauren and Campbell’s engagement session! We had the privilege of shooting with them all over in the Newport Beach and Laguna Beach areas. The shoot started at Little Corona Del Mar beach and then worked our way up Poppy Ave. with all of its gorgeous houses and gardens. After that we drove down to Crystal Cove to do a few photos at the cutest little burger stand there, called Shake Shack (not connected to the chain of restaurants with the same name). And we finished the shoot up in Laguna Beach at Hotel Joaquin, where Campbell proposed to Lauren shortly after the hotel opened last year. The last thing we did was a few drone shots on the beach near Hotel Joaquin which ended abruptly.
Here’s a little behind the scenes footage from those drone photos at Shaw’s Cove…
Did you love these Laguna Beach engagement photos?
If you loved these photos and want to see more, then check out some of our other recent shoots!
Firstly, check out this amazing destination wedding in Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic with Kylie and Rick! Kylie and Rick’s wedding on the beach in Punta Cana was beautiful! Their wedding and this engagement shoot both have a very similar beach vibe. There’s something delightful about doing photos in the sand and water.
Secondly, check out this beautiful wedding in Hakone Gardens in California with Janice and Paul. Paul and Janice married a little further north than the Laguna Beach area, just outside of the San Francisco/San Jose area. Their wedding was so much fun and quite a change of scenery for us, which was great. We loved all of those redwood trees around the Hakone Gardens.
Also, check out this wonderful engagement shoot in New York with Adriana and Luke! This shoot took place on a rooftop in New York City with the Manhattan skyline behind the couple! It was so much fun to capture photos of these two!
Finally, check out this awesome engagement shoot in Chicago with Lily and Zack! This shoot was so much fun! Lily and Zack introduced me to so many awesome places in Chicago during this shoot which Steve and I still go back to visit every time we go to Chicago.
If you loved the photos in and around Hotel Joaquin, then you have to book a stay there! It’s so beautiful and in a great location! We were so fortunate they let us do photos there! It helped that we were with the first couple that got engaged there since they opened.
