Laguna Beach Engagement Photos

Frank & Tori booked me for an elopement in Washington, but they wanted to get some engagement photos done beforehand. So since they live in southern California, we thought Laguna Beach engagement photos would be a great fit. Laguna is known for its great beaches, conservation areas, & even some nice downtown areas. While we were were hoping for sunny weather, spring can be a bit gloomy with the marine layer along coastal areas in southern California. But we made the best of it! We started with some photos at these historic Tibetan doors in downtown Laguna Beach. Then we headed to the beaches of Laguna. They were playing in the waves & we did a lot of fun photos for their engagement session in Laguna.
