We started their shoot in a grassy area in Irvine, going for a soft nature setting to begin the shoot.
Then we hopped over to Laguna Beach, specifically Victoria Beach. Engagement photography here requires a permit with the city of Laguna Beach, but that allows us to shoot uninterrupted and legally. The clouds gave us more texture in the sky that day, giving us a unique sunset.
As soon as I saw rays of sunlight peeking through the clouds, I knew I had to capture it! This is where a little bit of lighting knowledge goes a long way.
And I got wet. Worth it for the photo!
