One of the most unique places in Southern California is the tower at Victoria Beach. Who says that you can’t find any castles in California. This spot captivates visitors and have them wondering why it’s even there. The structure was built in 1926, at the same time as the Norman House on the cliff above, the 60-foot-tall concrete tower with a stone foundation has been a Laguna Beach icon for many years. It’s no wonder why so many Southern California photographers flock to this beautiful spot. Monique and Austin are huge beach fans so this location for their engagement session was just what the doctor ordered for them.
Marie and Nathan were married at one of the most romantic, historic venues nestled in the foothills of the San Gabriel mountains. Padua Hills theatre in Claremont, California is one of the most beautiful locations in Southern California. Surrounded by family and friends the ceremony was original and very personal. We wrapped up the reception at an outstanding Italian restaurant where the wine was flowing and everyone enjoyed the flavors of Italy. Buon appetite!
Darriana and Blake told me that they really loved this engagement session that I did and wanted a location with the same rustic charm. That’s how we ended up at Bonelli Park in San Dimas. Bonelli Park has rolling hills, a beautiful lake, great hiking trails and cool wooded areas where we could just get lost. I’m very thankful to the guys for their patience, readiness for physical exercise (hiking) and all the cool extra clothing they brought to make their engagement shoot really special. Looking forward to the wedding!
Kristin and Eric’s engagement photos at Malibu Creek Wilderness Park were filled with love and affection. Malibu Creek is famous for being the location for the old M.A.S.H television series. Malibu Creek State Park sits in 10,000 acres of rugged terrain near the Malibu coast, protecting flowing creeks, man-made lakes, historic structures, and prominent cliffs. Kristin and Eric were feeling adventurous, so they braved the rugged terrain for a few photos and I’m so glad they did. I can’t wait to photograph them again on their big day in December!
