Downtown Laguna Beach engagement session photos:

Nasim and Steve met during their undergraduate college years and were planning a multicultural wedding drawing on her Persian roots next summer. From the moment we met they were super sweet and just full of love, and I was excited to capture this Downtown Laguna Beach engagement session.

William R Mason Regional Park engagement session photos:

We started the e-session in the mid afternoon, meeting up at the William R Mason Regional Park in Irvine. I loved the bright red dress that was Nasim was wearing and Steven’s choice of checked shirt, giving the images a really playful feel. I captured warm embraces as they explored the walking trails of the park, as well as a fun black and white of Nasim peeking over her groom-to-be’s shoulder.

Heisler Park engagement session photos:

We then headed over to Laguna Beach and in particular Heisler Park which boasts a beautiful location overlooking the Pacific Ocean. We had timed it perfectly for the rich sunset light which illuminated the couple and provided an ideal setting for some creative silhouettes.

We took advantage of one of Heisler Park’s gazebos for a few images and its towering palm trees, as well as the binoculars for a fun shot of Steven checking out Nasim. Then right as the sun hit the horizon, I grabbed a romantic silhouette as they came in close for a kiss.

Downtown Laguna Beach engagement session photos:

Nasim and Steven also wanted some nighttime portraits, so we had a short Downtown Laguna Beach engagement session to end the evening. We took some playful shots both outside and inside an ice cream parlor, as well as some reflective portraits incorporating an oil painting in a local art gallery.

Nasim had changed into a bright green dress which really popped against the dimly-lit backdrops, and I got in close for one shot to capture the beautiful detailing on its back.

Downtown Laguna Beach engagement session photos:

It was really wonderful getting to know Nasim and Steven a little better throughout this e-session and I can’t thank them enough for choosing me as their Laguna Beach engagement photographer. I really love photographing multicultural weddings so am particularly looking forward to capturing their Persian celebrations over the Labor Day weekend next year.
