The Lab Anti-Mall engagement session photos:

I first met newly engaged couple Lauren and Tyler at my studio in Downtown Long Beach just after Christmas. It was great to hear how Tyler had proposed and their upcoming wedding plans, with a celebration at Hotel Maya in the Fall, just around the corner from where I am based. It was exciting for me to talk weddings with them as their The Lab Anti-Mall engagement session was going to be one of my last as an unmarried man, with my own wedding just around the corner.

Segerstrom Center For The Arts engagement session photos:

I headed down to Orange County to meet up with Lauren and Tyler on the day of their scheduled e-session, beginning the day at the Segerstrom Center For The Arts in Costa Mesa. There is some really dramatic lighting to work with here, as well as a gorgeous cherry blossom tree, and I loved the casual look that Lauren and Tyler had opted for.

The Lab Anti-Mall engagement session photos:

We then went over to The Lab Anti-Mall which is also in Costa Mesa to take advantage of its bold colors and unique style. Lauren and Tyler really wanted their images to have a lot of personality and reflect the lifestyle they like to lead, and I have to say that this location did just that.

There were some really distinctive drums for us to utilize, as well as vibrantly painted walls, and Lauren and Tyler brought a lot of chemistry and romance to this The Lab Anti-Mall engagement session. I particularly liked the mid-afternoon sunbursts which gave the images a whimsical feel, as well as the lush greenery in one of The Lab Anti-Mall’s gardens.

Victoria Beach engagement session photos:

As the sun began sinking towards the horizon, we headed over to Laguna Beach or, more specifically, Victoria Beach. I captured the couple walking along the sands together and just soaking up this beautiful moment, as well as a shot of them embracing against the sunset. They had also brought some love heart props, and in the final moments of sunset I captured a romantic silhouette of them kissing while holding them.
