It was only the week before Sugandha and Farzan were planning a trip to Southern California that they emailed me to see if I could capture this Victoria Beach engagement session. Both of them live and work in Arizona as dentists, having met at NYU’s dental school and fallen completely in love. After a few emails inquiring about my work, they decided to book me, and it was a pleasure to meet this fun-loving couple at the Montage Laguna Beach resort.

Montage Laguna Beach engagement session photos:

Not only were the couple there when we met in the early morning one Friday, but also Sugandha’s sister, Tania, who had come to help out. I began by capturing a few romantic shots of the couple wandering through the gorgeous landscaped gardens of the Montage Laguna Beach resort, which boasts a stunning location overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

This luxury spa resort is an Orange County stand-out, with rooms that feature elegant dark wood furnishings and local artwork, as well as 21 different treatment rooms for various massage and therapeutic healing treatments.

We then headed down to Victoria Beach – one of my favorite locations for beachside engagement photo sessions. It was a little cloudy overhead, but that didn’t dampen the love between Sugandha and Farzan, and actually worked out well with the diffuse lighting that resulted in these Victoria Beach engagement session photos.

They were real naturals in front of the camera and I tried to be as creative as possible, capturing both wide angle and close-up shots of the couple on the sands and the rocky outcrops which flank Victoria Beach. Because of the time of day, it was really quiet on the beach and we could work largely undisturbed or without worrying about other people stepping into the shots.

Victoria Beach engagement session photos:

Although the e-session was less than two hours, I had so much fun getting to meet this wonderful couple and am looking forward to reconnecting with them in the near future. Sugandha is of Indian descent and Farzan Persian, and I really hope they’ll choose me to capture all the color, tradition and festivity of their multicultural wedding in the near future!
