Wedding photos at Montage Laguna Beach:

There’s no denying that the Montage Laguna Beach in Orange County is a stunning beachside venue, and Eileen and Vincent’s glamorous late summer wedding really made the most of it. This fun loving couple had met on the East Coast at dental school, but were returning to Southern California where Eileen’s parents live for their wedding celebrations. The venue really exudes elegance and high-end luxury, and I hope my photos of this wedding at Montage Laguna Beach captured the glamour of the day.

Getting ready photos at the Montage Laguna Beach:

I was shooting this wedding with the assistance of my wife Charlene. So while I was busy capturing the girls getting ready, she was with Vincent and his groomsmen in another suite of the Montage Laguna Beach. There was a really light-hearted, festive atmosphere in the air as the girls finished their hair and makeup, surrounded by plenty of babies and toddlers.

Pre-ceremony portraits at the Montage Laguna Beach:

It was then time for the first look between Eileen and Vincent, which we decided to capture in one of the elegant hallways of the Montage Laguna Beach. It was incredibly hot outside and the sun quite harsh, meaning that a garden shoot would have been less than ideal. Needless to say, it was quite a special moment seeing this loved-up couple get their first glimpse of each other.

Ceremony photos at the Montage Laguna Beach:

The wedding ceremony was held in the lush, landscaped garden courtyard of Montage Laguna Beach, overlooking the azure blue waters of the Pacific Ocean. I mixed it up between close-up portraits of the couple as they exchanged their vows, with wide-angle shots taking in the entire congregation. The sand mixing ceremony in the colors of the New York Mets (Vincent’s team) was one of my personal favorite moments of this Montage Laguna Beach wedding.

Post-ceremony portraits at the Montage Laguna Beach:

As the rich late afternoon light transformed into a golden sunset, we headed down to the sands of Montage Laguna Beach for some intimate couple portraits. It was actually quite busy on the beach that afternoon (there were even naked kids running around), which made finding people-free locations quite challenging. But we managed to make the best of the situation, and I had a blast capturing the beauty of this coastal setting at the Montage Laguna Beach.

Reception photos at the Montage Laguna Beach:

Eileen and Vincent’s wedding reception at the Montage Laguna Beach was a pretty wild affair, with a live band, surprise serenades and even a bit of “limbo”. The bride had changed into a soft pastel cocktail dress after the couple’s first dance, and then it was all in on the dance floor for the rest of the night. Amidst the celebrations, Eileen and Vincent had managed to order-in an In-and-Out burger, and I grabbed a shot of them romantically biting into it together!
