Costa Mesa Engagement Session {Sharon + Jason}


This was definitely one of the most fun engagement sessions I’ve shot in a long time! Sharon and Jason were totally up for the challenge of making their engagement photos very personalized. I love when my clients bring props to the engagement session for several reasons. Props serve as excellent ice breakers, especially for people who tend to be nervous when in front of the camera. They give you the opportunity to communicate who you are as a couple & make your engagement pictures not look like “everyone else’s.”  Plus, props are just plain fun!  Sharon and Jason will be tying the knot this September at St. Thomas Korean Catholic Center in Anaheim, followed by a reception at the Embassy Suites Anaheim North.  Keep an eye out for their wedding images!

My trusty assistant/husband, Chriss, was in charge of throwing the ball.  His first try almost pegged Sharon in the stomach (nice catch Jason!)  Second try- perfection!

Sharon chose the best outfits for their engagement session!  Doesn’t all this color look awesome?!  I’ll show the equally adorable third outfit in another blog post.Laguna Beach wedding pictures

It was quite interesting creating these images in the middle of downtown Laguna Beach…Sharon was explaining something to me, casually waving her cute little gun in the air, just as a cop walked by.  Don’t worry, it’s all legit and legal!  Chriss is holding our video light right next to me to create this dramatic look.  I didn’t want to use a regular on-camera strobe because I wanted to maintain the dark background.meadow engagement pictures
