Sarah + Russell’s Victoria Beach Engagement Session was truly a joy to photograph. If you’ve never been to Victoria Beach in Laguna Beach, it’s such a magical place. Not only do experience a picture perfect beach and dreamy California light, but there’s an absolutely breathtaking castle built into the side of the cliffs which gives the location even more to love!
These two were so fun to spend the day with, not only capturing these fleeting moments of their engagement, but getting to know each other well before their upcoming wedding this July! This is definitely one of the main reasons why I recommend couples book an engagement session. It gives you lots of time to warm up in front of the camera and allows you to learn how your photographer shoots and gives direction. To tell you the truth, though, Sarah + Russell were such naturals on camera that they hardly needed any warming up at all! I loved being able to capture these beautiful, natural photographs of them, completely in their element at the beach. I hope they cherish these memories for years to come!

Sarah’s hair and makeup was perfect for this session. Stay tuned for an upcoming blog post about finding the right hair and makeup direction for your engagement session. I also love to collaborate with my clients, sharing outfit inspiration, along with hair and makeup ideas. We typically create our own Pinterest board or send ideas through Instagram or email.


Pretty much loving these fun photos of S + R dancing on the sand! The footprints are my favorite!
