California Desert Engagement · Julie and Kraig

I encourage my clients to choose their engagement session locations. It is a fun photographic challenge and keeps me on my toes. For my clients it is perhaps something meaningful, something unique or maybe something they always wanted to do. So in the last couple years I have taken pictures of couples at places like UCLA, Irvine Regional Park, Santa Monica Pier, San Francisco, Laguna Beach, Balboa Island, Little Italy San Diego, Manhattan Beach, Redondo Beach, Huntington Beach, UCI, CSULB, downtown Pasadena, Griffith Observatory, etc., etc., etc. FUN! FUN! FUN!

Julie and Kraig came up with a NEW surprise idea for their engagement session – the desert! Thank you for this {cue sarcasm}! This is a really great way to put me out of my comfort zone. The desert sun was hot and high when we got there (somewhere off the 15 & 138 frwys in the Silverlake area) and it looked, well . . . like a desert. ;)

We ended up having a really great time and got awesome pictures. Desert photos are SICK!!

See you soon when you tie the knot at Strawberry Farms Golf Club!

"We could just elope"

Sometimes a big wedding just isn't what
you want. Elopements are pretty much my favorite thing EVER to
photograph, because you get to make the day totally unique to you.
When you elope, there aren't any compromises necessary – You can go
anywhere you want to, do anything you like, and have the adventure of
a lifetime. The beauty is that since you're saving a TON of money
that you'd spend on a big wedding, you have more flexibility to
travel, buy that perfect dress, splurge a $1000 on flowers, or spend
a little extra on details you might not be able to afford with a big


Elopements are simple, relaxed, and
beautiful. And the best part is you can do it anywhere, anytime.


So if you're
planning an elopement in Orange County or Southern California, I've
put together a list of great elopement venues. These range from urban
to the 100% wild outdoors. The beauty of eloping in Southern
California is there is literally EVERYTHING to choose from. Want to
elope on the beach in Laguna? We can do that. Want to head off into
the mountains and have an elopement in Big Sur? Easy peesy. Dig that
desert vibe? Have an elopement at Joshua Tree! We have some of the
best elopement locations in the world. (and that's why I love being
an elopement photographer in Orange County!)


With that intro
out of the way, lets get into this list of the best elopement
locations around Orange County!
