Mission San Juan Capistrano is one of my favorite places to shoot any type of portraits from weddings, to engagement photos to family portraits. There is a perfect view around every corner of the Mission. One of my favorite spots in the mission is The Sacred Gardens. With the bells in the background it gives a perfect definition of Mission San Juan Capistrano.
Alyson and Chuck chose the Mission for it’s history and the great views it offers. Below you will see a handful of my favorite shots. Click the slideshow link to see all of their images. Enjoy and have a great day. PEACE

Heisler Park, Laguna Beach, CA, Engagement Photography, Orange County

Toni and Walter met me at Heisler PArk in LAguna Beach for their engagement photos. It was a great day with perfect weather. We walked the newly remodeled park and then headed down to the beach for the sunset. We had a south Swell which was producing an extra high tide and some big waves breaking on the rocks. We were limited to how much we could do but they were brave enough to hit the rocks and get some great shots. We finished up by walking to Main Beach and getting some shots with the lifegueard tower. Enjoy the images.

Matt and Allison had their wedding at the Arroyo Trabuco Golf Course in Mission Viejo. The day was perfect with a little bit of cloud cover and of course a chance of rain, which never came. We photographed the girls first getting ready in brides room followed by some great shots around the O’neil Bar and some of surrounding areas. Allison looked amazing!!! We then met the guys in the mens locker room followed by a some shooting around the same areas and some fun shots. Both the men and women were so melow and willing to try anything.

The reception was just amazing. They had EMobile Music and DJ Todd who brought his huge rear projection screen and not only played music through the night but also the musci videos from the songs he was playing, the crowd loved it and they danced all the way until the music had to be shut down!!!

San Juan Capistrano, CA, Mission San Juan Capistrano, Engagement Session:

Nicolle and Chris are one of my awesome couples getting married this summer. They come from a long list of friends that i have shot their weddings. I think a total of 14!! BY far that is the longest chain of couples in my career.

They decided to have their session at one of my most favorite locations. Mission San Juan Capistrano, “The Jewel of the Missions”. We met their at 9:30 on Saturday to hope to beat the crowds. It worked, the mission was next to empty with mostly people getting ready for the days events. We spent the hour wondering through the history of the mission and shooting down some of their wonderful halls and the Old Stone Church. Check out the images below and enjoy.
