Top Of The World Laguna Beach and Heisler Park Engagement Session | Los Angeles Wedding Photographer in Orange County
As a wedding photographer in Los Angeles and Orange County almost every couple dreams of having an engagement session on the beach. What happens when it’s summer, the tides are high during sunset and there are TONS of people everywhere? You find other gorgeous locations that fit your engagement session aesthetic.
A great option is Top Of The World Park in Laguna Hills. With just a short hike on one of the trails you’re surrounded by incredible views, a fantastic breeze and a perfect setting for some photography fun!
There is no entrance fee to the park. As a client you should be aware that the park does require a permit for photography. The permit fee is $100 for 2 hours and can be filed with the City of Laguna directly.
Hiking trails in this area vary from quite easy and flat to difficult and very steep.
When I was photographing this couple, I was very clear when communicating with them. Explaining what type of terrain was a head so they were prepared and felt comfortable to tell me their limits.
If you choose Top of The World for your engagement session you should know that for my particular wedding and engagement photography style I like to start shooting here about 1 1/2 hours before sunset. This gives us time to maneuver the trails and get back to our cars before it gets to dark.
By looking at Carlo and Alice’s engagement pictures at Top of The World Laguna Beach wondering how I managed to get them to look so INCREDIBLE.
I could say they were just naturals, and this is partly true. However, we worked together to create a fun time. Talking to one another, telling stories, dancing to absolutely no music and tickle competitions.
As a wedding photographer in the Los Angeles and Orange County areas I know how important it is to create a fun and safe environment for couples like you.
Giving you an awesome experience generates genuine emotion and simply put, you get better pictures this way.
