Sophisticated Engagement Photos in Downtown California

Engagement photo ideas

A Sophisticated and Fun Session Full of Engagement Photo Ideas

This engagement photo shoot was held in Los Angeles, California and oh boy is it full of inspiration and ideas! The original plan for the shoot was altered slightly when, on the way to the venue, it began raining. While the couple initially hoped for the rain to let up, they decided to go ahead with it anyway “Singing In The Rain” style. They fully embraced the weather and had a great time with every aspect of the shoot. The unexpected rain meant that the engagement party itself turned into an incredible adventure for the couple. Once the photoshoot started, the couple began falling in love all over again–with each other and the rain. Luckily enough, the storm held out just long enough for the shoot to be finished, and the results were fantastic.

Walt Disney Concert Hall

The first portion of the shoot took place at the Walt Disney Concert Hall. The couple’s formal attire made the elegant setting romantic and dramatic. The bride-to-be wore a long silky mermaid gown from Camille La Vie and her fiance wore black trousers and a deep blue button-up. After the couple descended what seems like a million stairs down from the Disney Concert Hall, they headed to the next location of the shoot.

Laguna Beach Breeze

Outside in the ocean breeze, the couple posed under the overcast at Laguna Beach. Their romantic formal shots on the rocky beach were made even more spectacular by the sun peeking through the cloudy sky, welcoming what was to come. Additional photos were taken on the shore in the castle-like landscape with the bride wearing a full-length white skirt, sophisticated top, and shoes from Charlotte Russe. Her natural beauty was complemented by Cooper & Strop Salon, who gave her an exquisite makeover for the special day.

Fun in the Ocean

After the second portion of the photoshoot was wrapped up, the couple made even more fantastic memories. Once the bride-to-be changed out of her formal wear, they had a wonderful time splashing around in the water, cuddling up together under a blanket and simply enjoying one another’s company overlooking the ocean. The weather proved to be an excellent addition to the day and made the photo shoot truly original and unique.

Engagement Photo Ideas

Altogether, the photo shoot consisted of dramatic shots in the concert hall, romantic photos by the sea, and simply adorable photos of the couple enjoying themselves in and around the water while the day came to a close. The photos were taken by Bethany Miller Photography, and everyone lucky enough to receive photos from the album will know this is only the start of the couple’s happily ever after. We hope you fell in love with these photos as much as we did and found some engagement photo ideas along the way.
