This Laguna Beach Engagement Portrait session was such a blast! The beautiful afternoon light really gave these photos a stunningly vibrant tone. Marvin even got the seagulls to participate in the photo shoot! He has a crazy knack for catching birds in flight within the frame of a kissing couple. He shot Rocco & Hannah’s engagement portraits at our favorite Laguna Beach spot near the Montage Resort. With the ever-changing tides, there’s always a new spot or angle to photograph.
Rocco and Hannah are from the UK and will be married there later this year. Hannah’s dad (Rocco’s soon to be father-in-law) was on the scene and Rocco was a little shy about kissing Hannah in front of him! Despite the father-in-law intimidation and awkwardness, the connection between these two really made for some amazing photos. We wish Rocco & Hannah the best and wish we could jump on a plane to shoot their wedding too!
These are my favorite engagement portraits from their session. The reflection of this couple in mid-kiss in the water below them is a perfectly framed moment. I also especially love the warm hazy glow of the last photograph right after the sun dipped down into the ocean. It’s almost like the sun kissed these two just before it set. It’s sessions like these that make my heart flutter because of how Marvin captures the hopeful and wonderful future these two have in store.
