Your outfit should reflect you personality.  Maybe you want to dress for an adventure or maybe you want to go formal.  Consider how your attire can fit with your session location.

What will you wear


Some locations can be super crowded.  While a session at the beach, a popular park or Disneyland can be great, it may not be ideal for you.

Location Popularity


Do you love nature?  Did you go to a fair on your first date?  While a beautiful garden might be fun for some, maybe it isn't the perfect location for you.

Who Are You As A Couple


As seasons shift so does temperature, sunset times, foliage and crowds. Not all locations are a great choice year round.  

The Season & weather



discovering orange county engagement locations:


Orange County engagement photography is the type of photography we love doing with our couples. Three16 Photography will capture your intimate Balboa Fun Zone Engagement Photos located across from Balboa Island in Newport Beach and you will have the time of your life. The Balboa Fun Zone is one of the older amusement areas in Orange County. 

The Balboa Fun Zone has a long history dating back to 1936. This area can be a bit nostalgic and yet modern. With everything the zone has to offer, so does some great photography opportunities. First and foremost is the giant Ferris Wheel. This has plenty of angles to which to get unique photographs. Shooting from the ground going into the sky, shooting from behind you while high up on the wheel. The creativity in your shots can be endless. And if we are there on the right day, maybe we will see Griffin, the Ferris Wheel Dog.

There are also plenty of activities that we can incorporate into your Balboa Fun Zone engagement photo shoot. Imagine yourselves in the older style Balboa Arcade playing air hockey or pinball. You can rent bikes and ride along the coast and other fun rides. Then of course, eating ice cream cones together or other carnival like foods.

Besides the activities on land, you can also consider water activities. You can rent a boat, go parasailing or even whale watching during certain times of the year. Or we can simply take the ferry over to the Balboa Peninsula and do take more photos there. The peninsula offers a variety of other photo opportunities that the Fun Zone doesn’t offer such as beach, sand and sailboats.

So, if you want something fun and different than the traditional beach and/or park photo shoot for your engagement pictures, you might want to consider Balboa Fun Zone Engagement Photos by Three16 Photography.
