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.

If you are looking for a great beach location to have your engagement photo session at, you might want to consider Crystal Cove State Beach. With its beautiful tidepools and sandy beaches, Crystal Cove Beach Engagement Photos in Newport Beach by Three16 Photography will leave you with beautiful memories that will last a lifetime.

Located in the southern part of Newport Beach between Corona del Mar and Laguna Beach, Crystal Cove is not a very large beach in comparison to Laguna, Huntington or even Newport Beaches. It’s not so large that we will have to deal with excess beach goers getting in the way or in the background of your photos, and yet this beach is not so private that it’s out of the way or inconvenient to park or access like some of the other smaller beaches along the Orange County coastline are.

In addition, other than the sand and ocean, this location also includes an active marine life, a wooden boardwalk and wooden benches, along with a variety of colorful flowers, brush and grassy areas. And of course, one of our favorite parts about this beach is the rock areas. Interested in getting a bite to eat? We can also include mealtime at The Beachcomber Café or the Bootlegger Bar. Crystal Cove is an absolutely beautiful location for engagement photography.
