Orange County Engagement Photographer
As we enter the spring season, and with summer just around the corner, more and more newly engaged couples are looking to setup their engagement photo sessions. Beautiful Southern California weather and incredible landscapes all play into this. With the weather the way it has been, what better place to have your photos taken than along the coast? Being an Orange County engagement photographer, I have seen it all and that’s why I was happy that Lindsy and Patrick chose Treasure Island Beach for their session. Photos of Patrick & Lindsy’s Treasure Island Beach Engagement in Laguna Beach by Three16 Photography will leave them everlasting memories for years to come.
Treasure Island has some of the best rock formations within the Laguna Beach strip of beaches, which gives it an added dimension to your photos in lieu of just walking along the sand. The scenery here is truly beautiful. In one direction you have the gorgeous ocean water, another direction are the rocks and yet in another direction you have the hills, the expensive homes and the fencing along the trail down to the beach. No matter which way we face, there will always be something unique at this location and that is what makes this beach so much fun.
I had a fun time with Lindsy and Patrick during this photoshoot. The love between them was evident, as they were playful and loving, and very relaxed, even when Patrick got a bit wet. Although they were not high tides, the tide was a little higher than usual for this time of year, especially near the rock area. As we went to the rocks for photos, Lindsy and I managed to stay dry, while Patrick, yeah, he did not. He only got a little wet, but he was a true sport through it all. The beach was a bit busy this day as more and more Covid restrictions are scaled back, but we made the best of it. Not bad for a gorgeous sunny day at the beach.
All of the details of their engagement session at Treasure Island Beach were captured by the team at Three16 Photography and we look forward to photographing their special day as well.
Just think, from a chance meeting while working in Philadelphia to a pending wedding in October 2021 at Ponte Winery in Temecula, Lindsy and Patrick have a beautiful love story. Here is just a snippet of that love story. We hope you enjoy it, and their photos, as much as we do.
Lindsy and Patrick’s Love Story
How & When did you first meet? Describe your thoughts and how you felt about each other, and tell us, was it love at first sight?
We met in 2016 at work but really didn’t get to know each other until June 2019. I was visiting Philadelphia for work, and because of the small size of the facility, we were both working out of a conference room. We got to talking between meetings and phone calls, and we mentioned we both like Mexican food and being bougie. He suggested a taco place on Passayunk and I said, “yes,” not knowing if either of us thought this was a date or not. We sat down for a drink around 7pm and the next thing we knew it was 2am on a Tuesday and neither of us could think about anything but the next time we’d get to see each other.
What do you both do for work?
We work for a logistics company. I’m in HR and he’s in operations.
GROOM: What was it that made you first start liking your bride-to-be?
I have never wanted to hear the next words coming out of anyone’s mouth more than hers.
BRIDE: What was it that made you first start liking your groom-to-be?
He was funny, surprisingly supportive, and so invested in making us work. I knew it was the real deal.
What makes your relationship special? Tell us some things that you both value in your time together and what makes your relationship unique?
What we love more than anything is that we can truly be ourselves around the other person and never feel any shame or judgment.
Tell us about your proposal story! How and Where did it all unfold? Were you surprised and tell us, who cried first?
He proposed during COVID! And it’s hard to keep a secret when you live and work within about ten feet of the other person at all times. First, he told me had we had to go to LA and I wasn’t allowed to ask why. Then he came back and said, hey, we can make a date out of it, and go to LA, but he had to go to the diamond district for a few hours and I wasn’t allowed to come. When he proposed, we were hoping to hike up to a beautiful waterfall, but it was closed due to fire warnings, so we turned back around and drove to a gorgeous beach instead. He got down on one knee, and neither of us can remember what he said, but we’re both sure I said yes!
What is one piece of advice you have for couples just beginning the wedding planning process? And what have you enjoyed most about planning your wedding?
Don’t forget that the day is all about you. Beyond that, read reviews, ask friends for referrals, and double your budget. Good luck!
