Magical Engagement Session in Newport Beach, CA

Laura and Jesse wanted to do their engagement session at one of their favorite beaches, Little Corona Del Mar. “You mean Corona Del Mar State Beach?” I asked, because I had never heard of the little one and assumed that’s what they meant.

What. A. Whirlwind. Trevor approached me about photographing his proposal, wondering if I had any ideas of where it should happen.
