There are several places in OC that I took into consideration: Long Beach by the queen mary, Downtown Fullerton, Pasadena, Newport, Cornona del Mar and Laguna Beach.  We ended taking ours at Laguna Beach.

Ask your photographer where he/she likes to shoot. They usually have an idea or two.

The best way to find out areas that you may like are look at photographer’s blog’s and look at where they have their engagement shoots. (You can use sites like the Knot to access LA/OC photographers and search through their blogs). I think it also depends on if you are looking for an urban setting, beach setting or outdoorsy setting.

We ended up picking a place that had a bit of significance for us – the Venice Canals. You should think of some places that has some meaning for you and your FI. I think that we are so lucky to be in a city where there are so many choices!

it’s not an open field, but if you go up to Claremont, the Claremont Colleges have GORGEOUS campuses. Lots of green there.

Maybe up in Chino area you could find a field? I realize this is more northern LA county/San Bernadino and less LA/OC, but honestly the drive’s not bad if it’s not in traffic hours.

I just hiked up to the Baldwin Hills Overlook state park yesterday.  There is a park website.  The wildflowers are blooming & there are really great views of L.A.  The trail entrance is on Jefferson Blvd.  next to Inner Gardens.  I wish I had some photos taken there – on a clear day.  The Parks Service has a good website about it. Free unless you want to drive up & park and it’s $6.00 cash.
