Hi there,

My husband, a professional photographer, did a proposal surprise/mini engagement shoot for a close friend of ours near Corona del Mar.
I never knew actual permits are needed for just engagement shoots! It’s not like you’re hauling in a massive amount of equipment, right?

Anyway, details of their at his blog page.

Good luck!

We took ours in Corona Del Mar.  We did not need permits.  What was awesome is we got great beach shots but also ones of cute parks and streets scenes in CDM.  They all came out great.

While permits are needed in these places I have never actually heard of anybody ever actually asking for the permit.

I have been stopped for permits a couple of times.  They are pricey and it is a bummer that they are so expensive.  It is hit or miss about getting stopped.  CDM always asks (they don;t want people hurting the tide pools by walking on them.  THe Montage usually doesn’t ask but I have seen police down there from time to time asking for permits.  You may want to try somewhere like Newport Beach or I don;t think that Also Creek Beach requires a permit (just past the Montage). Good Luck!!

I took my engagements pictures at Laguna Beach 2 weeks ago and we did not have a permit I was not even aware we needed one.
