– Ashley + Everett –
This week in quarantine I’ll take you guys back to this fun Mount Laguna engagement shoot. Yup, this is not and nowhere near Laguna Beach, CA.
This hidden gem is an hour drive East from San Diego and has everything you wanted and more, from grassy meadows, woodsy pine forests, to vast mountain + desert views, it’s like the whole package (it even has snow in the winter – how cool is that?!). If you want some greeneries and mountain views, then Mount Laguna is the spot for you!
It’s very high on my top recommendation for cool spots around San Diego.
Shooting here can be flexible since it has both amazing sunsets and sunrises. And I’m so down to both!
Another thing I really like about Mount Laguna is that it isn’t crowded AT ALL! Like you’re there on your own, not a human in sight. There are still cabins and coffee shops along the main road, but I doubt they’re open because I’ve never seen people in the area lol.
A few notes if you’re planning to visit: freezing cold and very windy in the winter – early spring months. But the views are always worth it! Summer is the most popular time to visit and enjoy its cool weather at 6000 ft above sea level.
Ashley & Everett love spending time outdoors and they wanted somewhere secluded and open so they can run around freely. We talked over a couple of options and Mount Laguna seemed to fit best with their energy. And it did not disappoint, they told me that nature here also played a big role in helping them relax in front of the camera. I really enjoyed capturing their connection and fun time being themselves. Enjoy this fun Mount Laguna engagement shoot.
