We will be photographing at Newport Beach Pier or Huntington Beach Pier which make for great golden hour photos. Other options are the Rocky Tidepools Of Corona Del Mar which make for great long exposures. And also the beautiful vistas and Coves of Laguna Beach.
Do bring a jacket since it can get a little chilly after the sun goes down. I usually wear sandals or slip on shoes (without socks) that I don't mind getting soaked and sandy.
