Orange County Wedding Photographers: How to Find the Right Wedding Photographer in Orange County to Capture Your Special Day

Along the Pacific Coast sits the sun-soaked area of Orange County. Long before it was known for reality shows and designer boutiques, Orange County drew in couples looking to tie the knot with its temperate weather and proximity to the ocean. Whether you’re itching to get hitched in Dana Point, Newport Beach or Irvine, there’s a photographer out there who will make your day look picture perfect.

How to Find the Best Wedding Photographers in Orange County

Begin your hunt for the perfect picture-taker by asking friends and family for referrals. Chances are, if a loved one can recommend a photographer they adored, you might like them, too. Stylistically, you want to look for someone with a portfolio that aligns with your vision of the day. Wedding portraits tell a love story, and you want yours to be displayed in print how it looks in your head. Are you looking for a photographer who plays with natural light, or enhances colors to look surreal and whimsical? Do you want a cameraperson who’s well-versed in beach pictures, or do you dream of something more urban? Once you can answer these stylistic questions, have a look at your wedding budget. On average, wedding photography in Orange County should account for about 10 percent of your total budget. The minimum you should plan on spending is around $2,000. This cost will account for the photographer being there day of (and potentially their assistant or another cameraperson), the time it takes to edit your photos, and the agreed upon prints and/or video that you requested.

Best Settings for Wedding Photography in Orange County

Anyone who’s been to California would tell you that the beach is a no brainer if you’re looking for photo shoot locations. From Crystal Cove State Park in Laguna Beach with its soft sand and blue waters, to Huntington Beach with its picturesque pier and penchant for surfers, you have to take a moment on your wedding day to stick your toes in the sand. Orange County wedding photographers should be able to capture the light off the water as you smooch in the surf. For lovebirds planning on spending their wedding date away from the water, consider meandering through the Old Towne District in Orange. Brick-lined roundabouts and quaint cafes make for swoon-worthy retro images of you and your special someone.

Best Time of Year for Wedding Photography in Orange County

Truth be told, Southern California is beautiful year round. Days are longer in the summer, which makes for sunny late night receptions and spontaneous romps to the ocean for night swims. However, even if you’re to be wed in the fall or winter, your guests should need no more than a light jacket. Any time of year is a good time to get married in Orange County, and if you choose a photographer who’s familiar with the area, you should be able to lock in some pictures with a stunning California sunset.

Don’t leave your wedding planning until the last minute. Instead, use WeddingWire for help planning your special day. From organizing your wedding guest list to hunting for bridal party dresses, you’ll find everything you need to help you say “I do.”
