Southern California is known for it’s yearlong sunshine and warm weather. It’s not often that we experience rain or other extreme weather. This is the primary reason people travel near and far to the Montage Laguna Beach to indulge in the California sun. However, although it’s rare, sometimes we do receive a little bit of rain every once in a while in Orange County! This is no reason to fret. Our team of professional photographers will still be able to make your stay at the Montage stress free and still get those amazing photos that you’re looking for. Here are a few things to keep in mind when preparing for your photo shoot in the rain:
1) Don’t forget the umbrellas! While strolling around property or walking along the beach, having a prop such as an umbrella adds a carefree and fun look to your photos. It also adds a nice color pop if there is some cloud coverage.
2) Our properties are beautiful, inside and out! Especially around the holidays, Montage Laguna Beach is decorated head to toe in holly, decorative lights, and poinsettias. So if the rain gets to be too much outside, there are plenty of options to take gorgeous photos inside of the resort. Whether it is near the tree or cuddled up next to the fireplace, there is no shortage of opportunities for the perfect photo.
3) Our cameras can handle a little rain. Believe it or not, most cameras are built with a weather resistant coating. This means that as long as it’s not pouring outside, we are up for a rainy shoot as long as you are!
Considering all of these things, don’t let a little rain prevent you from capturing your travels here in Southern Orange County. Throw on some rain boots and a warm scarf, and leave the rest up to us. For more tips on planning a successful shoot check out our blog on lighting.
