Hotel Laguna, Laguna Beach, CA

One of my favorite venues is Hotel Laguna in Laguna Beach, CA. I photographed weddings here many, many times. I love this venue. It has it all.


  • Wedding on the sand

  • There is a salon inside the Hotel Laguna called International Hair Salon ( that does great work & makes it easy for you to get ready. All inclusive weddings are easy for B&G & guests as opposed to driving to 2 to 3 locations

  • Awesome sunset shots

  • Experienced, kickass staff


  • Doesn’t make sense to whine about sand in your shoe on your wedding day. Solution: go barefoot. I had a bride go barefoot here & she was nothing but smiles the entire day

  • Lots of people will be walking on the beach in your backgrounds. Find a photographer who will photoshop them out. I always do & the couple shots look like its just you two.

Hotel Laguna is a stellar venue. I highly recommend it.
