Replica 19th-century tall-mast sailing ship? Check. Taking engagement photos in Dana Point is easy with plenty of great background choices and a fun, happy couple ready to tie the knot.

The Couple: Diana & Phil — These love birds met at work. Now they're working on their love! They brought their best smiles and cute outfits. Check out more engagement photos of this couple on our blog.

The Details: The beach was chilly and breezy the day we stopped by to take engagement pictures at the Ocean Institute in Dana Point, but you'd never know it by the warmth of these pictures. The institute and its surroundings is one of their favorite weekend hangouts, which is why they picked it for their engagement session. And we're glad they did! It's a great spot for pictures or just taking a walk along the marina located just up the street.
