Daycation + beach town shoot in Catalina Island

Great food, company, and location


I met Lauren on Instagram a while back through hashtags when I was shooting a lot of sororities in college and needed inspiration for sorority photos. She was also in college in Denver and we chatted about shooting if she ever came out to LA.


Lauren ended up moving out to LA and we finally got to plan a shoot in Catalina Island. I have been wanting to shoot in Catalina for a very long time and thought Lauren might photograph well there.


Lauren ended up inviting a friend who was in town from Chicago and we had a great time. I recommend all photographers in LA to shoot in Catalina. Very cost and time friendly/worthy.

Arrived in Avalon, Catalina Island.

The Catalina Express ferry leaves from Long Beach and the round trip costs $74.50 per person. Considering that a decent Peerspace location costs $150/hr before cleaning fees in Los Angeles, $223.50 for a daycation for 3 people is very cost friendly.
