The Monarch Beach Resort is a Forbes Five-Star, AAA Five-Diamond awarded resort, located along the pristine shores of the Pacific Ocean in Dana Point, California. Our Laguna Beach resort features one of the "Top 25 Hotel Spas in the World," as voted by Travel & Leisure Magazine.
The Monarch Beach Resort is truly a magnificent venue, with amazing stairways and halls filled with gorgeous natural lighting that make it such an enjoyable and lovely place to photograph. We have so many clients that have their weddings there but it’s startling how unique each wedding is, largely because The Monarch Beach Resort is so versatile. The grand columns and fountains add an air of majesty to the image, but there are also areas of wispy fields and greenery where it simply feels like we’re out in nature. The staff at The Monarch Beach Resort are so friendly and accommodating to everyone’s needs, like how one time when we were at a loud Indian reception, and within 10 minutes of us asking, Kelly saved our eardrums by providing us with earplugs!
“There are not enough words of praise that we can say about Lin and Jirsa photographers. Everyone can see from their photos that they are exceptional at what they do, but what you cannot tell from their photographs is how lovely and professional they are to work with. From a venue perspective, we can always breathe a huge sigh of relief when we know that Lin and Jirsa will be shooting one of our events. We know that they will take excellent care of our clients while also being respectful of other events that may be taking place at the hotel. They are the definition of “team players” and we truly value their support and dedication to helping us execute a flawless event.” – Monarch Beach Resort
