McCune Photography Blog bio picture
  • WELCOME!

    We're Cory & Gloria, a husband-and-wife photography duo based in Sunny Orange County, California. At McCune Photography, we hold an incredible passion for life, love, and documenting the emotional moments that add meaning to our lives. Our approach to photography is natural and relationship-oriented; we love to get to know our clients long before putting them in front of the lens. Our focus is on you. Our goals are to create a special vision together with you, and immortalize the bonds, emotions, and moments that can’t be re-lived or replaced. Beautiful photographs are emotional moments frozen in time for you to remember and revisit with family, friends, or a quiet moment alone - and we strive to create images that will be cherished for generations.

    Cheers!
    Cory + Gloria

Palos Verdes Engagement Session :: Sarah + Ozzie

Sarah & Ozzie have a genuine love much like Yin & Yang, where their individual strengths complete each other in the most perfect way. He is a chivalrous gentleman that treats her like an elegant queen, always looking and caring for every need she has. She is a soft spoken goddess, that has a natural & effortless beauty. Combined they are full of adventure, and were not afraid to let loose and break some rules with us in this engagement session at the very same beach where Ozzie proposed to Sarah!

Orange County Engagement Session :: Christin + Matt

We are truly blessed to have the opportunity to work with such beautiful people that have romantic love stories envied by all. Matt dreamed of being a pilot, and found the love of his life when a flight attendant with a vivacious attitude raised him to a higher altitude. Christin is absolutely stunning in every way, a drop dead gorgeous crimson siren with a bubbly addictive personality. No wonder Matt couldn’t resist her. We spent some quality time with these jet-setters for an engagement session that flew beyond our expectations…

California Club Wedding :: Nina + Evan

The best love stories are never planned and happen by chance…unless fate has something to do with it. Nina & Evan have a romantic story that is straight out of a movie. They met as camp counselors, and over time fell madly in love. As they became intertwined in each other’s lives and families, it became clear that they are the perfect pair for one another. Evan whisked Nina away to her old neighborhood, with a surprise proposal in the place she loved so much.

One of the many amazing things about Nina & Evan is how much they are loved by their friends and family. Their hearts are larger than life and they are always putting others ahead of themselves. It is easy to see how these two fell head over heels for one another. Their wedding day was absolutely breathtaking, the ceremony conducted at St Sophia’s Cathedral in Los Angeles. Immediately after they walked down the aisle they were greeted outside the chapel by the Los Angeles Police Emerald Society of Bagpipes & Drums.

The reception at the California Club was designed to perfection by High Society Events and Elegant by Design. We had such a great time being a part of their day and will always cherish these special moments. Thank you Nina & Evan – we wish you both a happily ever after!

Balboa Island Engagement Session :: Elisabeth + Austin

There was an instant connection the moment we met Elisabeth & Austin for the first time. A conversation that quickly began about getting to know them as a couple and their wedding details resulted in a conversation about their love for Star Wars, video games, cartoons, and comic books. They are a match made in heaven! Austin is a brilliant artist, exciting and funny while Elisabeth is full of life, sweet and witty. They both live for the 3 C’s (*coffee, chardonnay, & cupcakes*), and it was such a fantastic experience to see the strength of their love combined into a force beyond explanation.

So what better location than the Balboa Island Fun Zone to shoot their engagement session?!  We had a such a phenomenal time together on the ferris wheel, on the beach, and enjoying the perfect summer day. There was not a single moment that we weren’t having a good time, especially since this is their favorite place to be…

Huntington Beach Engagement Session :: Kate + Sam

Kate and Sam are such an amazing match for each other. They share a passion for college football, surviving in a divided house where they both root for the Oregon State Beavers and Ducks simultaneously to win. Their love for each other has endured a long distance relationship that has blossomed through time developing a passion for adventure and travel together.

Since they treasure their times together in Huntington Beach, we spent some time with them from the grass all the way to the sand. We are looking forward to their wedding in February at the Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel. Here are some of our favorites from their engagement session. We hope you enjoy!
