Laguna, Laguna Niguel, Huntington all have attractions. Dana Point comes to mind also.

In my experience, being there at the right time is the most important element in getting beautiful beach shots. The last hour before sunset and on through 30-minutes past sunset will give you the most spectacular background. Palm trees, rocks and stuff in the foreground is useful. If shooting people, then you may need fill-flash or lighting to get the people adequately lit while exposing the background well.

Good luck, Dave

Never done a shoot or anything in Orange County, but I've always enjoyed Malibu. Angeles Crest is always great too

Depending on how far south you are, Mission Beach and Coronado have some good spots.

Examples from my more amateur days provided.
