A few weeks ago, I was asked to photograph Chloe and Nikki’s wedding at Point Dume in Malibu. I jumped at the chance not only because they are a great couple but because, for whatever reason, photographing a wedding of two brides had eluded me. It was all of my favorite things… super low-key, intimate and all in such a beautiful setting. It was also my quickest wedding yet! I was only there for about an hour… A day of firsts in more ways than one! I found it all to be so inspiring and had to share some of my favorite images from the day. Enjoy!
I have been doing more and more editorial work lately, which has been so fun for me! It’s always nice to do something a little different and great way to stretch my creative muscles. Photographing Monique Otero‘s gorgeous beach picnic for Camille Styles was especially exciting as I’ve been a fan of Camille’s blog of some time. It also didn’t hurt to have beautiful food, awesome people and great sea-nery. ;) It’s featured today and you can check it out here.
Shannon has pretty much responded to all the images I’ve shared since our shoot a few weeks ago with heart eyes emojis, lots and lots of them. And, really, I think “heart eyes” is the best way to describe the whole experience of adventuring up the Angeles Crest Highway for my engagement session with these two.
After having just met in person for the first time, I took a laughter-filled, phototastic drive with Shannon and Jon up into the forest north of LA as golden hour was setting in. We started out at a couple woodsy spots which were pretty, but I was determined to end the shoot with a few stunning, epic, scenic shots… I just wasn’t quite sure where. Luckily, Shannon and Jon were up for some exploration and, man, it totally paid off. I kind of lost my cool when we came to this amazing, amazing, AMAZING overlook just as the sun was going down. It was so good! All I can say is… heart eyes.
