Potter Family of (almost) Four at Dume Cove | Malibu Family Photography, Beach Family Photography, Malibu Maternity Photography
Whitney and Christopher Potter are two beautiful souls who have been incredible parents to Lincoln for the past 2 years. In just a few short weeks, this incredible family of three is about to become a family of four and they wanted to visit little Lincoln's favorite place on the planet, the "oh-sheh," to document this moment in time.
Malibu Wines is a popular summertime hangout where locals can pack a picnic, sip some great local wine, and kick their shoes off as the hot summer days turn into perfect summer evenings. Sometimes Malibu Wines brings in comedians or plays classic films on the lawn. Can life get any better?
Malibu Wines reached out in need of some quality lifestyle photography to power their visuals on social media (particularly Instagram) and their web presence.
One week. I edit and deliver all my wedding photo shoots in one week (with teasers in 24 hours).
I'll explain how later. But first, why?
Allison and Dan's wedding was an East Coast meets West Coast affair. Having lived in New York for the last several years, their love story and their crowd of friends hails from back east. Allison's roots and their future, however, is out west (they're moving to the LA area soon), so they decided to say their vows in a beautiful Catholic church and then follow it up with a beautiful outdoor reception in true So Cal wedding style—in a vineyard.
I love staycations as much as the next girl, so when the stunningly beautiful luxury beach front hotel, Malibu Beach Inn, reached out for photography in exchange for a free stay on a weeknight, it took me about 0.3 seconds to say heck yeah and offer a date.
Emma & Kyle have been together the longest of any wedding I've ever shot. They're the high school sweethearts who actually worked out, the best friends who have made it work, and the long-distance love birds who lasted. To celebrate their forever commitment to one another, their friends and families celebrated with an unforgettable backyard party, complete with all the usual (and not so usual) details that befit an Arkansas wedding—church pews in the backyard, perfectly mismatched place settings, and an outpouring of love from golden souls who have loved Emma and Kyle since before they were born.
Under a tree, in a vineyard, amidst dear friends and loved ones, Natalie and Ivo vowed to love and serve one another for as long as they both shall live.
Congratulations on graduating from Pepperdine University, Sharon!
Ryan proposes to Alexa at Charmlee Park in Malibu, CA | Malibu proposal photography, Malibu engagement photography
As a photographer, I'm seeing a trend toward photographing actual moments in people's lives, not just the posed portrait photo shoots and I'm. Loving. It. When Ryan reached out and asked for photos of his proposal to beautiful Alexa, the love of his life, I knew it would be one of my favorite moments of the year.
Two days. I took these photos two days before Zac and Christy welcomed Jude earth-side. I barely had time to edits these photos before Jude was here!
I live in Malibu, Calif.,
