I always wondered what it would be like to photograph photographers. Now I can say—it's amazing!! Grant and Sarah are both mega-talented photographers in their own right. Like me, they shoot weddings and events in Southern California. Not only was it a huge honor for them to ask me to document their engagement and wedding (no doubt they have a long list of other photographers they know), but it was SO much fun to spot backgrounds and imagine the shot together with them. This shoot felt like a collaboration of minds, rather than me running around bossing my subjects around. Thank you so much, Grant and Sarah, for being so lovely and creative and so gosh darn cute together. STOKED to shoot your wedding (spoiler alert: beach elopement) this summer!
It's been so fun to watch the Potter family grow in numbers and in age over the last few years! It seems like Lincoln gets MORE ocean-obsessed with every passing day. For these photos we headed down to El Matador State Beach for a quick mini-session to document this special moment in the Potter family's life together.
El Matador Beach is always great for a fun senior session. Lots of rocks to sit, stand, lean on. And it's always my favorite when Mom jumps into a few!!
Jake and Tawni are college friends turned card-game rivals turned sweethearts. Spend five minutes with them and it's obvious they're best friends and love every second together, whether it's a surf sesh, a grocery shopping date, or a car ride to work together. They're getting married in May at Jake's family's ranch, and they wanted to commemorate their Malibu love story with this engagement session at the iconic El Matador State Beach.
We rock-hopped, we cave-explored, we got a little wave-splashed, and we had the best time!
Every month, just in time for the full moon, MoonBox subscribers receive a package on their doorstep that's packed with essential oils, crystals, a special tea blend, and a guided meditation, all grounded in what's happening with the moon and stars this month. "It's a full moon ritual in a box!" the website says.
Just in time to kick off family portrait season, here's Christen and her two sons. Together we ran all over every inch of El Matador Beach at low tide, and snapped photos of this wild bunch.
Braelyn is graduating from high school and what better way to memorialize that than a fun, beachy photo shoot!? We headed down to El Matador State Beach (my favorite photographer's beach) for some golden light and low tide shenanigans. Take a look!
I can't wait until I've been married for 15 years. But until then, I'll just have to keep hanging out with other couples who have!
Another day, another sunset, another hour of golden light down at my favorite photographer's beach—El Matador State Beach.
