Lauren & Aaron’s Engagement Session at El Matador State Beach, Malibu

Lauren & Aaron’s Engagement Session at El Matador State Beach, Malibu

Today I’m sharing a few of my favorites from Lauren and Aaron beautiful engagement session we photographed this past weekend. The film scans from Goodman Film Lab started rolling in today, and I just couldn’t wait!

Aaron grew up surfing in Malibu, so going to the beach is something that is really meaningful and special. El Matador is always a top choice because other beaches can hardly compare to the beautiful sea caves and massive rocks sprinkled along the coast.

Lauren and Aaron met through a mutual friend and the rest is history. They will be tying the knot this spring at Calamigos Ranch, and I cannot wait to document their celebration and work along my favorites - Weddings by Susan Dunne and Mulberry & Moss.

Angie & Eugene - Beach Engagement Session in Palos Verdes, CA

Angie & Eugene - Beach Engagement Session in Palos Verdes, CA

Eugene and Angie knew right away that they wanted to go to the beach for their engagement session, and we settled on a little trail in Malaga Cove. The beautiful views of Palos Verdes cliffs sure didn't disappoint!

We had to reschedule their session once before since Eugene had sprained his ankle playing basketball and was in a cast for about a month. He had just taken off his cast a week prior to the shoot, and was still totally up for doing (and climbing) wherever it takes to get the shot! They also brought along Pepper and Peanut, their adorable puppies, to the shoot who were on their best behavior. 

Needless to say, these two looked absolutely gorgeous during this dreamy beach session and made my job a total breeze. I had the best time photographing their engagement shoot and cannot wait for their wedding this fall! Here are a few of my favorites!
