I had to say, I was a little nervous as I drove up PCH. Seeing the clouds come in, I knew the high Malibu brush would look dull and flat, and what if it started to rain? When I met up with Tiya and Brian, we nixed the meadows and found a pleasant break in the bushes that protected them from the wind. And as soon as we found a quiet spot, Tiya and Brian settled in and just made it so effortless. They couldn’t take their eyes off each other, these two are so meant to be. After 14 years of dating, not an ounce of romance seems to have been lost. As the sun set, the colors of nature matched Tiya and Brian’s outfits perfectly. It felt like the day was meant to be as well.
I wanted to surprise Sally and Marcus with how amazing their engagement photos came out, to get them even more excited about their upcoming wedding (my first of the year!). The photo gods were smiling down on me that day. When I arrived early at our Malibu beach location, it was rainy, windy, and cold. I prayed to the universe for the skies to clear, since Sally and Marcus have grown dear to my heart and I wanted everything to go as smoothly as possible. Minutes into the session, the sun broke through, and the remaining clouds added an epic quality that matches how crazy head-over-heels these two are for each other. I’d be changing my lens, look over my shoulder, and they’d be gazing into each others’ eyes without me having to say a word. Days like this, and lovebirds like them, make my job a dream come true.
Sally and Marcus, counting down to your wedding!!!!!
