All of this great Southern California weather lately reminded me of this sun-soaked Malibu engagement session I photographed last year. Lindsay and Daniel were so fun to work with… a perfect combination of laughter, playfulness and genuine affection. We began the journey at Malibu Lagoon State Beach which was an absolutely perfect setting to start the fun. I hadn’t been to this location for a photography session in a while so it was great to reconnect with this beautiful spot. The lagoon itself is a nice contrast to the sparkling Pacific ocean right across the sand. The proximity of the lagoon to ocean really allows me to photograph different scenes with various lighting options.
Next we went up the road to Pepperdine University. The plan from the start was to head up to the school after the beach. This was especially significant since this where their relationship began while completing their education. It just happened to be that this particular weekend fell on the 9/11 memorial weekend… which created some amazing patriotic elements mixed with a certain obvious sense of sadness. I was a bit torn on how I felt, but ultimately came to the conclusion that love, freedom and new beginnings reign, even in the midst of tragedy. I hope you’ll enjoy viewing a few below!
