Couple Session in Malibu

Meet Jeanette & Steven.

These lovebirds are not only passionate about each other, but they also love the outdoors. So naturally, we planned the perfect location for them-the hills of Malibu!



I LOVE the vibrant color Jeanette wore & since this was shot during Spring, the yellow flowers really compliment the final photo!





Outfits- I always recommend bringing 2-3 outfits for any session because I want you to have more variety when looking through your photo gallery. One can be a casual outfit, the other a more formal. But, I always suggest you bring clothes that you feel comfy and confident in because we can see that shine through in your session. After this set of photos were done, my couple changed into their second set of clothes.

Be You- My number 1 goal as your photographer is to always make you feel comfortable to be yourself. Steven and Jeanette wanted to show their personality by getting some fun shots of them jumping. I always welcome any kind of idea for photos/poses because after all, they are YOUR photos and I want you to love them!



OMG! They also brought their adorable doggy to their session!

This is THEE SHOT I had in mind- My absolute favorite picture from this session!

Behind the Scenes: In this shot, my assistant Evelyn is lighting my couple as they are all across the street from me. I really wanted to use my 70-200mm lens because of its amazing compression! Below are the results.


After this, we headed to El Matador Beach to wrap up their session. I was super excited to share with them this location because they have never been before. But after getting to know them a bit better, they mentioned that they would be moving the same week of our shoot to Colorado. I really wanted to make their session memorable, so we had to get there quickly to catch a sunset.




& WOW...what a sunset!



I really hope you enjoyed Jeanette & Steven's couple portrait session in Malibu. It was a pleasure working with both and I'm happy to say that they enjoyed it as well. Check out Jeanette's review below uploaded on The Knot :)
