El Matador Engagement Session

The Countdown Begins...7 more days until this amazing couple ties the knot!

We met Marianna and Brian in person back in March and immediately knew that we were gonna be good friends.  They are both laid back, sweet and funny.  We are so glad that our work and their upcoming wedding gave us the opportunity to meet.

We worked out a cool package that included an engagement session based on their wants.  Marianna asked for some beach recommendations for the shoot and we suggested El Matador State Beach in Malibu because it has a mixture of beach, gorgeous rocks, staircases, and plant-life.  It also tends to be a little less busy since parking is an issue and there is a special permit needed to shoot there.

We are so glad we did because look how awesome these pics came out!

Due to the various natural elements, Marianna planned on bringing a few different outfits for them.  They were able to change in the pop-up changing room we have.  She wanted one of the outfits to look a bit bridal so we recommended bringing some flowers to dress things up a bit.

Marianna was inspired and decided to make the head-piece that you see in the pics -- I think we can all agree that it looks fabulous.

Marianna and Brian, thank you for a terrific engagement session.  We are so excited to photograph your wedding next week.  Much love, J + T
