El Matador Engagement Session || Malibu Wedding Photographer

Any early morning at El Matador Beach in Malibu is MAGICAL!
I met this sweet lady, Chelsea, through one of my amazing brides. They came to Pinewood Social while I was in Nashville to meet up and talk about wedding planning. Chelsea is the Maid of Honor at this particular wedding and we immediately hit it off over a bowl of brussel sprouts!

Chelsea and her fiancé, Mark, flew in from Texas for our sunrise engagement session. We had a blast splashing through the water, waiting for waves, and frolicking through the sand.

If you’re ever around the area or just fancy a photography session around any of the California beaches, I totally suggest going in the morning for a private and more intimate setting - way less people around and so much gorgeous filtered light.
