Annie and Jon are great friends of Kristen and Dan’s, and after seeing their El Matador engagement images they called me and asked if I would photograph theirs as well (ultimate flattery!). So a lovely Malibu beach engagement session we planned just by the pier and then onto the Malibu Country Mart. On the day of their session, who would have known that the waves would sweep to record breaking heights of 15 – 25 feet. Needless to say the pier was closed, in my search for a plan B beach location I discovered the Malibu Lagoon Park, and it was perfect. Annie and Jon kept us all laughing throughout the session and well into their evening, romantically lit portraits. There was an easy flow to the session that must have blossomed from their seven years together, and to document the beginnings of their next journey together was a true gift. Congratulations Annie and Jon!!
