El Matador Beach Engagement
With each step I felt the familiar squish of sand beneath me. The waves gentle hush rolled ashore and swept back out again. The sun beat down on my skin, wrapping around me like a warm blanket. Sounds like every summer day right? Except this is exactly how I felt during Chanelle and Evan’s engagement session this past JANUARY. Yes, you heard me right. We had a glorious 90 degree beach day in January. Yes, Southern California can be wonderful sometimes.
These two took me to the most amazing beach in Malibu. El Matador beach, was so charming with all of the gorgeous rock structures, clean stretches and some of the most amazing golden light! I loved walking along the beach and finding new little nooks and getting to know these two more. With each step, I found a new rock structure that had the perfect look and light. I am totally hooked–this place was totally worth battling LA traffic!
As we explored the beach, I got to know Chanelle and Evan better and these two just blew me away with how well traveled they are! From Italy to Seattle these two have went on so many adventures together and I totally had wanderlust envy. They reminded me so much of Greg and I in our early dating days. These two love picking up their cameras and exploring–which was basically our pre-Makenna life. I can’t wait to see where they go next and see the gorgeous photos from it!
