El Matador Beach is one of my favorite beaches to take my clients to because of the secret Sea Caves. So when Nicole and Eric reached out to me through Instagram giving me full range to plan the location for their Malibu engagement session I took the chance to show them how gorgeous El Matador Beach was and I knew they would love it!
Many aren’t aware but the best time to go to El Matador Beach to see the sea caves and their natural features are during low tide. Otherwise, it is impossible to take photos in them.
Nicole and Eric were a ball of joy to work with! I spent the afternoon capturing their energetic and carefree sides while we all ran along the coastline. I couldn’t help but smile while Nicole ran around dancing on the beach without a care in the world. She definitely brings out Eric’s lighthearted side, they are the perfect match!
Nicole had such a big smile on her face the entire session and kept on saying things like, “I’m just so happy.” It was so adorable! I love when my clients are completely themselves during a photoshoot as it gives so much beautiful emotion and life to the photos.
Engagement Photo Tips
One simple tip I like to give clients for photoshoots is to have fun and be yourself just as Nicole and Eric did! I know many people worry about being awkward or not photogenic but that’s never the case when you are being yourself. Plus if you have a photographer who can guide you in the right direction, you can’t go wrong!
As an elopement photographer who has been shooting elopements and engagements for quite some time, I can guarantee you that you won’t have to worry about feeling awkward or not getting the photos you want! I’m here to guide and help you pose as well as have fun!
During the time of shooting engagement sessions as well as elopements, I find myself saying that I have the best “job” in the world! Capturing a couple’s authentic love is such a magical thing and I’m so excited for Nicole and Eric’s wedding in the Spring!
