Malibu

I’m a California adventure wedding and elopement photographer for couples in love with one another and the outdoors. If you’re ready to exchange vows amongst the Santa Monica mountains and beaches in Malibu, I’m your girl.  

Hey there, I’m Jenn!

Point Dume is one of my favorite locations in Malibu because of the variety in capturing cliffside views and moments on the beach. There's also a more secluded cove in this area. This beach has plentiful parking, a huge bonus in Malibu!

Point Dume

El Matador State Beach is no doubt very popular and has quickly become an icon of Malibu. The rock formations along the rugged coastline make for a magical and dreamy setting.

Malibu Creek State Park makes for a very picturesque spot for any elopement. There are lots of California oak trees and surrounding mountain views with easy walking trails throughout the park.

Malibu Rocky Oaks is a private Italian inspired estate and vineyard nestled in the middle of Malibu in the Santa Monica mountains. Their circular brick helicopter pad makes for a unique ceremony space with stunning panoramic views.

Deer Creek Ridge Estate is nestled on a mountain top overlooking both the ocean and surrounding hilltops. The Spanish architecture with Moorish influence makes this estate unique and perfect for any elopement or small intimate wedding.

"Jennifer's keen eye and dedication to such a stylistic approach have us loving each and every single picture captured. It was more than a pleasure to have her with us every step of that day; it was like hanging with two gal pals! We could not have asked for any better artistic vision than hers. We would highly recommend Jennifer's talent to each and every couple out there that wants something fresh and unique when considering a photographer."

- Rachel

"Jenn captures every moment at every angle. This isn't your traditional photography! This is a new age of photography where the surroundings become as important as the people! The beauty of laughter, angles, and exposure bring out perfect pictures! You will have a hard time choosing which photos you want in your album!”

- Natalie

“We hired Jenn to take our engagement photos out in Joshua Tree. She straight-up SLAYED every photo, spent so much time with us, and was so fun to work with. I cannot recommend her enough. I say this as an art director who works with photographers on photoshoots all the time at my job: hire this woman! You won't regret it.”

- Kylie

“We were thrilled with how the photos turned out. Jenn is a very skilled editor and has a wonderful aesthetic. I knew it would be difficult for my photographer husband to find a wedding photographer who he trusted, but we are both so glad that Jenn shot our wedding. She will make your vision come true and is an absolute pleasure to work with.”
