I had so much fun chasing Katelyn and Spencer around, and capturing this ADORABLE photos during their Malibu couples session. These two are genuinely some of the most energetic, absolutely fun loving and ridiculously cool people i’ve ever worked with. This shoot was SO FUN! I loved how laid back they were, and how they were down for whatever adventure came next.
We started our shoot of in the evening, hidden away on a backroad in Malibu. Katelyn and Spencer are HUGE fans of skateboarding, and I was so pumped when they told me they wanted to include that element in their shoot. I will ALWAYS encourage my couples to incorporate moments in their shoots that make them feel like their most authentic selves. The most heartfelt and genuine photos come from those moments where you and your partner are totally at ease, forgetting you’re in front of the camera, and taking the moment in together. Katelyn and Spencer wasted no time, and I love how this first set of photos turned out.
After spending some time on their boards, Katelyn and Spencer headed down to the beach. It was a pretty gloomy day, but I honestly didn’t mind at all! I love how the clouds softly filter the light coming through. They splashed around in the waves, changed their clothes, and cuddled up in the sand. They were both total naturals, and I couldn’t believe how easily their love came to life!
This shoot is honestly such a perfect example of how important it is to me that my couples feel totally comfortable and at ease. Whatever it is that makes you and your lover feel alive, bring it with you! Whether that’s hiking up a mountainside, cuddling with your pups on the beach, or jumping on your skateboards. Whatever feels best, I will ALWAYS follow your lead, and make sure you have a damn good time doing it!
Love this shoot?
