El Matador Beach Trash The Dress | Maria & Nick

Last weekend I got the amazing opportunity to photograph a beautiful couple on a beautiful SoCal day in a beautiful setting. Pinch me! I LOVE my life!!!! Maria & Nick attended Zoe & Nima’s wedding and that’s how they found me! I love that!!!

Maria is from Argentina and Nick is from Turkey, so when they married stateside so far from both their families, they chose to just have a low-key courthouse ceremony. And that meant they never got any wedding photos. So I was thrilled to hear that they fell in love with Zoe & Nima’s wedding images and they wanted me to capture some anniversary images for them! It may be several years late, but now Maria & Nick have some GORGEOUS wedding photos they can proudly display and share! And that makes me so happy!!! 🙂

Maria & Nick chose to do their session at El Matador Beach in Malibu! The location fit them perfectly– relaxed, natural, warm, beautiful. I am just in love with the photos!! And I’m also in love with Maria & Nick! They were so sweet, so interesting, and so much fun to hang out with!!! I’m telling you this session was everything I love about my job and more!! And now… the pictures…

We started the session on the bluffs above the beach…

These two worked it out like super models and did it SO effortlessly! I’m gonna say it has to do with their innate international flair!

That light! Swoon!!!!

I love this photo! It really shows how much FUN these two have together!

Laughter and Love are my favorite.

Love the warm sunset light!!!!

Maria, you are adorable!!!!


Awwww….I just loooove this one! All the pretty colors!

The sunset looks good on Maria & Nick!!
