Engagement photos for Shirley and Jeremy at El Matador Beach

It was the hottest weekend of the summer in Southern California.  Record-breaking heat prompted everyone to head to the beach, which is also where we are shooting.  Luckily, most of the crowd were heading to Santa Monica, and once we passed Malibu, there were hardly anybody there.

El Matador Beach, just a few miles pass Pepperdine University, is beautifully secluded, with dramatic cliffs and rocks.  The mist in the air created a soft halo which accentuated the gorgeous sunset.  Apparently it’s a popular wedding photography location – there were two other couples shooting there that day.  But Shirley and Jeremy were the only couple that were actually IN the water!  Another photographer’s assistant even came up to us and told us how fun our shoot looked!  And it was! Shirley and Jeremy were playful and daring, and brought along with them lots of cute props for the shoot.  I think their energy totally shows in the photos!
