The Malibu Creek State Park engagement session photos of Christine and Joe are some of my all time favorite – capturing the playful essence of the couple within stunning natural surrounds. Their engagement photography shoot in Downtown Los Angeles was the first time I met the couple, but there was no denying their chemistry.

They had opted to do two different e-session shoots – one in the urban setting of Downtown LA with its dramatic architecture and spectacular skylines, and the other in the warm surroundings of Malibu Creek State Park.

Downtown Los Angeles engagement session photos:

In Downtown LA we used two main settings for the engagement photography shoot – the bold, red backdrop of the Museum Of Contemporary Art and the sweeping architecture of the Walt Disney Concert Hall. Combining the rich yellow of Christine’s dress and Joe’s defined suit, I aimed to create a vibrant, urban feel that captured their relationship within this captivating city.

Walt Disney Concert Hall engagement session photos:

There was plenty of opportunity to get creative during this e-session, with strong architectural lines and reflective surfaces. It was a pleasure to work with a couple that were willing to step outside the normal bounds of a photography session, even lying on the ground so I could capture them from above!

Malibu Creek State Park engagement session photos:

For the second engagement photography session, we headed out of town to the fields of Malibu Creek State Park in Calabasas. This natural reserve is a personal favorite, with its golden tall grass creating a whimsical, vintage feel that was perfectly complemented by Christine and Joe’s picnic setting and choice of props.

The Malibu Creek State Park engagement session photos evoke warm, soft hues, and the late afternoon sun enhanced the romantic atmosphere. Again, the couple played an important role in making this e-session unique, opting to bring along personalized props which allowed their spirited and lighthearted personalities to shine through.
