I seriously cannot get enough of Malibu! It’s one of my favorite places for engagement sessions and Point Dume specifically has the BEST cliffside views! This was my second time shooting with Sarah and Connor and I’m pretty much obsessed with them. They’re so natural in front of the camera so my job is super easy!
We showed up about an hour before sunset - and both of us somehow got awesome parking spots right up by the trailhead! If you’ve been to Point Dume before you know parking can be the worst lol.
(Pro tip: if you don’t get lucky enough to snag one of the few parking spots near the entrance, drive down Grasswood Ave and just park along the street and walk. You’ll most likely see other cars parked there - it’s free, but make sure you’re parked within the white line or else they will give you a ticket. )
We made our way along the trail and up to the cliffs taking in the beauty of the location as we walked. I’ve been here idk how many times and I still gawk at how pretty it is every single time! It was SUPER windy once we made it to the cliffs along the water - which made for some hilarious bloopers of Sarah with her hair basically flying everywhere around her head hahaha - but ALSO gave us some pretty epic shots when the wind blew justtt right. As a photographer, I love wind! It can be pretty crazy sometimes, but once you finally figure out how to work with it, it adds so much movement to your photos and I feel like those are always the most magical 😍 Check out my favorites from this session down below!
