The day after Sarah and Derik’s elopement at Waimea Canyon, we hiked through the jungle to this secret beach for a change of scenery!
Hey you, thanks for reading my blog!! I don't normally start out my blogs like this but I'm doing an experiment to see how many people actually read these things hahaha. SOO when you finish scrolling through these photos, give the post a "like" (it doesn't tell me who the likes are from, just how many, so don't worry I won't know who you are) and if you're coming from IG and don't mind revealing your identity, comment a BEAR emoji on my last post to let me know you saw this!
Anyways, thanks for playing along, now here's what I have to say about the photoshoot this post is actually for:
It's one of my favorites. Like I'm very much obsessed with how cute these two are together! I also have all the heart eyes for this location. Just look at that golden grass, the lake, and those awesome freaking trees all over the place. AND I GUESS we can talk about that sunset too!! Creeping through the trees all warm and cozy like God shining his love right down on us. Okay idk if that analogy works but whatever. You get the point. It was an awesome sunset that made me squeal a little. Scroll down to see some of my very favorite photos I've ever taken.
If you look up "best sunset spots in LA" Ascot Hills will almost always be a top recommendation in whatever article you click on -- and for good reason!! There are a couple different trails you can take to get up to a higher point that will give you an awesome place to catch the sunset and an amazing view of downtown LA. Anthony and Bianca are such a sweet couple and I loved photographing them.
It's not unusual that a lot of guys really aren't into doing photoshoots and Anthony admitted that at first he wasn't excited but when we were finishing up he said "this was kind of fun". Probably one of my favorite things to hear haha. I always try to make things as easy-going and fun as possible and if you're worried about having a photoshoot where the photographer tells you to smile at them the whole time, just know that's not how it will be with me! (can't say I won't encourage a lot of PDA though ;) )
Keep scrolling to see my favorites.
Vasquez Rocks is a location I've been wanting to shoot at for months and I couldn't have found a more perfect couple to photograph there. Maddy and Micheal were so fun and even though it was super cold and gloomy they killed it!
I had a really hard time narrowing these down to just a few so here are a million photos from this session because they're all my favorite!
