El Matador

February 16th 2019

Explored El Matador Beach in Malibu. I had to find a perfect location for doing portraits for this lovely couple, and searched to the end of Google to find it — What I found surprised me: Loads and loads of people set out for the perfect Instagram photo, to the photographer shooting engagement photos.

That led us to truly explore this beach; we walked down the shoreline to find a location less saturated with people. I personally believe that while popular locations can be a great start for portraits, there are always locations to take photos on the road less traveled (literally).

I remember two things from this day:

  1. My feet really hurt from stepping over jagged rocks

  2. I couldn’t be happier to take photos for these two friends of mine. Wish you guys the best for the future!
