Venice Canals and Malibu Engagement featured on Inspired by This!
With two of the most incredible locations in LA, Emily and Drew’s Venice Canals and Malibu Engagement session is one for the books! Since these two live in Venice right near the canals, they wanted to capture some images in their neighborhood before heading to my favorite secret spot in Malibu for the second half of their session. E + D moved to LA from Atlanta recently, and have really embraced everything about it and wanted to have a truly California engagement session. Especially because their spring wedding would be taking place back home in Georgia. I love these first images, right on the canals’ bridges and walkways. Such a magical setting for engagement photos!


Emily should seriously consider a career as a model! I love this shot of her above.


After shooting around Venice, we jumped in the car and drove up the coast to Malibu. This location is what I like to call my ‘secret spot’ because I rarely see other photographers there and I hardly ever find images from it anywhere! We started off by shooting off of a trail which was blooming with white flowers. I loved how it looked in contrast to Emily’s floral dress.


Need some inspo for what to wear for your Malibu engagement session? Take notes from Em + Drew! I love Emily’s floral maxi dress and Drew’s casual jeans, white shirt and cool oxford shoes were a great choice!

As the sun set and we got into that perfect California golden hour light, Emily + Drew were beginning to really look like pros in front of the camera! They were super relaxed and, most importantly, enjoying their session.


Big congrats to these two on their Venice Canals and Malibu Engagement! See more engagement sessions here!
