Malibu will forever be one of my favorite places in California. It has the prettiest beaches and my favorite food spots. Aside from that, it also has an intense variety in locations to photograph -- here's one. Malibu Creek State Park is like Hawaii in California. It feels so otherworldly and a complete escape from the concrete jungle of LA that is not too far away. Sarung and Chandni happened to have just celebrated their one year of dating. They had dinner at Nobu before their shoot, so they were full and happy when they came to me. For this session, I shot on 35mm film to get that nostalgia feel through my images. Chandni absolutely loves film, so this was particularly exciting and special.
Before our session, I spoke to my couple about outfits and how I really wanted their clothes to compliment the colors of our space. Chandni wore a beautiful olive green slip and stunning pieces of gold Indian-inspired jewelry to really make her accessories pop. I fell in love immediately when she showed up. Sarung complimented his partner's outfit so well, and by doing so, also complimented our location and the colors within it.
MALIBU CREEK STATE PARK
We started our shoot during the tail-end of golden hour. We continued through blue light. The sun was peeking through the trees onto the golden field that dried up over the summertime. It was absolutely beautiful and a total dream to shoot this session in film. It truly is an entirely different feel and so absolutely nostalgic. I did also photograph the session with my digital camera but I am only highlighting the film photography in this post. I hope you love it.
If you are interested in doing a film photoshoot, or any kind of photoshoot in this beautiful location -- please reach out and let's talk. I would absolutely love to make it happen and photograph whichever part of your journey, even without a particular event.
Reach out and let's talk about your session!
