Malibu Beach Engagement Session: Josh & Brandon

Josh and Brandon are the sweetest people. They got engaged on the beach, so they wanted to be next to the ocean for their engagement photos too. We chose a quintessential stretch of rocky Malibu coastline just north of Los Angeles and they dressed to impress in black and white suits.

These two smiled every time they looked each other’s way.

I loved Brandon’s red shoes with the suit look. They were such a fun detail.

Southern California has the best sunsets. I love how they soften as they reach the distant horizon over the ocean.

These matching black-striped engagement/wedding rings are so cool! Especially when paired with their suits!

Someone later pointed out to me that the clouds between them were shaped like a heart. I didn’t see it as I shot it but I see it instantly now. I can’t help but think this is a sign that the universe brought these two together.

Nelson and Victor actually designed these shirts themselves! How cute are they?!

These matching leather moto jackets were actually a surprise gift from Nelson to Victor on their wedding day. They were customized with the words "just married" on the back. I usually advise couples not to match too much when picking outfits for your photo shoot, but I'll consider these two the exception.

You're never too old for lollipops!

I love that they both wore different colorful rainbow socks and the same shoes, so I had to grab a close-up.

These guys had the best bond with each other. They were so natural together and clearly so at ease. It just shined through in every shot.
