Malibu Portraits (!!!!!!!) 

May 3, 2017   /   byEmma Chapman  / Categories :  Feeds

Hey, friends! Trey and I were lucky enough to get some portraits taken of us while we were in California in March. I may be biased, but I LOVE these photos—they feel like such a gift. So I thought I’d share a few with you.

These were taken at El Matador beach in Malibu. It was a pretty chilly and super windy day, and I kept thinking that I should have worn my hair up because I felt positive that my crazy wind-blown hair was going to ruin every single picture. But somehow our photographer (and friend!) Elise was able to capture so many great moments. She truly is a magician photographer. And as you can tell, she has a great eye for beautiful light as well.

Trey and I haven’t gotten pictures together in a couple years, and it’s something that I had been telling him I really wanted to do. I am SO excited to print some of these to hang in our home soon!

Thanks for letting me share! And thank you, Elise, for these beautiful portraits I’m going to cherish FOREVER. You rule, friend. xo. Emma
