I had a good time photographing Tamara and Shaun in Malibu this weekend. They are getting married at the Church of Christ which sits in the heart of the Pepperdine University Campus. The campus is beautiful with tall grass, flowers, palm trees, fountains and it sits on top of a hill overlooking the Pacific Ocean. This beautiful scenery was the backdrop for their engagement session.
From Pepperdine we made our way to the “Penthouse at the Huntley Hotel.” Designed by Thomas Schoos, this restaurant is a celebration to all the senses. It’s lounge with beautiful design textures, people and the food is fabulous. As a photographer, light is a big deal and this restaurant didn’t disappoint. The entire joint is surrounded by windows and we were saturated with the golden glow of sunset. We took our seats in a cabana style booth overlooking Santa Monica and continued our engagement session while we waited for our drinks. Later that evening we crashed a group of Argentine Tango Dancers while they danced on 3rd street. Tamara and Shaun shared a kiss while they stood in the middle of all the dancers. I’m looking forward to their wedding in March 2012.
PS. Shout out to Brandon for being a great host, hope to see you again.
