Rachael + Richard, May 2016, Malibu Elopement Styled Shoot

The first post of two styled shoots done in Malibu back in May! This one, featuring the bombshell Rachael and her dashing (aka super badass) Richard, was the elopement-styled shoot. Look at these stunnas! Their motion picture feature is the first half of this video as well. Enjoy!

I had a beautiful day shooting with some friends and these two wonderful couples! It's always nice getting to have a variety of things to shoot, and this styled shoot really brought it. More info about it in the blog post when it's ready! However, I hope the video that I captured (I am of course still learning, and kind of forgot to take video consistently throughout the day) is enjoyed! Amazing song by Jack Garatt - "Surprise Yourself" (Griffin + Manila Killa Remix)

So I hung out after the shoot to do a bonus shoot with these guys. They looked too damn cute in their matching outfits, so I snapped a few... Then got back up to the street and saw their matching car! <3

Fin! Big thanks to the wonderful Rachael + Richard!
