Cycling in Malibu Canyon Engagement Photography El Matador, Malibu

with our lovely couple, Christy + Nick

Well, technically this isn’t an engagement session….Christy and Nick are already married and had the full wedding and all, but were hoping to get engagement style photos of them doing their favorite hobby together….Cycling!!  My dad was actually an amateur cyclist too, so that combined with shooting triathlons helped with creating some fun and unique couple Malibu Canyon engagement photography.

We started the shoot in Malibu canyon, doing multiple passes to get different angles and what not of them cycling.  They also had different cycling jerseys to model for the shoot.  Then we went down to EL Matador Beach in Malibu to finish off the shoot with beach photos and sunset photos (though the sunset is usually blocked by the cliffs there).  I came up with some AWESOME photos of the blue hour after the sunset.

This Malibu engagement photography session was shot in Malibu Canyon and finished at the El Matador Beach.  For more examples of Los Angeles engagement photography, make sure to check out the rest of our wedding blog! We also have more current wedding photos on our Instagram, which shows what we have been up to recently. We tend to experiment a lot, so definitely check out how our work progresses and changes over time as we try new things.

Malibu Canyon feels like a remote location even though it’s in close proximity to Los Angeles and Santa Monica. It’s many beaches, such as El Matador beach and Zuma Beach, are hidden gems. Make sure you choose an engagement photographer familiar with the ins and outs of these locations, especially since not all of it is accessible.
