El Matador Beach Los Angeles Engagement Pictures for Emily and Ford



Hey everybody!

I couldn't be more obsessed with this engagement session at El Matador Beach near Los Angeles. I've been shooting a lot on the west coast lately and continue to be amazed at the incredible landscapes and light Los Angeles has to offer.  Don't get me wrong, I love my Fayetteville locations (and Little Rock, and Dallas), but it's so cool to walk up to a new scene and just be suddenly inspired.

When Emily threw out the idea of engagements at El Matador Beach, I immediately googled it to see what it was all about.  I knew that we could make some gorgeous engagement portraits there. And El Matador Beach is close to this other location I had previously spotted so we shot there as well.  Take a look!
