I had the honor of photographing Ryan and Ana’s Malibu West Beach Club wedding, 2 weeks ago.
With beautiful ocean views, and gorgeous sunsets, it’s no wonder the couple chose this Malibu location for their love story. Family and friends surrounded them as they became one with much love, joy, and celebration. Can you believe they planned this wedding all while taking finals and graduating from college? As if wedding planning itself wasn’t enough (brides you know what I’m talking about!).
Ana got ready with her girls at the venue where the wedding took place. We then decided to have a first look, where Ryan gets to see his bride for the very first time in her dress. We all met at Malibu Creek State Park for this special moment. I love how Ana snuck up behind her groom as he waited patiently to see her for the first time.
After portraits at the park, we went back to Malibu to celebrate Ryan and Ana becoming one! It was a beautiful wedding ceremony overlooking the ocean followed by a fun joyous reception celebrating with loved ones. It’s always so beautiful for me to see couples honor God on their wedding day, which is exactly what Ryan and Ana did. Their relationship had Him first, and you could see His spirit all over these two as they started their life together. Sharing the same faith as Ryan and Ana, this wedding and their vows really spoke to me.
I am so excited to see these two grow as a family together over the years. Congratulations Ana and Ryan!
