Malibu Engagement Photography: Amber and Paul

Posted in: Engagements

*** PREFACE: Holy wow, I’ve been staring at my computer screen for the better part of ten minutes trying to think of an opener for our third blog post in the past week. “Why are you having a hard time with this one?”, Erin said. “Amber and Paul are so great, we had an amazing time with them the whole day! How can you have writer’s block?”

So with that being said, I’ve now moved away from writer’s block and on to plagiarism. So here it goes… ***

Amber and Paul are so great, we had an amazing time with them the whole day! (nailed it)

These two have a kind of warning going into their engagement session. Basically in a nutshell, they said ‘good luck!’ haha. In my mind I instantly thought…challenge accepted! They knew they wanted nature and the beach, and left the rest up to us! (love it) As you’ll see, we have NO clue what they were talking about. From moment one, they were amazing in front of the camera! Erin and I were laughing and smiling non-stop as we went through our images :)

Amber and Paul have known one another for “forever” as they would say, and after being friends for the better part of a decade, a friend thing turned into a dating thing…and believe me…I can tell you that what these two have together was worth the wait. Spend 5 minutes with both of them together and you’ll see they are the two halves that make a whole. Throughout our entire time with them we were laughing and having just the best time out in Malibu; Paul and I even had a little snuggly moment (thanks for sharing him Amber), and I blame it on our mutual love for fitness and fast cars!

We were blessed to have found a weekend these two were free and needless to say, we made the most of it! In addition to having played for the Dodgers, Paul just finished a role in the new upcoming film Moneyball, with Brad Pitt. And if that wasn’t hectic enough, Amber is finishing her final months in residency in LA as an anesthesiologist! (I totally spelled that right on the first try)

Erin and I are so honored to be a part of their wedding in January at Pelican Hill in Newport Coast. Not only are they probably the busiest people you will ever meet, but they are also the nicest and most fun loving couple. We enjoyed such a wonderful dinner with them afterwards along the coast and are beyond excited to share with you some of our favorite moments with them.
