malibu engagement session


February 7, 2022

This beautiful location made the perfect backdrop for Samantha and Curtis’ engagement session! These two are getting married this fall at the Spanish Hills Country Club and I cannot wait for their wedding day. Samantha and Curtis actually met in Westlake Village, at the Stonehause, the wine bar at the Westlake Village Inn. Last May, for her birthday, Curtis surprised her with a road trip that he planned out all on his own. As both lovers of wine, he planned out the most amazing trip to Northern California beginning in Carmel, then San Francisco, Sonoma, and ending in Napa. On their first evening in Carmel, they stopped at the beach to pop some champagne and have a little charcuterie picnic on the beach before dinner. And that’s where he popped the question!

And that brings us to our engagement session in Malibu! Although they did tell me that they were very awkward in front of the camera, you definitely cannot tell looking at their images. (That’s where having a hands on and directional photographer is so helpful. 😉) The weather was great, they couple was fun, and everything turned out so perfect for their session! I have a feeling their wedding day will be the same exact way!





auras biggest dreams for the year to come

"she did an amazing job guiding us And posing us to help us look our best."

We absolutely loved working with Aura! She was so kind and easy to work with and was very responsive to questions throughout the whole process. We were able to do an engagement photo shoot with Aura and she did an amazing job guiding us through it and posing us to help us look our best. On our wedding day, Aura made us and our bridal party/family members feel so comfortable and posed us perfectly. She did an incredible job getting all of the shots that we wanted and it was so fun to look back on the day through her photos and relive these moments. Aura is a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend having her photograph your special day! 


"She really cares about the couple and you can tell in her work."

For two people who hate taking photos, she made us feel so comfortable and provided wonderful direction. She really cares about the couple and you can tell in her work. She is timely, efficient, organized and understood what photos we wanted. She also sent preview photos that night!! We cannot thank her enough for the wonderful photos that we have the remember our day with! We plan to use Aura for many many more photo sessions down the road. Highly highly recommend her! So grateful. 


"I cannot say enough good things about
Aura and her incredible work."

I cannot say enough good things about Aura and her incredible work. She directed me through the poses and was also open for suggestions of certain thing we wanted to do; ex: our just married jean jacket photos. Overall, my experience with Aura was above and beyond my expectations. She delivered the photos in a very timely (within a month) and efficient manner, which I was very happy about. I truly recommend Aura to anyone looking to capture breathtaking photos of your special occasions. I will definitely be hiring her again when it comes time to celebrate another joyous occasion in my life. 


"you can tell that she is really passionate about what she does!"

 She was really easy to work with and from our first conversation, you can tell that she is really passionate about what she does! on our wedding day, she did a great job capturing candid photos and she was really a pleasure to work with! She was patient with us and our bridal party and was able to capture the most perfect moments! What's more is that she was able to give us a sneak preview of our wedding photos just 2 days after our wedding, which I thought was amazing. I would 100% recommend Aura as a photographer for your special moment/event! She's really friendly, genuine, and easy to work with so you can't top that!
