Story

I documented an anniversary session for Clancey + David in the hills of Malibu in the spring of 2018. They rented this beautiful airstream airbnb (which is no longer there due to the Malibu fires later that year :( ) to shoot at and it had this little shower stall setup about 30 yards from the trailer. Clancey mentioned doing some kind of photo incorporating it. We ventured over to it and I hiked up the hill behind it to get a higher vantage of them while they stripped down and each stood in front of the sinks. This was my very last photo of the session and it ended up being one of my favorites.

Look for ways to gain a higher vantage above your couple. I feel that shooting this image from a bit higher up is more visually appealing with also incorporating the surrounding area.

Hi! I’m Jordan and I’m a wedding & portrait photographer based in Seattle, WA. I photograph most of my work out of state and end up in places like California, Arizona & Utah pretty often. I’m a huge fan of the desert and mountains and love any chance I can get to be somewhere beautiful.
