Maddie and Alex’s Catalina Island engagement photos were insanely gorgeous and intimate. When Alex reached out about surprising Maddie at their family home in Catalina Island, I was ecstatic! Alex proposed in front of family and friends in an intimate dinner. When I arrived the next day, it was all celebrations, love and excitement.
This was my first trip to Catalina Island. You can take a boat from Southern California to Avalon, California and it truly feels like you are arriving to Italy. It is so private, quaint, and everything is up on a hill overlooking the gorgeous ocean. It is truly incredible – if you have never been it is definitely a Southern California bucket list destination!
We started taking their engagement photos at their family home. The home has a stunning view of the water up on the hill, this is the same place where Alex had proposed to Maddie the night before. Next, we took a golf cart around the island and explored different spots! There are so many areas to explore on Catalina Island for their engagement photos and it felt like we had the island to ourselves.
As a destination wedding photographer, I love being able to travel and explore new locations with my couples. When they take me to places that are meaningful to them as a couple it is even more special. If you are looking for a photographer to capture your engagement or love story, please reach out! I love meeting new people and being able to document their love story as uniquely as it is!
Maddie and Alex are as kind and sincere as they are gorgeous! They truly are a stunning couple. Their love is apparent and I am so thrilled I got to capture their love and be a part of their story! For more engagement inspiration, be sure to check out my other blog posts!
