Point Dume Malibu Elopement

Gina and Yoshi reached out to me to photograph their Point Dume Malibu elopement when they realized they could no longer have their large wedding in 2020. Gina had seen my previous elopement I had done at Point Dume and immediately knew she needed me to capture her special day! She was an absolute pleasure to work with, we always talked on Instagram and continue to talk to this day.

The days leading up to their elopement Gina and I had a running joke of sending each other vomit emojis to show her excitement for her elopement. When I finally met Gina in person it felt like I was photographing an old friend from high school! We were so excited to see each other and I feel like our friendship that formed over Instagram helped the day run smooth.

The evening started off with a first look on an enclosed platform overlooking the water. It was SUPER windy that day but Gina and Yoshi made it work and they looked like models. After we did their first look we quickly moved on to family portraits and bridal portraits. This was when we started the ceremony as the sun was finally starting to set over the horizon. Gina and Yoshi were still able to do a Catholic ceremony even though it was an elopement, and it was beautiful! I’m so happy to have been part of this day to capture another Point Dume Malibu elopement. I know I’ll be friends with Gina and Yoshi always!

I want to give a special shoutout to the rest of the team that made this day special! Kendall is an amazing videographer based in Los Angeles. Joyce of Tatum and Charlie made the most beautiful arrangements. Veronica of HMN by Veronica beautified my bride and made her picture ready. This day would not have ran so smoothly without them!

"I came across Nicoles IG page & knew she was the prefect photographer to book with for my maternity shoot, I was so lucky to have been able to book with her last minute for I was getting closer to my due date. She was super sweet & made my boyfriend and I comfortable working with her, absolutely in love with how beautiful the pictures came out and you can tell my boyfriend and I were very comfortable being ourselves with her & she captured beautiful moments of us genuinely laughing & smiling which really left me in awe with her work! She’s an amazing photographer and the pictures she sent me literally teared me up for how beautiful they came out. 10/10 would say don’t doubt to work with her & book her! She’s worth it & she would leave you in awe with her amazing gifted talent in photography! I look forward to book with her again to do family pictures with our newborn baby!"

"My wife and I eloped in Palm Springs and Nicole was our photographer. Not only did she make us both feel super comfortable, but she really did make us feel like models/princesses and just all around special. From the moment she and David arrived, they added ease to our day and made the day flow effortlessly. She is extremely passionate about her work and it is reflected by the good vibes she exudes. If we had to do this all over again, or for any shoot at that matter, we 10/10 should choose her again. :)"

"If we had to do this all over again..we 10/10 should choose her again."

"Where do I even begin? Nicole has been blessed with amazing photography skills! If anything she's an amazing person to work with and I am so happy the way our photos came out and were captured for our special moment. These photos will be forever cherished and we can be forever grateful for Nicole and her amazing work. She is so sweet, kind, professional -her assistant helped tremendously as well! I am so happy how everything turned out and HIGHLY recommend her for future photography work. You guys are so easy to work with- very knowledgeable too! Thank you for your dedication, your time, your hard work & your blessed skills! P.S. most importantly you made us feel so comfortable and be ourselves! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!"
