There's nothing like a beautiful coastal shoot and this one by Southern California wedding photographer MALLORY DAWN has the perfect mix of stunning landscapes, a gorgeous gown and a loved up couple! Gorgeous bride-to-be Jenn tells us, "Max and I met five years ago while working at Disneyland. What was a great friendship became a beautiful relationship. Although we loved our date nights at the park after work, we also loved exploring other places. Our favourite place to visit was and still is the beach. There is something special about the sound of the waves and the feeling of tranquility while being there. Max took this into consideration when he decided to propose at Makapu'u Point in Hawaii, which also happened to have beautiful ocean views. Our talented photographer Mallory, who is also Max's sister, knew how much the ocean meant to us and she gave us amazing recommendations when we asked her to photograph our engagement shoot. We ultimately went with Palos Verdes, California because of the breathtaking views that brought us back to the moment of Max getting down on one knee. We are so fortunate and grateful to have Mallory in our lives and that she was the one to capture these stunning photographs."
