Romantic Malibu Elopement by Alice Ahn Photography
You are a poem I keep on writing
A book I can’t put down
A story that is never-ending
A page I cannot turn.....

As we stand at the end of the earth we look forward into the unknown and find comfort in knowing that our journey has only just begun. We look ahead with love in our eyes and an immense warmth in hearts for we hold the hands of the one dearest to us. We embrace for the future and jump knowing that they will always catch us.

Created exquisitely by Joy Proctor, and captured by Donny Zavala Workshop attendee Alice Ahn, today were lead to just that place and were entranced by every beautiful moment and stunning image.

From photographer Alice Ahn: "I cannot express how stunningly this shoot was thought out and styled by Joy Proctor at the most appealing venue in California.  I personally had so many awe moments seeing the greatness of the view from Malibu Rocky Oak Estate.  What the estate can offer was phenomenal - chic blue infinity pool with high ceiling grand rooms.

Seeing her styling and paying attention to details, I was more enthusiastic than ever to bring the most out of this beautiful curation.  I focused on bringing in the Musat dress’s edgy lines and reminiscent of Greek goddess with subtle movements.  I saw that Joy Proctor and Donny Zavala aimed to create an intimate environment with sophistication and simplicity. I was able to capture the most romantic and elegant scenes."

I aim to capture a couple’s candid and real emotions over the course of the wedding day with film and digital photography. I love photographing a subject in natural light, especially with beautiful scenery, creating romantic, airy and timeless images.

When I shoot weddings, I transform the the joyful, ephemeral moments of the father-daughter dance, the first kiss, the cutting of the cake, and all of the other moments that comprise a wedding into a series of beautiful and emotional mementos that a bride and groom and their loved ones can treasure for the rest of their lives.
