I met Gage years ago when I was a motocross photographer, which now feels like another life! Gage raced professionally and was always a funny kid. Now he’s grown into a funny but responsible adult who landed an absolute babe of a girlfriend, Molly! With my upcoming move to Southern California, I was stoked to take some Laguna Beach portraits at an insanely beautiful beach.
Gage and Molly are so welcoming when I visit to Laguna. They invite me over for dinner and Love Island binge watching, of course. I’ve loved getting to know them, their relationship is so easy and I gotta admit, I’m a fan of their style. So it was a no brainer to do a portrait session with them the last time I was in town!
Laguna is home to some of the prettiest beaches I’ve seen in SoCal. We chose a favorite bay with beautiful blue water and a huge beach surrounded by cliffs. I gotta say, it made me pretty stoked to get to photograph in new places more often!
If you’ve missed the news: I’m relocating my home base to OC in March of 2023! I will still book in Hawaii and will have photographers on my team when I’m not available on the islands. Make sure you are following along on Instagram for all the updates!
