Malibu elopement + intimate wedding photographer

Emma DAlessandro Photo

Hey, I'm Emma. I'm a firm believer that experiences and adventures, both big and small, are worth documenting. If I am not behind my camera, I am walking, biking, or running around with my fam exploring the best that the LA beach towns have to offer.  
I strongly believe that you should celebrate the start of your marriage in the way that feels right for you. I'll be your biggest hype woman and help you plan the elopement of your dreams while documenting the experience and emotions of your adventure. 

I'm here to capture you becoming adventure buddies for life. 

about me

-Amanda + Kevin

“Emma is not only an incredible photographer, but an incredible person. From the start of our planning process, she was such a support through helping us with suggestions, timelines, and emotional supports. We knew we didn't want a huge traditional wedding, and it's so clear from her work that she knows how to get those quiet, special moments. Her calming presence was so appreciated, she jumped in and helped with little things throughout the day, was able to direct us (who are, what you might say, goofy on camera), laughed with us, and just perfectly nailed every shot. She so seamlessly captured our intimate backyard wedding, and we are forever grateful to her for doing so. Please do yourself a favor and book her for literally every event, shoot, etc. It will be the best decision you could make! We love you, Emma. Thank you for everything!!” 


If you are nodding your head so hard your neck hurts, then you've come to the right place. I'm here to help craft an elopement experience that is so you that your photos will reflect the genuine moments that happen between each other throughout the day. The big moments and the small onesWhen you look at your photos in 10 years, I want you to relive all of the same emotions you felt during your elopement. I want you to remember how you couldn't stop laughing or how you always found a way to be touching. Because let's face it, the moments where you feel most connected are the ones worth photographing. 

have you & your partner ever thought "we are so awkward in front of the camera!"?

let's plan the coastal elopement of your dreams

You know those days where you wake up and decide to go out for coffee and then you end up at the beach for a spontaneous swim session, and then an impromptu picnic with your favorite pizza ever, and one mini adventure rolls into another until it has become the best day ever. (I can't help but picture the movie Dazed and Confused in my head). That is how your elopement day should feel. 
An elopement is all about creating an epic experience to celebrate the start of your legal life together. Whatever you are envisioning for your elopement, I am here to bring those visions to life.
