Brandi Potter Photography

I'm not a traditional photographer You won’t find faked moments or awkward smiles within my work. Why? Because you’ll look at these photos later in life and know it wasn’t real. If you’re concerned about getting dirty or just want me to show up and shoot, then I’m not the photographer for you, and that’s fine. It doesn’t hurt my feelings if you decide to go in a different direction, and I’d be more than happy to help connect you with photographers who may be that perfect fit.

Leo Carrillo Beach Engagement Session by Los Angeles Wedding Photographer Brandi Potter

I love Leo Carrillo Beach, and I love photographing sessions there. That section of beach is so beautiful and rocky. It’s so different from the other beaches around Los Angeles. This was the first shoot I ever did there. I was visiting one of my best friends and we went out to do a shoot before I had to head down to San Diego for a wedding.

At the time of this shoot I didn’t realize that Malibu was cloudy often. It was the opposite of what I was expecting, but I LOVED it. I was also blessed with the perfect bird formation flying overhead. I saw the birds coming while the others were shooting from up high and I was lucky enough to be able tp capture it. That is one of my all time favorite photos and I like to tell people that they only really get one good bird photo, ever.

If you need a good place to go hang out though, hit up this section of beach. It’s quiet, and beautiful. Perfect for sight seeing and watching the sunset.
