There was not a single part about this day that wasn’t totally MAGICAL. These two completely alone, met me on the warm sands of El Matador at 5am to laugh, swear their vows, and to feel their love which is truly unexplainable. This love was so surreal that every word they spoke invoked connection and genuineness. Can you imagine just you and your partner running around wearing your hearts on your sleeves not a single care in the world just you two? If YES then let’s do exactly that it is your day whatever you envision for it is right!!!
El Matador beach is one of the most beautiful secret gem beaches (not a secret to wedding photographers) in Southern California. Located in the beautiful and iconic city of Malibu, this place is definitely one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever photographed and such great place for small weddings or romantic dates. Of course it is such an ideal elopement destination.
Anyone taking photos at El Matador will tell you how gorgeous it is. Rocks and stacks are scattered across the sand here, creating the perfect backdrop for a romantic getaway on the Malibu Beach. It is a boho wedding wonderland and a dream destination for a Californian photographer like me. I can assure you that you will be inspired here as your wedding day backdrop. If you love pristine beaches and unspoiled natural beauty, this is the beach for you.
The bride’s wedding dress is another shining star in this elopement (which makes sense since it’s called the Star gown). The couple decided not to spend money on a big wedding, but instead focused on their dream beach elopement and yes it was SO worth it. Nothing fits the couple’s personality more than this insanely gorgeous day.
