El Matador State Beach

El Matador State Beach

Just a short distance away from Los Angeles in Malibu is the jewel of El Matador State Beach with its three small cliff-foot beaches and blufftop parking. Here against this landscape punctuated with large rock formations and tumbled boulders you’ll find dramatic backdrops that create powerful views for your engagement session. 

Capture the epic and wild feeling of California with many different shooting locations that will each provide a unique look and feel. You can step down to the beach on the white-railed wooden staircase, taking in the Pacific ocean the entire time. 

For a different look, step through fields of golden grass that will fill your photos with light and soft textures against the green shrubbery in the distance. Down on the beach, lean against the rough cliffside and enjoy the feeling of having found your own personal retreat. 

At sunset, you’re in for a fantastic display of colors that plays behind the monolithic pieces of rock. The many cliffsides and rock formations can create endless combinations of pictures that will inspire you for a creative and fun session. Its stark beauty makes El Matador State Beach a fantastic spot for Los Angeles engagement photography. You’ll love the memories you make here.
