We are always turning to nature for inspiration and when we planned our California trip and Malibu beach wedding inspiration, we knew we’ll take advantage of its incredible nature. With 21 miles of coastline, much of which is viewable as you travel along Pacific Coast Highway, Malibu has many beautiful beaches that would work perfectly for Malibu beach wedding. Set on an oceanfront bluff with sweeping panoramas of the Pacific, Malibu Beach is undeniably one of the most amazing beaches in California, if not the world.  Leo Carrillo State Park is a wide family-friendly beach in western Malibu a place any Los Angeles wedding photographer will find eye catching image.

The inspiration for this Leo Carrillo Malibu Beach wedding shoot was born out of gorgeous setting where we envisioned dreamy barefoot bride with a quiet and dreamy feel in soft, romantic ciel with a splash of dusky blue dress. In between North Beach and Leo Carrillo’s South Beach there is a rocky area known as Sequit Point which has tide pools and textured caves explored with our bride. Alison from LaPetiteGardenia designed an amazing loose and organic style bouquet and flower crown with touches of white cream and yellow for a perfect airy look. Such a beautiful natural setting for Malibu beach wedding perfect for Los Angeles wedding photographer with the sun setting along the Pacific Ocean requires the bare minimum of decor and we let the landscape speak for itself. We absolutely love how it conveys timeless yet something new and inspiring, perfect for the fine art and classic style loving bride. This beach has so much to offer for any Malibu beach wedding. North of North Beach the state beach continues to Staircase Beach, a narrow beach that is popular with surfers. Leo Carrillo State Park has a large campground and several hiking trails to explore on the hillside. South Beach is a nice sandy spot near the mouth of the creek that flows out from Arroyo Sequit. The southern part of this cove is Nicholas Canyon County Beach which you can walk to except at high tide. At low tide there are tide pools to explore at South Beach. Several excellent caves and tunnels can be found in the rock walls at Sequit Point for Los Angeles wedding photographer to capture. Some of these caves are only exposed at low tide and others are higher above the surf.
