Malibu Coast AirBnB Elopement

This elopement was at a super cute AirBnB on the coast of Malibu! In true elopement style, it was just the two of them with their best friend officiating the wedding. These two got married right in the middle of the “panorama” and that is partially why they opted to elope vs. have a large wedding. As most couples in 2020 ended up doing also! The Malibu coast is an amazing place to get married and I always recommend it to any couple looking to do an elopement. Between the beautiful beaches and/or the amazing AirBnB’s that are available on the coast you can’t go wrong with any location you choose.

These two actually did both! First, we had their ceremony at this AirBnB that was tucked away high in the hills of Malibu. The aesthetic of the space definitely matched that of the bride and groom. I was able to still capture photos of them getting ready. It’s definitely more intimate and relaxed than a full wedding day. You’re able to take your time and things are definitely not as strict. We then had their ceremony on the back patio area of their stay. The beautiful views made for an EPIC backdrop for them to share their vows. (Which they rock, paper, scissored for to see who went first) Instead of a wine or sand ceremony, these two tied ropes together that would later be hung up in their home. After ceremony we went inside and they cut their cake! It was so cutely decorated and just enough for everyone to have a slice.

After that, we made our way down to El Matador for some bridal portraits. Although the beach was crowded, we were still able to get some amazing shots of them just as the sun was setting.

Loved this day so much, it really showcased how having an elopement really allows for you to bring in your own personality to your wedding day. You can do things your way without a timeline or anyone else telling you what has to or doesn’t have to happen. 10/10 recommend having a Malibu Coast AirBnB elopement!!! I also recommend having me be the photographer. 😉

"I came across Nicoles IG page & knew she was the prefect photographer to book with for my maternity shoot, I was so lucky to have been able to book with her last minute for I was getting closer to my due date. She was super sweet & made my boyfriend and I comfortable working with her, absolutely in love with how beautiful the pictures came out and you can tell my boyfriend and I were very comfortable being ourselves with her & she captured beautiful moments of us genuinely laughing & smiling which really left me in awe with her work! She’s an amazing photographer and the pictures she sent me literally teared me up for how beautiful they came out. 10/10 would say don’t doubt to work with her & book her! She’s worth it & she would leave you in awe with her amazing gifted talent in photography! I look forward to book with her again to do family pictures with our newborn baby!"

"My wife and I eloped in Palm Springs and Nicole was our photographer. Not only did she make us both feel super comfortable, but she really did make us feel like models/princesses and just all around special. From the moment she and David arrived, they added ease to our day and made the day flow effortlessly. She is extremely passionate about her work and it is reflected by the good vibes she exudes. If we had to do this all over again, or for any shoot at that matter, we 10/10 should choose her again. :)"

"If we had to do this all over again..we 10/10 should choose her again."

"Where do I even begin? Nicole has been blessed with amazing photography skills! If anything she's an amazing person to work with and I am so happy the way our photos came out and were captured for our special moment. These photos will be forever cherished and we can be forever grateful for Nicole and her amazing work. She is so sweet, kind, professional -her assistant helped tremendously as well! I am so happy how everything turned out and HIGHLY recommend her for future photography work. You guys are so easy to work with- very knowledgeable too! Thank you for your dedication, your time, your hard work & your blessed skills! P.S. most importantly you made us feel so comfortable and be ourselves! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!"
