Sweet and Simple Engagement Shoot with Turkish Travelers | Leo Carrillo

Couples Photography, Engagement Shoot


This sweet and simple engagement shoot was so intimate and romantic! This couple was in town for just two days to get eloped at the Turkish Embassy in Los Angeles before flying back to Turkey to officially wed in front of their friends and family. They had always dreamed of traveling to Los Angeles, and took advantage of their wedding vacation time to visit!

After their elopement ceremony, they wanted to take their engagement photos at the beach in Malibu. We planned to meet at one of my favorite locations: Leo Carrillo State Beach. I love Leo Carrillo for the variety of scenery and privacy. It’s one of my favorite beaches for photos.

We experienced a rare summer rain in LA on the day of the elopement. It was lightly misting at the beach in Malibu. Although it was gorgeous and romantic, it wasn’t what they had originally had in mind! They were only in town for 2 days, so there was no rescheduling. We chatted and they decided to brave through it, but let me know that they didn’t want to get wet. Not a problem! I found a dry spot and we had an amazing session together.

The session was ultra-romantic because no one else was at the beach that day. We had the entire misty beach to ourselves! The sound of the waves crashing was clear and calming. I invited them to take the opportunity to reflect on their relationship. They had been together for years, and it was so special to be able to finally become official!
