Some of you just have to have a family session at the beach, and we are with you all the way! The beach is a great choice for warm afternoons about an hour before sunset. El Matador State Beach is located near Westlake Blvd/Decker Canyon and PCH in Malibu. The beach is a great location for families and children of any age, and also for engagement sessions. Beach sessions must be scheduled well in advance to ensure enough time to travel there and back.

El Matador has a long walk down a steep hill with a lot of stairs to get to the beach from the parking lot. Avoid wearing high heels and be mindful of young children who may need to be carried.

There is an $8 parking fee when you get to El Matador State Beach – you can avoid this fee by parking on PCH and walking down the hill through the lot. You are responsible for your own parking fees.

Ventura and Oxnard beaches are also an option, if you have a special place in mind.
