What an absolutely stunning Malibu Bohemian Elopement I got to photograph recently!
Rana and Fares are from Egypt. They came to the U.S. all the way from the other side of the world because they are in love with the Malibu views! 2020 has brought a big change of plans for them too, just like so many couples all over the world. After longing to celebrate with their family and friends for a long time, they realized it just wasn’t possible to do with all the pandemic uncertainty. So they finally decided to elope and not just anywhere but in a gorgeous place with the view of the ocean and mountains! Well, breathtaking Malibu certainly fits that description, doesn’t it! =)
It meant a lot to make it perfect. Rana and I talked and planned this special day many months in advance, thinking of possible places around. And finally they found this gorgeous villa with the views to die for!
When I finally met Rana and Fares in person that day, their geniality was just shining through. It felt like I knew them for a long time and their smiles were so infectious that you just can’t help but smile back right away! It was a wonderful evening filled with pure love and joy. Kissing as the sun set beyond the horizon, with the ocean breeze playing in their hair – that was the perfect ending of that magical day!
Thank you very much for letting me be a part of it, my dear Rana and Fares!! It was truly an honor, and I’m so excited for you to see a few of my many favorites!
