There are so many beaches in California for photo shoots, but my all time favorite one would have to be at Point Dume. If you have never been you must check it out! It is located on the far left side of Zuma Beach and is below a cliff. You can climb over some rocks which will lead you to a smaller beach that is also really pretty. If you go on top of the cliff you can see a really nice view of Malibu and the sunsets are amazing. This is a great location to shoot before the sunset when the lighting is golden. I recently did a shoot with Mackinley there, check out the picture below!
