Chic Style at a Rustic Engagement Session with a Barn and Windmill | Oceanside, CA

I am so excited to share Karla and Malachi’s stunning engagement portrait session at Camp Pendleton. Trust me, the rustic charm is off the charts! When Karla mentioned this rustic barn on base as a location, it sounded like a fantastic session location! With Malachi being a Marine, they were able to sponsor me onto the site, which allowed us to capture some truly unique images. Let’s dive into the magic of their rustic engagement adventure!

The base’s rustic barn and windmill exuded old-world charm, with weathered wooden planks and an authentic feel that takes you back in time. While we were planning this session, Karla emphasized the importance of staying true to their vision. She wanted a rustic engagement that captured their down-to-earth personalities and their love for the outdoors. This location hit the mark! The barn, with its weathered red paint and vintage details, was the perfect setting for their romantic portraits.

Karla and Malachi’s rustic engagement portrait session at Camp Pendleton was a dream come true. The combination of the rustic barn, windmill, and their love for each other created a magical experience. It’s a great reminder of the importance of finding a location that speaks to your hearts, a place that allows you to express your love and embrace your individuality.
