  • The playful, lighthearted vibe! When you’re taking photos at the beach with your babe, it’s honestly hard not to just frolick around & have a great time!! Beaches bring a lot of people so much calm and relaxation, so you can really just run around and have the best time ever.

Cons of beach engagement photos:

  • Crowds: One of the harder things about taking engagement photos on the beach is that often, beaches are crowdeddd with visitors + tourists. It can be hard to find an empty, open-enough spot so that you don’t have a ton of people in the background of all your photos! Sunrise is a great option for beach photos if it’s the busy summertime, since less people will be there. Or, going to the beach during the offseason will be way less crowded, even though it’ll be a bit chilly!

  • It’s not the cleanest: if you care a lot about your clothes & keeping them clean, beach photos mightttt not be for you! It’s likely your clothes will get sandy, dirty, wet, muddy, who knows. So don’t wear clothes that you’re not okay with getting a little messy!
