No matter the season, a beach setting is the perfect backdrop for unforgettable engagement photos! The vast beauty of the ocean and beach have so much to offer for a variety of photos to choose from. Whether you’re dressed up, dressed down, in the water or frolicking on the sand, the beach caters to our inner playfulness and shines through in photos.


Rebecca and Brad chose to get dressed up for their oceanside photos captured by Jennifer Brennan Photography. The contrast of evening wear with the beach setting is perfect in so many ways. Their flirtation and affection is adorable as they take a stroll along the Pacific Coast only to stop for a dance in the water and a laugh on the lifeguard stand.

If you’re going to do a beach setting for your photos and not sure if it will be clear enough to allow for a beautiful sunset then go out midday for some bright and beautiful photos like Jon and Ali did.  No matter the time of day, the beach offers a natural ambiance that brings out the best in a couple’s chemistry and makes for the best kind of engagement photos.
