Capturing the Magic of Your Beach Wedding

You’ll remember the day all your life — the day you say “I do” against the backdrop of sunshine, lapping waves, and white sand — and you want your photos to reflect just how special that day is. But what images are the best? Well, these examples from a beachside wedding by Mary Rosenbaum can give you some ideas. Whimsical starfish can accent a plain background for a ring photograph, and that’s just the beginning. Another special moment is that pause with just you and your dad (or whomever gives you away), contemplating the captivating scene before you — your wedding party and guests, the sky, the sand, and the surf. Years from now, when you look at that picture, you’ll remember how you felt — for a memory that’s beyond price.

Other images, of course, are the same no matter where your wedding takes place: shots of the detail on yours or your bridesmaids’ shoes, dresses, bouquets and the like are always wonderful additions to the wedding album. If your cake is decorated with “outdoor” elements such as flowers or greenery, it looks especially pretty in shots from a beach celebration. With a casual atmosphere such as a beach wedding provides, the setting is perfect for lots of candids (maybe even some barefoot shots!); have your photographer ready to circulate to get them. The more relaxed the day can be for all of you, the better your personalities will shine through, and the more the photos will capture who you, your family, and your bridal party truly are…for beautiful images that will preserve your day forever.
