Our magnificent California beaches provide an ideal setting for capturing images you will treasure for years to come. Over time, the beach has become one of my favorite choices for photographing my clients because it highlights everyone in the best light.

Ideal Environment

The consistently mild temperatures along the coast keep everyone looking fresh throughout a photoshoot in both winter and summer. The golden glow of sunset behind the ocean provides great lighting. I also find clients relax, becoming almost playful, as the ocean’s water splashes at their feet. The payoff is lively and bright candid images.

Ideal Background

The clear background opens up clothing options since there is no worry about clashing with textures or detailed prints. Even with the perfect outfit, a photo can be ruined when a random object shows up in the background. Fortunately, editing out an unwanted item is easily done in a photo taken at the beach.

Ideal Results

At the end of the day it is all about stunning results. You want your images showing you and your loved ones looking your best from every angle. Whether you want photos to show off your California lifestyle or remember a favorite vacation along the coast, consider a beach setting for your next photoshoot. The beach is a perfect choice for wedding, engagement, proposal, and family photos.
