30 Gorgeous Beach Engagement Shoot Ideas

Summer is the best time for going to the beach, which is perhaps one of the best places to get engaged, especially if you like the sea. If you are planning an engagement shoot on the beach, there are some ideas you may use for the best pictures and the most unforgettable moments, let’s get started.

Outfits

Rock something cute and comfortable according to your style and maybe your swimwear, too – it depends on the weather, setting and feel of your shoot. Don’t wear something that you usually don’t, for example, if you aren’t used to wearing skirts much, don’t wear one, otherwise you’ll feel very uncomfortable and it will be seen in the pictures. Don’t forget that your outfits should echo somehow, it should be a stylish couple look, so decide together what you’ll wear.

Beach

Now let’s have a look where you can pose and take pics. The first thing that comes to your mind is the beach itself: use every landscape feature you have and make your photos even more special. Use rocks, pierces, grass; create your own picnic setting and place a lot of candles around for a more romantic look.

The Sea

Use the sea around you to advantage: get into water to have fun and get unforgettable picture – it’s the sea, everybody loves it! Walk together in the water, kiss, hug and just have fun, let him carry you – you photographer will do the rest.  You can walk, stand and even sit on the ground and enjoy the sea waters around you.

Glam Shoots

This is a separate point in my roundup because we see more nand more of non-typical exquisite beach shoots, which are far from casual and look stunning. If you are a glam couple, don’t be afraid to show off your style and take gorgeous pics in the attire you like and with lush refined touches. Put on a stunning and jaw-dropping dress, dress up your groom into a tuxedo, take a cool bouquet and a bottle of champagne and show off the glam! Get inspired!
