When Spring and Summer roll around, I can promise you one thing: I will be at the beach. And what better reason to be at the beach than for a surprise proposal and engagement shoot? In particular, Asbury Park beach in NJ is an iconic spot for a proposal/engagement photo shoot.
I had such a blast photographing this beach proposal at Asbury park, so you can bet your bottom dollar I’ll do it again.
Having an engagement session at the beach is incredibly fun, whimsical, and makes for some great candids.
For example: wind got the hair in your face? Your partner can lovingly sweep it aside.
I believe those can’t-be-planned candid moments are some of the best, especially during an engagement photo session. It can be difficult to “produce” candids during an engagement shoot, since there are no other moving parts like during a wedding day. However, when you’re at the beach, there are SO many interactive elements that can be used in photos. It is highly encouraged to have a little picnic, splash around in the water, take a stroll along the sand/boardwalk, etc. It’s a great environment to foster loving, tender, intimate moments.
