Whether for the engagement session or the main event, beach wedding photos featuring sand and surf always have such a irresistibly magical quality about them. Maybe it’s the unique skies we see in the best of the beach wedding photos, with whimsical tufts of cotton candy-pink and burnt orange. Or perhaps its the way a couple can be captured in a sweet kiss that, in this heart-melting setting just screams romance, and the next moment caught playfully dashing through the sand.
Whatever the case, shores all around the world offer the perfect scene for couples seeking unique beach wedding photos of their special union.
Although it was difficult, we hand-selected our very favorite sandy shots within our SnapKnot community in 2012. Take a peek, and prepare to be wowed:
Beach Wedding Photos
“Kathlynn and Ray Gade got married on Solana Beach in Del Mar, California. This beach has beautiful cliff walls wide sand areas and rustic stairways. We loved capturing this wedding, not just because we had sand between our toes but because it was close and personal with a real casual feel. Just something about a groom with rolled up pants and a bare-foot bride.”

“Christine decided to trash her wedding dress on her five year anniversary with Jason. She picked Myrtle Beach where he proposed to her. She also found out she was pregnant only weeks before her five year anniversary. Her trash the dress photographs represent a transition in her life – the stability and reliability that comes with five successful years of marriage, and the instability and excitement that will be ushered in by her baby boy. When we set up this shot we only had one opportunity to take get this shot right, because the waves were crushing. The final result looks like water fireworks.”

“This image was shot in Crescent Bay in Laguna Beach, CA. Mike & Mandy had their first “official” date here on October 6th, 2009. The first date was really the day before, when they went and saw “Toy Story” in 3D in gym clothes”
