Photographers and Beach Shots

photo by Joe D'Alessandro Photography

I love when wedding photographers take time with the couple alone on the beach and just capture them having time together. Weddings are about the couple (even if some people forget that) and their romance & love for each other. These emotions are best captured by experienced professional photographers who love what they do and love weddings. Below are some great shots of our wedding couples on the beach and the names of the photographers who shot them.
