People from around the world choose to have a Huntington Beach wedding – and for good cause. A portrait of a bride and groom making their vows with the sun setting over the water in the background, with sand on their feet and the wind blowing their hair can be a stunning hallmark of any wedding album.
Second, be prepared with the right equipment. A cover for your lenses is a must. Sand can damage the best of lenses and water can ruin the internal workings of any camera. Also your subjects might want to get some sand off of their hands and feet. Talcum powder works well for this. Make sure you have some with you in your bag. There is a good possibility that someone may get wet. Bring a towel. You will be the hero of the wedding if someone does get too close to a wave.
Third, make sure you know what time the sun sets! If you are striving to get that perfect shot you need to know what the light is going to be light. Plan with the bride and groom the time when they will be taking portraits.
