Dream Destination Beach Weddings

March 7, 2022

If you stumbled on this blog you are probably considering having a beautiful beach wedding! First things first, congratulations! Throughout my career, I have photographed weddings and elopements at the most beautiful beaches from the California coastline to Mexico. I have gained so much experience and have so much advice to share to couples looking to elope and/or get married in paradise! In this week’s blog I want to share with you some of the biggest things to think about when planning a beach wedding. Let’s get started!

1. Expect Wind!

I think it’s safe to say everyone knows there’s wind at the beach. But you would be surprised how many people forget or underestimate windy weather conditions. There’s days that will have more wind than others. Don’t let the wind ruin your day! Make the best of it! When considering pictures of your big day,  wind can add emotion and movement. 

2. Hairstyle

This ties right in with your beach day wedding weather being windy more than usual. Have a back up hairstyle in case it’s really windy or set on a hairstyle that will go with the wind and still look good. A bonus tip is to stand  based on which way the wind is blowing and that will help as well! 

3. Clothing and Dress!

Make sure you choose a dress that is not too heavy or blow open in the wind. Also tell your guests to wear something light and beachy. Beachy means something light and airy with not too many layers. Most beach locations will be hot! And  guess what? Since your wedding will be at the beach, you don’t have to wear shoes!!

4. Your Date

I would definitely recommend you take your time and pick a good date for your beach wedding. Check weather conditions and trends on when the weather is a little warmer at the location you choose. Choose a weekday instead of a weekend. Can you guess why?? Bingo! Less crowds and traffic!!

5. Weather

Much like the wind factor, different destinations have different seasons. Do your research on what months rain the most so you don’t pick a month that it does. This rings true for the amount of seaweed that ends up on the beach. You don’t want to go when it’s the high season for it. Of course, we can’t control the weather and it might rain even when it’s off season. However it is a big help to plan your big day around hurricane season. Just remember to enjoy your day even if it rains. Cloudy days make the most beautiful photos!

6. Vendors!

I always recommend local vendors or someone who is very familiar with the location. They know the most for your location and will help you plan the best. Vendors that know the seasons and that can also have a plan b if it rains. I have worked with so many amazing vendors during my time photographing beach weddings, and I can always recommend my favorites if you decide to go forward with a beach wedding!

I hope this helps and hope you have an amazing beach wedding, need a photographer let me know =))

"We are so happy we decided to have Lety capture our wedding."

My husband and I both knew it was very important to have beautiful photos for future memories of our wedding. We are so happy we decided to have Lety capture our wedding as the photos turned out amazing. She was extremely flexible due to covid.


"Would absolutely recommend if you need to book a destination wedding or engagement session.."

Working together was a dream! Her expertise and clarity with shooting and prompts was top notch- you can really tell she has the experience and know how of a seasoned wedding photographer. Would absolutely recommend if you need to book a destination wedding or engagement session. We shot with Lety in NYC and she handled the city like a pro !

"Lety is the vendor I was most confident in."

Working with Lety has been a dream! We booked her for our wedding this past weekend, and had an engagement shoot as well. Lety is so fun to work with, and her work is absolutely gorgeous! A friend even said we should use her photos as wallpaper :)
She makes us feel natural and nothing felt awkward at all
Out of all the vendors I hired, Lety is the vendor I was most confident in - she made it so easy for everyone being photographed feel relaxed and made it fun! Cannot recommend her enough
“If she can make my face look good in photos, she can make you look amazing” -husband


"Working with Lety was a complete dream!!"

From the 1st meeting we had with her, she was super interested in getting to know us as a couple. This shows up in our pictures. She totally nailed our love, and how much we value having fun together. On the day of the wedding, she worked seamlessly with our other vendors and made us feel at ease. When you hire a wedding photographer, you hope that you get a handful of good pictures after the wedding that you like. For us, we have so many beautiful shots, they look like artwork, and I can’t wait to get them hung on walls. Lety takes such pride and dedication in her work. She truly cares about the couples she works with. We loved working with her!
