Because we're in San Diego, as wedding photographers, we do a lot of engagement sessions on the beaches in the area. Of course, the best time for a beach photo session is at sunset! We always encourage our clients to bring props or other items that relate closely to them and their lives together. This couple love to camp, so they brought a kid's tent and other items to go with it.
Getting lighting balanced with a sunset is a special skill, in my opinion, and we seem to do it very well, using a mix of of camera lighting and the capabilities of our Canon 5D mkIII cameras and fast lenses.
