Kim & Viet

Nikala and Connor’s sunset engagement photos on Coronado Beach were so incredibly romantic! Connor’s family vacations to Coronado every summer, and last summer, he asked Nikala to marry him in front of the Hotel Del Coronado! They left last year with the best memories, so it was a huge honor when they asked me to take engagement photos at the place they decided to make it official!

Coronado Beach And The Hotel Del Coronado

I’ll be honest, I’m a little obsessed with the oceanfront beaches of Coronado. They hold so much history and even a few well-kept secrets! Did you know that Coronado is a true natural beach? This means all of the kelp that washes up stays put to help natural ecosystems. And just south of the Hotel Del, you can spot a ship wreck at Coronado Shores beach! My favorite (not so) secret fact about Coronado Beach, is that the sand dunes where we shot these engagement photos actually spell out Coronado from the sky!

Sunset Engagement Photos On Coronado Beach | Wardrobe Inspiration

Nikala nailed it with her wardrobe pick for her sunset engagement photos on Coronado Beach! She chose the most beautiful blush gown – you can find a similar blushy engagement dress at Lulus – and Connor had beachy light colored pants and a light blue shirt. I highly suggest going with a light blue color if you have light green or blue eyes! These colors with a nice tan make your eyes pop!

I’m so thankful that you chose me to document these sunset engagement photos at the Hotel Del Coronado. I wish you both the best of luck at your Texas wedding! 🙂
