The beach is always a firm favourite when it comes to your wedding photographs. The sea, sand, and sun make for great photographs, especially if taken at the right time, which is always the final hour of sunlight, known as the golden hour. Perth has many beach options to choose from, from the popular Cottesloe Beach, to Hillarys and Margaret River if you have chosen to travel south of Perth for your wedding. A great idea is to find a deserted section, allowing the photographer to stretch his creativity.
