I’m Dana.
I take destination wedding photography seriously. If I’m going to book a flight and travel across the ocean for you, I should probably show you that I know what I’m talking about.

If you are near the ocean, then as a wedding photographer, I suggest you have beach engagement photos captured to celebrate your engagement!

Destinations with Dana

Hey there! My name is Dana, and I am a destination wedding photographer from California and Japan. Since I am a military wife and my husband is in the Navy, we tend to get stationed along the ocean. So, engagement photos on the beach are pretty popular. One of my engagement sessions on the beach was featured on Munaluchi Bride.

Beach Engagement Session

Regarding your beach engagement session, The West Coast has one of the best beaches for your beach engagement session. Like Hawaii, a highway along the coast (highway 1) has incredible spots to pull over, adventure down, and capture stunning photos!
