Favorite Wedding Photography Locations at Terranea
A – The Pathway
This is often the best location for photos of the first look and couples portraits. The walkway will be too narrow for groups. The horseshoe shape of the pathway makes this location usable for most times of the day. Here are a few examples:
B – Terranea Beach
While technically not part of the Terranea Resort, this public beach is a beautiful location for couples portraits. However, keep in mind that there is a short hike, so you will need plenty of time, an adventurous couple, and proper footwear. Here is an example:
C – Cliff Views
One of the views of the sunset is on the west side of the property. Ask the venue for a golf cart to travel to the area to avoid tiring out the wedding couple on their big day.
