Just a few of my FAVORITE spots to do Beach Photo Shoots on the Island!
When planning a family photo shoot many of my clients rely on me to suggest the perfect spot for their memorable photos while visiting Galveston! I am always trying to make things convenient for my clients, especially those with multi family members or small children. Although I have my FAVORITE places to shoot I also do ON LOCATION shoots where I meet you where you are staying when renting beach front homes. Here are some of my favorite spots and samples of photos in each location. You can choose what fits your style and vision best for your family photo shoot.
Here are some more great tips for WHAT TO WEAR for your beach session!
Beachtown is a quaint little beach front community on the East End of the Island. It has so much character with beautiful landscaping, picturesque white mini pavilion and walking bridge leading to the beach.
This is a wonderful place at the East End of the Island. It is mostly secluded and you can conveniently park right next to the beach. This spot yields the best sunsets! Enjoy fluffy sand, driftwood for sitting, yellow flowers and dunes plus a beautiful backdrop lined with palm trees!
Pocket Park 2 is located at 11745 San Luis Pass Road on Galveston’s West End. It has convenient parking near the beach and outdoor showers to rinse off your feet. There is a nice wooden covered pavilion for shade and wooden stairs for photos along with sandy trails leading to the beach!
This spot is a secret treasure, surrounded by beautiful and colorful coastal beach homes. So much versatility in one spot for the perfect family photos! Featuring green grass with large pond, palm trees and island flowers, wooden boardwalk to the beach, soft and fluffy sandy trails, large driftwood and secluded access to the beach for the perfect family pics!
Jimmy's Fishing Pier has a wonderful covered area for gorgeous photos providing some shade. The pylons make for interesting photos with the sea as your backdrop! Beautiful sunset area! The large mossy rocks lends a special magical touch to your photos!
Photos under the Pleasure Pier are vacationers favorites!!! In additional to being in the shade it makes for beautiful photos. Photos with the colorful Pleasure Pier in the background and shots out on the jetties are also popular in this area.
For vacationers staying on the far West End of the Island, Pointe West is a great spot to meet for photos! There is much versatility and options here for photos. Offering grassy trails, rustic wooden boardwalk to the sea, wooden steps, sandy trails and beautiful sand dunes. This is a very secluded spot and great for multi family photo shoots and there always seems to be driftwood on the beach for gorgeous photos. This spot is also one of the best for beautiful sunset photos.
There are so many beautiful beach rentals on the Island and lots of families choose to stay in beach front homes. For larger families staying in beach front homes it is sometimes convenient to meet at your beach rental and take photos at the beach at your location.
