It's easy to see why Windansea beach is at the top of my list of favorite places to photograph couples for their engagement in all of San Diego. It's one of the most dramatic bits of coastline in southern California, with its graceful sweeping cliffs and clean sandy beaches. In fact, the beach is often completely covered by water unless the tide is low. We scheduled our session for early on a weekday morning so that we could take advantage of the light and gorgeous landscape before it got too crowded. We lucked into an especially low tide, which left much of the sand exposed on this usually rocky beach.
