Victoria Wedding Photographers // Exploring the rocky Sandcut Beach on Highway 14.
Fewer things in this world are nicer than a Westcoast sunset at the beach, so when Elizabeth and Will suggested doing their engagement session at Sandcut Beach, just north of Sooke, we were all about it! It's become one of our favourite island spots since moving over from the mainland.
The walk down to the beach crosses over boardwalks through mossy forest, through tunnels of enormous west coast trees, up root-covered hills, and finally, descends down a staircase that emerges onto a beach covered in large rocks. As the waves lap at the shore you can hear the peaceful repetitive chatter of the stones rolling out with the waves.
This evening at the beach was no exception to the beauty we've come to know of Vancouver Island's west coast beaches. Elizabeth and Will wandered the beach hand in hand, traipsing over rocks and logs, up onto waterfall ledges, and basically anywhere I pointed. We love adventurous couples! The waterfall was a bit low on water, but it gave us the opportunity to explore the river pools and grooves in the rocks up above the falls.
We ended the shoot just as the sun dipped below the horizon, heading back into the dark trail to the parking lot. It was an awesome evening! Thanks, Liz & Will!
