Relaxing Couple’s Session on the Beach

Whether you’re planning your honeymoon, preparing for an engagement session, anniversary photos or just want to celebrate being together, this relaxing couple’s session on the beach has the power to take us away from our desks and transport us to Mexico. We know you feel that, too. The warm sun, the dry sand, the scent of coconut mixed with the salty breeze, wafting gently towards you. That’s the power of incredible photography: it can make you feel things, it can take you places.
Though this beach session photographed by Tec Petaja features a real couple, it was a photo shoot. Still, it doesn’t feel staged, and every moment feels real. The images are effortless. Just something to keep in mind when you’re on the hunt for your wedding photographer.

We’re excited to announce that we’ve partnered with Tec Petaja to create an online course showcasing his years of experience as both a wedding and commercial photographer. Tec’s unique perspective and natural ability to tell a great story make for a friendly, easy-to-follow experience, venturing through some of the most important lessons he’s learned since the beginning of his career in photography.

We talked with him about how he got to shoot for amazing brands like Kinfolk, how he brings his A game to weddings of all sizes, how to be the kind of photographer people want to hire again and again, and so much more.




Once Wed was launched in March 2008 to meet a need in the marketplace for an online listing service for second-hand wedding dresses. Within a short time, the company had developed into an online wedding publication and resource to provide newly-engaged brides with inspiration and tools to plan their dream wedding.
