Every time I do a Dudley Beach Newcastle engagement photography session I am always amazed at how beautiful this place is.
This engagement shoot was with Caroline & Bhavi who were going to get married in Melbourne. They were super sweet and a little nervous to begin with. But after showing them how good they looked and how nice the light was, they totally relaxed and just had heaps of fun.
Dudley Beach is a real hidden gem for photography in Newcastle. It is located on the southern side of Little Redhead Point and can be accessed through Dudley Beach Road which goes through the Glenrock State Conservation Area.
One of the reasons I really like it is because it is really quiet compared to other beaches in Newcastle. It is quiet because it is not a great swimming beach. It is not patrolled, the waves can be pretty big and rough and it has some serious rip systems.
But it is a long strip of sand with some really dramatic cliff at the northern end of the beach. And if you look at the photos you can see it is a beautiful beach with no one on it.
These guys had so much fun and Dudley Beach was definitely a perfect location for their engagement photography shoot.
The huge dramatic cliffs at Dudley Beach make it perfect for photography and particularly for an engagement shoot.
The sunlight streaming through the beach was just incredible. And the salty air from the ocean made an almost golden most in the sky. Sunset beach sessions are definitely the way to go for engagement photography sessions. And Dudley Beach does it perfectly.
So if you are thinking of having Dudley Beach Newcastle engagement photography session I highly recommend you have it at either sunrise or sunset. Those times of days give you the best and most flattering light for photography.
