Home to the famous Hotel Del and Coronado Beach, this island across San Diego Bay offers the best views of downtown San Diego and lots of photogenic portrait spots. The best time to shoot portraits on Coronado Island is when the sun is setting and the San Diego skyline begins to light up.
Weddings and portraits on Coronado Island
There’s no debate, the Hotel Del is the best place to get married on Coronado Island. But a lot of people come over the Coronado Bridge to the island just for portrait sessions. Here is a list of good portrait locations I’ve found to start with – Bayview Park, Coronado Beach, Silver Strand State Beach, Tidelands Park, Centennial Park and the little piers at Old Ferry Shopping center. A great location good for rehearsal dinners with views of downtown San Diego is the Italian restaurant Il Fornaio.
