If you’re looking for a photo spot with breathtaking views, coastal beauty, and just the right amount of historic charm, then we’ve got the perfect place for you. Located on the beautiful barrier islands off the coast of Long Island’s South Shore, the Robert Moses Fire Island Lighthouse is one of the most perfect photo locations we’ve ever found.
The Lighthouse, which was originally built in 1858, stands in Robert Moses State Park, almost on the western coast of Fire Island. In fact, once upon a time it was on the very edge -- but the shifting sands of the island accumulated around it, and it now stands a way back from the shore. This means that, in addition to having the beautiful Lighthouse in the background of your engagement photos, you’ll also have miles of sandy beaches to wander.
And what beautiful beaches they are! No matter the time of year, you won’t be able to resist kicking off your shoes and burying your toes in the sand. There are grassy dunes to explore, warm wooden piers to walk along, and even a lifeguard stand or two you can climb for a better view -- and an adorable photo op! If we time things just right, we’ll be able to catch a beautiful sunset, the sky turning brilliant shades of red and gold behind you while the sea sparkles out into the distance. You’re guaranteed to have a magical evening here -- and you’ll have the beautiful photos to treasure for years to come.
