Or maybe I just shouldn’t try to identify birds on a phone standing in the ocean at a beach

Why are you not birdwatching?!

Tennessees don’t got no yellow feets. 😉

Not on the dorsal side of the feet like Blackpoll do. What we can see of the dorsal side of the feet is uniform in color and it looks dark to me.

Many passerines have paler metatarsal and digit pads. This is very evident when holding birds in the hand: https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/181947411

There is no striation on the mantle like I'd expect for fall Blackpoll and the bill is clearly skinny and tapered. Eyeline and supercilium are well-demarcated. This looks good for a Tennessee Warbler to me.
