Destin Beach Photographers: One of the best parts of our job is getting to meet great people and this family was no exception. Living in Texas, this was their first visit to Destin and also the first time these adorable one year old twins had been photographed professionally.  When they contacted us about their beach portraits, we knew immediately that we were going to be a great fit.  We arrived in time to get to know the kids and then started a hour of fun chasing these two cuties around and capturing their first trip to the beach.

If you’ve been dreaming about that huge wall canvas of your family on the beach, this is the time of year to do it. Maybe some large photos of the kids hanging above the sofa too?  We still have some limited availability for beach photos in July and August, so don’t wait to book your own session. These are memories you’ll cherish for years to come.

Rosemary Beach Wedding – We always get excited when Jennifer from It’s a Shore Thing contacts us to meet a bride because we know it’s going to be a beautiful event with the best vendors in the area.  Amy & Chad’s Rosemary Beach wedding on the Western Green was no exception. They booked us almost a year ago, which worked out great since May 14 ended up being THE most popular wedding day of the season.  Every detail of the wedding was just beautiful, from the blue shoes Amy chose all the way to that chocolate buttercream groom’s cake. It couldn’t have been a more perfect afternoon.

We have been itching…. ITCHING to show these for about 3 weeks now.  Lauren and Marc tied the knot this past weekend, so we can finally post some of her beautiful bridal session photos.  These were actually taken on two different days in two completely different locations, the last with her horse Warrior.  We’ll have a quick preview of their wedding soon, so enjoy these for now!

The first session was photographed in South Walton County at some of their amazing venues:

This session was photographed on her parent’s farm.  It was a brilliantly sunny afternoon and the lighting was amazing….. Warrior was a little grouchy, but Lauren comforted him very well.

Alrighty! Here is part 2 of William and Sidney as promised. Seriously, I’m still in awe every time I see these photos. It was a Halloween with a sunset that is just burned in my head. If you missed part 1, you can click HERE to see it.

Halloween of 2009 will be one of those wedding days we’re not soon to forget. Sidney and William chose Rosemary beach for their October 31, wedding with all of its charm which matches their personalities to a Tee. Everything lined up perfectly for their wedding as usual with the help of the “It’s a Shore Thing” crew. Rae did a bang up job on their Atlanta e-session back in September that we will be blogging with our many other Fall e-sessions soon. For now, enjoy part 1 of their wedding post. Part 2 will follow soon!
