Photography in Ft Walton Beach-Destin Florida


“I love the people I photograph. I mean, they’re my friends. I’ve never met most of them or I don’t know them at all, yet through my images I live with them.” – Bruce Gilden


On location Ft Walton Beach photographer will photograph your amazing family or wedding at the beach, hotel condo or location of your choice. We love to travel and currently serve all areas in and around Destin, Ft Walton Beach, Seaside, Watercolor, and the 30A areas.

So you have booked your Ft Walton Photography session, what next?

Expect to have fun! This will not be your ordinary portrait photography session where you are told to sit and say cheese! This session will be fun, I promise! Even dad will comment about how much fun it is. We will laugh and play and have a good time while capturing your families personalities. 

I will meet you at one of our beautiful Destin, Ft Walton Beach parks, beaches or other predetermined location to photograph your family. Your session will last up to an hour. During your session we will do group shots and individuals in many combinatins and poses. If there are children in your group, oh we will have even more fun, running and playing and possibly splashing in the waves. Children don't always do well with the posey, posey stuff so we will change it up and do a little candid too enabling me to capture their amazing spirits and personalities. 


A few helpful hits that will make things run smoother:

Be on time! We are working with nature and our light will fade fast. During our busy spring and summer seasons, traffic can be a problem, so leave early in case of heavy traffic.

Bring water or juice for the kids and yourself, picture taking can be thirsty business.

Feed children before your session. Hungry kids equal fussy kids.

Get that nap in! Make sure everyone is well rested especially dad and the kids.

If you are having a beach session, it is always a good idea to bring a towel and change of clothes. It's the beach, we may get wet. Ok, well I always manage to get wet and if you want to get wet with me, well that just means even more fun. Kids love nothing better than being allowed to "go swimming" in their clothes!

Most important, bring your smile and be prepared to have fun!

What happens after your session?

Please leave your cameras and cell phones at home, in your car, etc! This is not because I'm afraid you will take your own pictures and not buy mine! It is because...

1. you hired me to take the pictures, let me do what you hired me for

2. I'm trying to get everyone to look at me, if there are other people with cameras and phones pointing at them...EVERYONE WILL BE LOOKING IN A DIFFERENT DIRECTION!

3. we will be outside, in the sand, in the water, in the woods and your stuff is going to get ruined or someone is going to have the outline of a phone in their pocket!


 When will you see your proofs:

Approximately 4 weeks after your photography session, you will receive an email with a link and the password to your online proofing gallery. Your proofing gallery will be active for 30 days and we ask that you make your selections during this time. If your proofing gallery expires and has to be reloaded, there will be a reload fee charged.

Editing:What we will and will not edit:

We take pride in our profession and the product that we deliver. All proofs will be edited for color and clarity. Minor blemishes and booboos will be remove. Stray hairs will be removed and fixed when possible. 

Removing tan lines, wrinkles, head swaps, making you look thinner and other extensive edits will be performed for an additional charge of $25 per image. These edits are very time consuming, therefor, I send them out to a pro-retouch company to prevent a backlog in my workflow.


If you have more questions, check out our FAQ page or feel free to email or call. We are happy to answer any questions you may have. The better prepared you are the more fun we will have! I can't wait to meet and photograph your beautiful family on one of our beautiful beaches or in one of our glorious parks.
