Beach Photography on the Emerald Coast

The emerald coastIt’s the perfect season for beach photography along the Emerald Coast! Can’t you just see it now?  Visit one of the Emerald Coast cities which include Destin and Fort Walton Beach and are simply beautiful for those fall visitors who want to live like a local for a week with less crowded beaches and lingering summer weather.

Most of our neighboring states have fall break, if you live in one of these states, take the opportunity to visit the beach if for nothing else but to see the most awe inspiring sunsets of the year. It is also a time to try some of our most popular restaurants like The Red Bar, Bud and Alleys and Harbor Docks without the several hour wait you may experience at our peak season during the summer.

A random fact you may not know is there are 13 beach access points within the city limits of Destin. Eleven are city-owned facilities, one site is owned by the county and one site is owned by the state. Parking is limited at the city beach access points and many only provide access to the beach.

For people without children October also has some fun activities. From October 5-9th you have Fudpucker’s Beachside Bar & Grill’s Four Player Volleyball Tournament is beach volleyball at its best. Plus, there is a volleyball clinic, players’ party and golf tournament as well. Cash and other prizes will be awarded. If riding your Harley is more your style, then come on down Oct 20-23rd for The Emerald Coast Harley-Davidson Emerald Coast Earthquake is held at The Boardwalk on Okaloosa Island.
Events include live music all day, bike shows, Miss Emerald Coast Earthquake Bikini Contest, charity poker runs, vendors, food and drink specials at along the Boardwalk. Thousands of bikers enjoying the crisper fall air while riding along the beach.

No matter what you are here to do, we hope we see you for some great beach photography!!

Solaris Wedding Photography

Sandestinwedding photography #destinflSeth and Rachel had a multi-part wedding photography session. It began along the Emerald Coast at dawn  and ended up that afternoon with a wedding upon the Solaris. I loved it because it gives the viewer two different looks for the wedding. Something you don’t normally have for sure. It was also really a ton of fun because one of Rachel’s bridesmaids had never been in the Gulf of Mexico and ran quickly after our sunrise shoot into the water to frolic for a moment. I know everyone was exhausted from the rehearsal dinner festivities, but they put a great face on it and we made some beautiful wedding formals that morning.

The Solaris is a dinner cruise yacht based out of Sandestin, a Gulf and bayside resort in Destin. Shortly after pulling out from the dock, we began the wedding ceremony on the roof of the boat. The weather was perfect for a destination wedding. Sunny but not to hot with a little wind. After the wedding Rachel, Seth and their guests went into the Solaris for dinner and dancing. They finished out the evening with a sparkler exit at the Village at Baytowne Wharf on the dock.

Congratulations Seth and Rachel and we hope you love their wedding images from their Destin, Fl destination wedding!

Santa Rosa Beach Love |Engagement Photography | SoWal

Santa Rosa Beach Photography

Olivia and Nick will say their vows next weekend at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Fort Walton Beach. I am so excited to be their wedding photographer. When we went to SoWal to do their engagement photography, Eden Gardens State Park was the perfect place to go! Their love language is so adorable!! Recent graduates of the Air Force Academy they are full life and love.

Santa Rosa Beach is known for it’s wonderful live oaks with the Spanish moss and of course the emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Olivia and Nick decided on Eden Gardens for their engagement photography to take advantage of the wonderful antebellum home and of course the amazing oaks and fountains that line the property. It’s Florida’s version of a Louisiana plantation.  While having their engagement photographs made it was fun to watch them laugh and play with each other. It is so much fun when you have playful couples. Their love language is so apparent and a ton of fun to capture!

Eden is a great place for your wedding or just to visit. You can learn more about it at Check out the wedding tree and learn about the fascinating history of the house and acreage. Another great resource for the area is where you can see everything about South Walton County, a highly sought after area of the Florida Panhandle.santa rosa beach fldestiny wedding photographySanta Rosa Beach Engagement PhotographySoWal photographyEngagement PhotographySoWaldestin photographerEngagement Photography_0028
