I am a portrait photographer living in Baldwin County and serving Gulf Shores and other coastal communities along the Gulf Coast including Orange Beach, Perdido Key, Pensacola Beach, and Dauphin Island. Destination beach weddings in Orange Beach and family vacation beach portraits are services I provide. I love natural light photography and if it looks great at the time of the shoot we roll with it. However, nature doesn't always cooperate as much as we would like it to. I also use portable studio lights to add a little pop or really go for a dramatic flare. Thunderstorms during the summer are always a possibility. As long as it isn't raining or lightning those clouds in the background can make for dramatic looking backdrops. If you are having a beach wedding, being prepared for just about any kind of weather will help insure you preserve the memories of your day.
Because I do not do summer mini-sessions your family has my full attention that afternoon. My outdoor sessions typically start an hour before sunset. We can watch the hourly forecasts and move the time up or down depending on how the radar looks. If for some reason we do have to cancel because of weather we can try a makeup day or shoot in the studio at Foley, Alabama.
Your vacation at the beach or wedding day is a fleeting moment. It seems the day will never come. Once it arrives, time moves quickly and is gone in an instant. My job is to freeze that moment in time and capture your history. This moment will never happen again. This is your story as a family as it is right now. These memories will be shared for generations and will be your legacy. It is enjoying the first time your child jumps into the water at the beach or celebrating the life of a grandmother that has been the solid rock for your family. It isn't about capturing perfection, it's about capturing the perfect moment. Long after the wedding reception, or after family members once again go their separate ways after the family reunion, the photographs will remain.
