Can anyone suggest a photographer for our small beach wedding?
Can anyone suggest a photographer for our small beach wedding? We would only need their service for about an hour. Like to do it for little money if we can.
We already have our decorations lined up and an officaiate for the ceremony. Just need someone to take the pics for us.

I would suggest Bella Bliss Photography. The photographer is Amy Oaks. She is absolutely amazing and very low priced compared to most around here. You can find her business on Facebook and there you will also be able to preview the work she has done. Don't say NO until you give it a peek. Good Luck with your wedding and finding your photographer.

On that particular beach there is a narrow path leading to the beach, through sea oats.
There is a concrete walk to the jetties, with sea oats on either side. There's a wooden walkway with sea oats on either side, which does not extend to the beach itself. This narrow path is the only way to the beach. If you'll look at pictures 185-189 you can see the path more clearly.
Sorry that we've gotten off on the wrong foot, sir! There is no one who loves the beach more than me...
I invite you to view my work on another forum: EmeraldCoastPierFishing.com (Panama City section)
I am also an avid fisherman and respect all creatures and creations of the Gulf.

You'll notice for scale that there are some vehicles, looks like plenty of room to walk with going into a dune. Speaking of scale those folks are standing in a dune and not a "narrow path".
I'm not sure what fishing has to do with this though.

OMC...that photography link froze up my computer!Which community along 30A shall we pillage this evening?....gttbm
It's not OK to be on the dunes and it's not OK to post a picture of people on the dunes, especially on a "professional site". It spreads the bad message that it is OK.

Thank you all for the warm welcome to the forum. It's so nice to meet ya'll, too :)
When I moved my home from Georgia to Florida two years ago, I was planning on moving into a friend's condo in Santa Rosa Beach. Instead, I chose PCB for it's more central location in the panhandle. I pay double what I would have in Santa Rosa, but it's well worth it. I have clients from all over the United States and Canada who come to our glorious beaches, who stay everywhere from Pensacola to St. George Island.
I look forward to running into each of ya'll on the beaches sometime! I've met several long time local photographers in the last three summers, as there are popular spots on each beach that we all like to use.
In fact, I checked out four other photographers suggested on this thread and three of the four have shots displayed that are very similar to my dunes photos.
SWGB, it's a shame you don't have time to fish...it's great for stress relief! With all your time spent working and 'community involvement' it sounds like you need some stress relief. With an average of fourteen posts per day on this forum it looks like you need to give your eyes a rest and enjoy some of God's artwork. ...Not to mention there are tons of hot men out there fishing ;)
Kurt, please also remind forum members that professional photography that is copied and /or displayed without express written consent from the owner is considered copyright infringement and is punishable by law.

Once again I am so glad to have made ya'lls acquaintance, and I'd like to share my Beachscapes galleries with ya'll : Ana Edwards photography : Landscapes, Nightscapes...and Fishing : The Beach
Miss Kitty...try running CCleaner to remove all the junk our computers get filled with. It'll keep your computer from freezing when viewing high-resolution websites :)
Ya'll have a great day! Look forward to seeing you soon! :)

Now, SWGB...just in case you noticed this one and think I'm actually throwing a protected starfish up in the air...
Here's the original. Who would've guessed you could catch this beautiful creature on squid?!:
A photograph can so easily be misinterpreted, whether because it doesn't show enough of the surroundings, or because of lack of knowledge or understanding of perspective ...or Photoshop, in this case.
I'm in Georgia 'til Sunday, then going to North Carolina's coast to photograph five families. When I return to the panhandle on the 29th, we should meet at Mexico Beach so I can show you the exact spot where these were taken...on the path to the beach. Fishing is great from this little spot...maybe I can get you hooked :)

No thanks, I have plans.
How is catching a starfish on a hook better than throwing it in the air?
11-19-2010, 07:14 PM #29
It wasn't hooked at all, Scooter pooter :) ...just hanging on to that squid. Do you need reading glasses? :)
But to answer your question: Hmmm...maybe because throwing would be a deliberate act...? Surely you people aren't so sheltered you think people TRY to catch starfish while fishing.
So...is this like a ritual of ya'lls forum...? Bash any newcomers who find their way here?
Jus' sayin'...ya'll certainly seem to have some people with issues. Surely they aren't all like that in South Walton...that would make it a dreadful place to live or even visit. I'll think positively, as I always do...that there are just a few of ya'll here with some insecurities. Do I need to put my degree in psychology to work and help with some counseling?

Photography of people in the dunes is a touchy subject and has been discussed many times here over the years. We are against it. If you have pics of people in the dunes on your site representing your work you are going to catch some heat, but it doesn't need to get personal.
Simply put, it doesn't matter if you photoshopped the happy couple into a photo of dunes from Madagascar, it is sending the wrong message. I am not trying to be mean about it, just letting you know the facts.

I suppose I might be over reacting. I just haven't seen any posts regarding the photography sites also recommended on this same post, who also display on their home pages pictures which also look like they were taken 'in' the dunes. Maybe they knew better than to thank the members who recommended them, for fear of chastisement. I would think, they, like me, know how to place their clients on the sand in a way that displays the beautiful sand dunes in the background with tufts of sea oats and grass nearby but not touched, giving them a portrait that shows the natural beauty of our beaches.
I've offered to meet SWGB at the spot on Mexico Beach, which he refused.
I might have over reacted when Miss Kitty declared that my website froze her computer, as if warning others not to view it.
Maybe Scooter wasn't intending to suggest that I would hook a starfish intentionally.
As an artist who is also a businessperson, I will continue to give my clients the beautiful artwork they expect and pay well to receive. They ask for portraits with both water and dunes and/or sea oats as backgrounds. I explain to them that there is a fine for damaging the sea oats and the dunes, and that they must keep their children under control and within the area I place them in.
I invite any of you to introduce yourselves when you see me working on the beaches. You can follow me around if you like and witness how these portraits are created.

You are a wonderful photographer and when you are as good as you are,you are going to have those that want to criticize your work,unfortunately it comes with the territory.I think Kurt is a photographer and I am sure he would feel the same way.
The R4 Leica was an amazing artistic tool.

No worries, WTW :) I appreciate the referral. If we ever meet in person we can share a good laugh at all of this ...Lord knows it's been a looong time since I had drama like this! I have a pretty boring life, really... a workaholic artist, who fishes for therapy. A very peaceful existence which I thoroughly enjoy. And plan to continue to the End. Drama wastes energy which can be put to much better use.

This is a quite entertaining thread. A good rule of thumb; stay off the dunes.
