best pensacola Beach Photographer

for your family

beach portrait photography

family Beach photography is a specialty of all of our Full-Time Wave photographers. If you’re vacationing along the Gulf Coast, let us document your stay with a beach photoshoot.  

We know the best secluded beaches for family beach portraits, from the towns of 30A (Rosemary Beach, Watercolor, Seaside, and Santa Rosa Beach), to Pensacola Beach, to the Alabama coast (Orange Beach and Gulf Shores).  

If you’re on a dream vacation, schedule a family beach portrait session and make memories that will last well beyond the summer.


Just a few of Our favorite places around pensacola and navarre!!

Ft Pickens

If you love history, nature, or just want a quiet beach, try heading to Fort Pickens, inside the Gulf Islands National Seashore.  The old Civil War fort is open to the public, and you can wander the brick archways and battlements at your own pace (guided tours are also available).  Within the park, there are campgrounds (both primitive and RV), and multiple beach access points that allow you to enjoy the white sands and crystal clear water without the crowds.


Portofino Island Resort on the Emerald Coast in Florida

Portofino Island Resort

Portofino Island is a top notch luxury resort located on the far eastern end of Pensacola Beach.  You can rent one of their beautiful sky homes for your vacation, and take advantage of their multiple pools (indoor and outdoor), spa, restaurants and adventure water park.  The resort is close enough to bike to Pensacola Beach’s shops and restaurants, but far enough from other hotels that your beach experience can be private and relaxing.

Casino Beach

Casino Beach is the “downtown” of Pensacola Beach.  Spend your days (and evenings) lounging on the beach, fishing from the pier, and trying all the restaurants, from casual seafood joints to fine dining.  The Boardwalk features a variety of shopping options, for souvenirs, clothing, or home decor!


Navarre Beach portrait of boy at sunset

Navarre

Navarre Beach is a quiet beach community about 20 minutes east of Pensacola Beach.  It’s perfect for families or couples who want to spend their time swimming, sunning, and fishing.  There are a number of condos and hotels right on the beach, or you can rent a beach house if you need more space.  You can play beach volleyball and rent paddle boards at Juana’s Pagoda, an open-air restaurant and bar complex that is always full of locals and tourists alike.

Gulf Island National Seashore

Florida’s Gulf coast is lined with a series of national parks, each protected from development and providing areas where you can enjoy natural and secluded beaches and dunes.  Some areas offer camping, others have day use pavilions for rent, and others are just long stretches of beaches with nothing but sand and water. Take a drive through either of areas in Pensacola Beach (the developed beach is bookended by protected seashores on both the western and eastern ends), or bring a towel and park in one of the parking areas to spend the day exploring!

WE ARE A TEAM

We are a team of award-winning artists with only one job… to provide the highest quality photography and experience for every session we shoot. Unlike other photography companies that subcontract your session to part-time photographers or work as a photographers on the side, all of our photographers are full-time salaried employees of our company.

WE CAPTURE ART

Many photography companies shoot hundreds of photographs and toss them all at their customers, assuming quantity is the goal of the modern photography customer. Instead, we work everyday to create the quality images that deserve to be hung in your home for decades. We offer both print and digital options to our clients and create a collection that best meets your needs.

WE OFFER AN UNMATCHED EXPERIENCE

We are the only photography company on the Gulf Coast with a full-time Client Experience Manager. Her only job is to ensure that every client has a premier photography experience to match the unforgettable images they will receive.

WE BELIEVE IN BALANCE

Faster is not always better. In most cases, we have a proofing gallery available to our clients within a couple of days of session. We are careful to make sure that the images we deliver meet only the highest standards. Subsequently, all of our clients are given the opportunity to proof and select their images online at their convenience. Some choose to visit with us at our downtown studio in Pensacola and see their images and our prints and products in person.

WE ARE PROFESSIONALS

Our team shoots over 100 weddings and countless portraits each year, from Gulf Shores and Orange Beach to Destin and 30A. We deliver approximately 250,000 high-quality images per year to clients who fall in love with our studio. We shoot with natural and artificial light each and every day. We only use the highest quality professional equipment. In short, we demand excellence and professionalism from ourselves, as you would expect from a modern photography company.

WE DELIVER TRUE-TO-LIFE IMAGES

We strive to produce the best version of our beautiful clients and the stunning dreamscapes that nature provides. No fake skies or heavy photoshop in our images! We have a timeless, modern, and fresh style that won't look dated in a decade.

WE KEEP IT SIMPLE

If it rains out a session and we can’t reschedule, we refund your session fee (in full). No nickel and dime convenience fees. No travel fees. All of our collections are posted on our website. No nonsense.
