5-Star Reviews

Beach Shutters Photography appreciates all of your 5-Star Reviews! It means so much that many of you take the time to tell others about your experience with us. When searching for vacation rentals, restaurants, stores, or just about any product, I rely heavily on reviews and opinions of previous customers. These days, the same is becoming true for services like photography now. We live in a world of stars and ratings, don’t we?

Making the most of a vacation is easy with this crew.

You get out of life what you put into it, right? The same is true for family vacations, lol! Spending time with extended family is the best way to create traditions that carry on for generations, yet we don’t always take the time to make it happen. But when we do, it makes magical memories for everyone, especially the kids.

Happy people make happy photos!

Here is an example of an extended family session that left us not one 5-star review but two!

I will tell you about our evening and then share the comments that 2 of the participants were kind enough to leave on Google. Spring weather can be very temperamental. Have you noticed all the sayings about in like a lion, out like a lamb? How about April showers and bringing May flowers? Well, wind and rain are expected during this time of year, but at the beach, there is one more condition to deal with. Fog! Furthermore, as the temperature warms, the humidity hovers over the gulf. For this reason, foggy conditions have been the norm!

Here come the granddaughters!

The days leading up to Allison’s family photos had a little bit of all three conditions!

The fog, wind, rain, and a temperature dip were all trying to mess up the vacation week. Allison said photos were important to her & she was willing to brave whatever Mother Nature provided. It was windy & chilly! No one complained; we just got after it and took the photos between gusts!

Family love!

Rarely do we get a perfect day for photos, but we almost always get ideal clients!

If you go with the flow or, in this case, the blow, the photos come out happy and fun! Candid, lifestyle, documentary beach portraits are what these ladies wanted, and it is exactly what they got! A big shout out to the smallest family members who brought life to the session & their smiles and laughter were contagious.

Here are the 5-star reviews:

We had a great experience with Cynthia from Beach Shutters Photography! She was very professional and friendly and was wonderful with the kids! Cynthia knows the best spots for photos and how to pose for the best shot possible. The photographer even brought her daughter, who was a HUGE help with two active girls. Our pictures turned out so amazing. I am beyond thankful that she captured such great family photos of our vacation to Orange Beach. I 100% recommend Beach Shutters! You will not be disappointed!!

Orange Beach, Alabama photographers.

Allison & Jacob, thank you for choosing Beach Shutters Photography!

We loved our experience with Beach Shutters Photography!! She was professional and timely and took the most precious photos of our family. Cynthia knew how to pose everyone, including our three and 5-year-olds, for the best shot. Furthermore, she was extremely accommodating with the inconsistent weather so we could have the best possible pictures. We would 100% book again ❤️
