For us Photography is a way of life
Trey and I both see everyday things and think “That would make a great photo”. Photography is just part of our everyday life.

This is Us!
Let me tell you a little more About Us!
Beach Shutters is a husband & wife photography team based on the beautiful coast of Alabama. We share a love of photography, our family, boating, tennis & our dog, Scout! You can find us at the beach or on the boat if we are not busy taking & editing photos. Believe it or not, we love traveling, especially to the beach. I guess that is how you know you’re a true beach lover… when you live on the coast and vacation at other beach destinations!
We are all About Family.
We still have one little birdie in the nest. Her name is Summer, and she is our very best photography assistant! If you want to hire her to help with your little ones this year, let us know upon booking. She does an excellent job wrangling families, joking around with parents, and entertaining the kids. Summer can help grab the kid’s attention, then run behind the photographer. This has resulted in many fantastic family portraits. Wonder how we get everyone looking so happy? Now you know our little secret!
I was an Art Major when the photography classes used the darkroom to develop film.
Yes, that was long ago! I am continually blown away as digital technology improves. For this very reason, Trey and I upgrade cameras every other year. By the way, our new 2022 models arrived this week. I am beyond excited! My love of art brings me joy & photographing families is my favorite way to be creative. I am passionate about capturing emotion and have to stop and make myself take a few traditional beach portraits. The images I treasure aren’t forced, nor can they be recreated. It may be a kiss on the nose or a carefree twirl. These moments let me know our session is going well & my clients trust me enough to enjoy the experience & go with the flow! Examples of our works have been featured in magazines & publications, but most importantly, in homes across the USA.
Trey is my techy!
He can fix anything I break and is on call 24/7. He does all of the camera research to ensure we have the best equipment and can create a pre-set on lightroom that turns an ordinary photo into something extraordinary! His computer engineering background is impressive & I would not be where I am today without the technical support of this patient man. If you are lucky enough to have Trey as your photographer, you will see that he takes his job very seriously. He is so precise with poses, composition, and lighting… all you have to do is show up and smile!
For the most part, if you sign up for a photo session with Beach Shutters, you will meet either Trey or me on the beach. During the summer months, we do hire a 3rd shooter for overflow. If you have ever met one of our assistants, you know how particular we are in choosing the best! This year’s 3rd photographer will be Tyla once again. She is also a local photographer & we are thrilled to have her on our team!
That is About it for the About Us! I appreciate your interest in our photography, and we hope you use Beach Shutters Photography for your vacation beach portraits this year and always!
